In Ultima Online, the term Chat connotes two distinct systems for inter-player communications: the communications between party, guild, and alliance members and the communications between players in channels, which is referred to as "global." Until December 2009, global chat took place in a separate chat window; it is currently a command-line chat, like guild chat.
The commands required to participate in chat are as follows:
- /(space) Party
- \(space) Guild
- |(space) Alliance
- ,(space) any chat channel (e.g., Help, General, etc.) you currently are in.
Joining Leaving and Creating Channels
Select chat from the toolbar to see a list of the current chat channels. A channel selection/creation window will open that allows for joining, leaving, or creating a new channel.
