what if the chat could be not tied to having the game open?
so it would open in a new window.

Why? This is a game first, isn't it? Don't you want to play the game? Is it because you need a hat? [Hands El a big blue hat with a tall feather]

If it were possible to control the game outside the full flash interface (AIMbot apparently used to do this, or there could just be an HTML-only version), that might work.

Also, the chat is somewhat based on IRC (at least the /me is an IRC command). Tying it to a normally accessible IRC channel would be nice.

While I'd love a little radio chat fun, I'd much rather the dev team keep focused on finishing the upgrades to the game and get us all back in the air. Once this next round is underway then maybe it can be added to the list.

Isn't it possible to host chatrooms on AIM/iChat these days? Someone could set one up and then post the link in the forum. Or just set up an IRC channel (though I'm not much for IRC anymore).

Edit: Here's a link on how to set up a chatroom in AIM. Create Chat Room

Phil! Does this mean it is official now, or are you simply pointing out the existence of the unofficial alternative and not endorsing it in any way, shape, or form?

The irc chat that Phil mentioned is completely unofficial.

The Skyrates game and its developers do not endorse, support, or monitor that channel in any way.
