    No. It's freaking noisy darnit, get off my lawn.
    It's not hard to say, but it doesn't solve the majority of my problems. It won't restore the solitary atmosphere of exploring, and it won't make it easier to tell if someone is watching me or keep my contact's Housemates/citymates/friends from questioning their whereabouts.

    @Tecton listened to you guys, and there's a new command find peace and quiet from everyone in Achaea without feeling like you're blowing people off.

    Said this in the other thread, but in a time when getting people to step up and take on leadership roles, when I could not talk to people wherever, I was torn between the job I am supposed to do, and the fun I want to go have. I think for many players they feel bad if they are not around to do their jobs, help people and the like, when tells and communication can make that simpler.

    That said I wouldn't care if there was a config setting, so that people could turn it off like good ole commscreen.

    ship commscreen raise

    This even hides you on HT and CT from people also on ships. Yes, you'll still hear those people, but it's considerably less noisy and distracting

    While that's true, it also forces you to stay on your ship the whole time. It's not really the same as going offplane and hunting somewhere or actually exploring an island, etc.

    I enjoyed going off plane because I got to be left alone. Now with the new communication, I not can't tell who's in my hunting area (if I should hide or leave because it would be a waste of time ie Ulangi), or not annoy people about the fact I'm off plane and therefore can't induct/re-title/do fills/insert 10th request here for some errand.

    Only real advantage is if there's a raid then at least I can keep tabs on what's going on, not that I can make it back in time to help…

    I really enjoyed the silence when on islands. I sail out sometimes back then because I wanted a bit of tranquility and peace and time away from the main continent to think or do my own stuff. Now I'm unable to get it unless I stay on a ship or hide in a bed and it makes me moody.

    You can see who's on the same island by checking WHO B and seeing who comes up on thirdeye.

    @Eld yeah I know. My laziness just had me become reliant on doing:

    • *QW*
    • "Oh look only me, some novice and Phaestus (it's always Phaestus), moving right along."
    • *goes about business*

    Thanks, Eld. I'm okay with the extended communication thing, but then Shera is HoN, so she really finds it convenient. 
    Bleh, work ate my gaming life.

    It is really convenient, and overall I love the change. But there are some major downsides, so making the old isolation an option is pretty important in my opinion.

    Can't you just go off plane as opposed to off continent for alone time/secret meetings.

                   Party right, party hard,

    @Zeon that would assume a person has the mode of transportation.  That's a really challenging feat for those of us that do not yet know how to sail.

    @Idelisa I can't think of any offplane locations that can be reached by sailing.

    There aren't a lot of choices for offplane meetings though, and offplane actually tends to be more populated than many off-continent areas, since most of them (bopalopia, underworld, annwyn) are common bashing areas.

    And if you're actually trying to avoid someone who's looking for you, being offplane can make you even easier to find despite (or because of) not being visible.

    Maybe something in the HWHO/CWHO/CLWHO that says 'off-continent'?

    Can hold them on ships. Comm screen and such. Just need someone with enough knowledge to raise it.

    So what would be a viable solution to suggest?  An extension to the trait as mentioned by @Eilona?

    Perhaps a change to Silenceon?  

    Something else entirely?
