I don't think I have seen a thread about players chatting with one another. How should communication be handled? Should we just have friends lists that can communicate no matter what? I mean do we want players to be able to talk with one another on opposite sides of the planet? Or should communication be limited to line of sight? Late game radios and in-game internet would make planet wide communication possible later. So should it wait till then or just have game like chatting right from the get go? I know that if communication is limited then some people will just use an outside game method. Skype or whatever. But is that the 'flavor' the game should have. Or do you even care?
