[Chat]

Configures the ChatModule in Simulators.

This module will send messages to all listeners in a region which are within range of the type of message sent.

Chat Configuration Item Default Example Description
enabled true true Controls whether the chat module is enabled
whisper_distance 10 10 Distance in meters that whispers should travel
say_distance 20* 20 Distance in meters that ordinary chat should travel
shout_distance 100 100 Distance in meters that shouts should travel

* Older revisions of OpenSimulator defaulted to 30 meters instead of the expected 20 meters.

ConciergeModule Note

The ConciergeModule may be used to replace the ChatModule and carry local chat message to everyone in a region regardless of range from the speaker, for meetings, presentation, or educational purposes.
