Can I turn off AI autochat?

You people are !@#$ing annoying with your stupid autochat spam on your avatars.

There is an entire section of Chat Settings dedicated to adjusting Auto Chat display:

Yes, and unfortunately none of it applies to the AI in your group. bd0b319b-8800-44c4-a3ea-eda7e283516a-image.png

I just double checked to see if this was a Global version bug, but it looks like even on JPN there isn't a way to disable Autochat from AI allies. I'll dig some more and see if there is something I missed, though.

You would be my absolute hero. In a game where there is already tons of screen clutter, having people plaster their faces with shout bubbles on the screen every time I take a step is horrible. If it wasn't for the FUN, I'd never EVER bother with AI for that reason alone.

Yeah this has been bugging me since launch. Hope they eventually get around to fixing this.

Reason now I when I go solo, I go solo.

u could set u chat window to alliance or group chat then only the bubbles would be left from ai dunno if u can turn bubbles off in the options if yes problem solved else u have to live with it

Add friends who don't use auto chat and use their avatars. You still get FUN for using friend avatars.

Don't pick me though because I go full on with the faces and for every action that has a line my character is based on would say :).

Trust me, I've heard horror stories of the loli characters spamming canned sexual ACs. Probably just added to the roster for attention.

Thankfully I haven't had this issue, but a way to mute them would be nice.

I don't go solo because I want the titles of the NPCs but yeah players companions are annoying as hell sometimes, some people just abuse the auto chat feature

This made me laugh. Like you seem super worked up over something so small.

@Hatsodoom I have to admit, I'm guilty of telling people to shut up sometimes. lol It gets really annoying when they're spamming porn SAs and ERP ACs in local during a multi-team mission. Not quite the same thing since that's easily muted, but I imagine not being able to fix it other than booting them and having to go back to the gateway ship to recruit someone else would be pretty annoying too.

It's just as bad as meseta bot spam. Useless, screen cluttering spam on top of all of the screen clutter the game already throws at you.

I'd call it worse, even, because bot spam at least happens in the lobby during down time, whereas this is constant in your face spam when you're trying to actively play, and on top of that it is the players themselves creating this spammy nonsense.

This is literally an advertised feature, that has a quest related to it. Players use it to bring life to their otherwise silent characters. Seems to me, some of you folks here don't like RPG games, as this is a JPMMORPG. I personally like seeing the creativity of others.
