TheSymbols Chat Mod - Customise your chat experience!

Features can be customized!


Use new configuration mod "Mod Settings - Companion" to configure instead.

Default Changes
These are the changes which are in the mod as you download it by default, there are also "customisable changes" which can be found below and in the configuration creator[].

  • Whisper notification sounds
    A sound which plays when you receive a whisper, by default this is the forge upgrade sound.

  • Whisper color change
    The color of whisper messages is changed to be more readable by default.

  • Timestamp
    The timestamp is what shows the time a message was posted, this is set to 24 hour format by default.

  • "Easy reading mode"
    This feature is one which will be hit or miss for many people (but don't worry, it's customisable).
    Working differently in Trade chat and ST/Ultra chat, this feature is able to (most of the time) figure out what type of message is being sent (example: WTT/WTS/WTB for trade) and colors the entire message after that keyword a certain color.

  • Trade chat
    WTS and WTB have similar blue shades, which are pretty easily distinguishable at a glance.
    WTT is a vastly different color due to the fact that we thought having 3 blue shades might get confusing, this type of trade is also often rarer so this won't show up as often.

    Here is where this feature shines. When messages with multiple types of trade in them are recieved, it can change the color halfway through!
    This is especially helpful on those long messages listing a lot of items that might change from WTS to WTB halfway through.

  • ST/Ultra chat
    In shadow tower chat and Ultra chat the color change for "Looking for group" or "Looking for more" messages.
    LFM (also works with "X/8" being in the messages) colors the rest of the message in the "Looking for more" color.
    LF / LFG / INV / Invite all work for the "Looking for group" color.

  • Symbols (Emojis)
    Emojis are in the game! By default they are all turned on. There are 4 categories, these being "basic", "meme", "ST" and "trade".
    For a full list of emojis, look at the User guide / Manual[].

  • Basic emojis
    Basic emojis are things you'd expect, like smiley faces, these are available to use globally.

  • Meme emojis
    Meme emojis include various memes and emotes you might recognise from elsewhere, including some trove specific ones.
    These are limited so that they may not be used in ST and Trade chats, to reduce spam & clutter.

  • ST/Ultra emojis
    In shadow tower chats specifically, there are some emotes which operate within them.
    These emojis replace SW, WP, PIN and DOTM (also variations of them) with symbols of each tower taken from the game files.
    The emojis also change color to red or purple if "HM", "UM" or variations are mentioned during the message.
    (Warning: this won't work with multiple tiers of shadow tower and will just take the highest tier to color all emotes this way).

  • Trade emojis
    In trade chat specifically there are some emotes which operate within them. These emotes (for now) are symbols for pearls and stars relating to gear.
    They replace instances of "5*" or "5 star" with the star emojis.
    This is also the case with Pearls, when "1 Pearl" or "1P" through to "8 Pearl" or "8P" is typed in.
    All of the Trade emojis are created by SkyRider3217! (Huge thanks to her <3)

Customisable changes
Use new configuration mod "Mod Settings - Companion" to configure instead.
There are many of you that might want your version of the mod to be slightly different, say, changing a few colors you dislike, removing a group of emojis that you do not wish to see.
Fear not! There are many things about this mod which are customisable by the user via the prefab file, find out more about it on my website's configuration creator[].

Want to get more emojis in-game? Then head over to the request form[]!

@Forsaphien, the companion mod has instructions for how to set it up properly in its description.

@Kin Kita, yes its e_club option (it's misslabeld hence why you might not have found it but can't really rename because then i break it for others already having it configured), and yes its possible to adjust the height of the chat while typing (hmax) and while just playing (hmin).

Is there a way to remove the club tags in chat? And i'm unable to find the command to resize the chatbar in the manual

Website it up again. Thanks for fixing it! Is there a way to change the emoji icon from Avarem's face to something else? If not, I suggest that feature. :)

@~Élunia~, at the moment no, Trove UI doesnt work well when its being moved due to technical limitations, i am trying to figure out a workaround but no promises.
