\\ General Improvements //



  • Chat Commands
    Chat commands are commands a user may enter into the chat box to perform certain actions in-game. A chat command is signified by starting with a forward slash /.
    Any messages starting with a forward slash won't show in the chat box publicly, even if the command isn't valid.

    /w [username] [message]=> Allows you to message another player privately.
    /friend [username]=> Adds the user to your friend list.
    /block [username]=> Adds the user to your block list.
    /info [username]=> Opens the user's player info.
    /clear=> Clears the chatbox.
    /mod=> See how many moderators are online.
    /g [message]=> Sends a message to group chat.
    /p [message]=> Sends a message to party chat.
  • Game Localization
    How many of you think it would be a good idea if the game was translated into other languages? Due to general thoughts that have been popping up over time regarding game translation and localization, I started working on a project that'd support the including of players from many different cultures and backgrounds. I wanted to ensure a truly authentic experience for our players - regardless of their nationality. It'd be great if we could have the option to choose the language of our game or something of the sort implemented in the upcoming patches. What's more, game translation and localization also opens doors to advertise FHU worldwide!

    /langue [language] => Changes the language used by the game (must be a valid 2-letter language code). I.e. /langue es.


    An additional proposition, if a multilingual staff member is willing to assist players in a language other than English, they would get a little flag under their icon on the Staff page. It could possibly encourage foreign users to brings problems and questions to the moderation team.

  • Report System


    By clicking it, the button would open up a window where you will be asked why you would like to report the player and where you must attach at least one screenshot. Diversely, it would take the player to a "How to Report A User" thread where both old and new users can learn how to report an in-game user if they didn't know how to already and the reporting system can still work the way it does through the forum using the tools we already have.

    /report [username] => Opens up the report window where you'll be asked why you would like to report the player.

    If you're caught abusing the report system to spam and/or annoy the mods, it could result in a warning, kick and in some cases a ban from the game.
  • Chat Tabs
    Whispering is a feature that allows you to send private messages to another user. You could whisper by using the /w [username] [message] command, or by clicking on someone’s username and then clicking the Whisper button in their Info tab. It would be amazing if we could have separate tabs for every single whisper conversation we have with other players.

  • Sanctions Section
    Whenever an account is banned in-game and this account logs in the forums, a pop-up notification saying "Your account has been banned. Click here for more information." would appear. The link will lead them to a section in their forum profile with previous and recent sanctions. The section will be composed of information about the type of the sanction, the reason, the duration and when does it end. The only issue I would see here is if a user is also banned on the forum, preventing them to see the aforementioned section.

    Example (Outdated):
  • Small Announcements (Monthly Newsletter)
    I suggest the creation of a thread for small announcements that don't need a brand-new thread, such as what is going on behind the curtains, as well provide updates on game server downtimes, staff resignations, promotions and absences, updates on rules and topics, transparency on current discussions, teasers for upcoming events, community statistics and charts, etc. It would remain locked and only staff members would be able to post.
  • Community Portal (Player Submitted Content)
    It'd be amazing having a large selection of player submitted fan art, game fan fiction and screenshots. Great community contributions and fun content may even be highlighted in update threads, monthly newsletters and livestreams (Fan Screenshot of the Month, Fan Art Spotlight, etc). The finest creations would also be showcased throughout official FHU social media.
  • Bigger Item List
    Back in 2018, Disgustedorite had made a modification, which made it possible to enlarge your item list. Tired of difficult pixel-perfect scrolling? Make it an implementation in the upcoming patches.

  • Variety of Biomes
    First and foremost, I would like to start off by saying that Impressive Title allowed for exploration of a massive world with a wide variety of biomes to explore, from a frozen tundra to a roiling volcano. The public maps need different styles and forms, some additional fun elements, and last but not least, a variety of biomes. The community, as roleplayers, needs more environments, such as a tropical rainforest (jungle) biome, a desert biome, a swamp/bog biome, a savanna biome, a tundra biome, and maybe even a volcano biome. The idea of biomes would provide different habitats for all kinds of unique characters, species and roleplays to fit the needs of players with social interests and love for different environments. It's less boxed in and looking back at the aftermath of previous map updates, I feel people prefer when maps aren't connected by walls but rather by water.



Thank you for taking the time to read my suggestion thread. Please let me know your thoughts in the comment field below!

Yeah, right? Slash commands can save time by allowing you to complete an action in one simple step. And on the subject of chat tabs, it would be rather easier and far more convenient to keep conversations organized into different tabs in view of the fact that the whisper chat log far surpasses the room chat log when it comes to keeping log history. Having regard to the foregoing, it would be also beneficial to keep whoever you're talking to in a tab so you don't miss a whisper if you walk away from the computer or tab out of the game.

A lot of these are great and i personally would love to see! o:

I definitely love the chatbox improvements and smaller tweaks to make things more efficient. especially the chat tabs, we'll see what can be done but I think a lot of these are great!
I can also affirm that reporting will look different compared to oFH, and when we have our system in place we'll be sure to add guides and FAQs, same with monthly newsletters. I think that would be a nice way to gage more activity and also just showcase some stuff in the community, especially with the community portal in mind

Thank you for these! <3

I used the bigger item box mod and loved it, to bad its not usable with this update, maybe we can get extra tabs in the markings too so they can have a bigger box too.
Also bigger chat box please, I cant even write 1 proper para in it.

i can't explain enough how important and helpful the multilingual assistance is.
english definitely seems to come off as the "default" language of this game, but i do occasionally catch russian and spanish in the chat! multilingual fn assistance members and staff are,, very essential in this community.

I completely share your opinion! It'd definitely encourage the including of players from different places of the world to bring their problems and questions to the Staff team.
