Another setting I would like to see on the world server.
A way to set the distance one can see the conversations going on.
This is now fixed at 200 meters. 50 meters would be nice sometimes as one
really has to come more close to eachother therefor taking away that IRC
chatchannel effect away.

Think of it as real life. If someone's speaking even in a yell, can you hear
em clearly 50 meters away?

No, but a better idea would be able to specify "chat range groups" or something where, much like the phone bots--but without requiring them (I never DID like the idea of separate programs which AW should've had implemented into itself in the first place!), people could go out of AW's current chat range yet still get each other's messages. Another way to think of chat is like on a telephone/CB, so the realism aspect of such long-range communication in AW is not tainted. Another way for this to work could be for AW to automatically telegram the people that were in range and the sender's message didn't reach them.
