How to use text formatting in chat to optimise your roleplay potential!


Recommended Posts

The new chat on DarkRP is called Atlas Chat, it is very different to the old chat system in the way that you are now able to format your text with fancy colours and other formats which I will go over in this guide.

Spoiler
 

No Parse Text

This prevents anything within the noparse tags from being formatted, very helpful when showing people how to correctly format their text (if you don't point them to this guide that is).




<noparse><hsv>This is noparse text</hsv></noparse>

Spoiler Text

This gives a black spoiler bar across your text, it is not removable.




<spoiler>This is spoiler text</spoiler>

Reverse Text

This simply reverses your text.




<reverse>This is reverse text</reverse>

URL Text

This creates a clickable link in chat.

Limegreen Text

Can be made use the colour text formatting, not sure why its here.



<limegreen>This is limegreen text</limegreen>

HSV Text

This is rainbow text the cycles through the available colours.




<hsv>This is hsv text</hsv>

Colour Text

Atlas supports any RGB colour codes. You can find all of the RGB colour codes here and add where <c=(red value, 0-255),(Green value, 0-255),(Blue value, 0-255)>Text</c>




<c=255,0,0>This is red text</c>

<c=0,255,0>This is green text</c>

<c=0,0,255>This is blue text</c>

Flashing Text

This makes your text flash, it also handles coloured flashing. Very eye-catching.




<flash>This is flashing text</flash>

spacer.png




<flash c=255,0,0>This is a red flashing text</flash>

<cflash c=255,0,0 c=244,0,244>This is red to pink flashing text</cflash>

Vertical Scan

This allows you to have a piece of bar vertically "scan" over your text which can also draw many eyes. It also handles colours.




<vscan>This is vertical scan text</vscan>

<vscan c=255,0,0>This is red vertical scan text</vscan>

Horizontal Scan

This is very similar to vertical scan but instead is horizontal. Shares the same properties as vertical scan.




<hscan>This is horizontal scan text</hscan>

<hscan c=255,0,0>This is red vertical scan text</hscan>

Avatar

This allows you to use the steam avatars of either yourself or someones you "borrowed" through their steamid.

Icons

This allows you to use any of the icons that you are able to find here. It supports 16,16 up to 64,64, 16,16 is the original size of the icons so you will have the most clarity with that size.




<icon 32,32>icon16/bombs.png</icon>

spacer.png

Extra

These are phrases you say and will format as an icon. (Case sensitive)
