How hard would it be to have my comms window open (#2, w/cursor flashing) and when I speak, have what I say typed into that window with a send or enter key given?
This would allow me to open comms and speak to another commander, but have it sent as text on the private or local comms channel.
So, when someone is banging on my shields, I can open comms, say "Quit It!" and send it via text to the comms screen.
Or, has someone written a script for VA or EDDI, which will open the comms panel, say something and have it sent as a text to the comms window?
Just a thought.
