I'd love these in the game, But some are a bit much to code.

Voice Chat

Auto Translation

Moving while typing (Automatically forces character to keep walking towards cursor while user types)

Selectable text

Clickable links

Text to speach

Sounds to text (Subtitles)

It's already possible to move while typing - hold a directional key (W, A, S, or D), then press your chat keybind and start typing. Your character will keep moving in the same direction as long as you hold the directional key, but you won't be able to change it nor will you be able to use the directional key in your message (since you're holding it, and releasing it brings your character to a stop). While not ideal, this still comes in handy when chasing people or generally avoiding having to stop to type while walking.

Not sure if this is an effect of playing on Linux or replacing the GLFW library with Debian's (since textboxes fail to work at all with the bundled one), but I'm able to select text just fine, shortcuts included (eg. shift+ctrl+arrow):

I reckon that TTS would be a fun and interesting thing to have ingame. I'd love to have it for rp, as being able to choose a voice that suits your characters the best would be a great way to expand on their personalities and overall identity.

Deleted my previous post because I'm stoopid.

I CAN ctrl+shift+arrow. What I can't do is Ctrl+A (irrelevant, now that you can just press escape to erase written dialogue) and Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V (probably by design, and a good thing).
