FINAL FANTASY XIV Patch Notes
Real ID: A New Way to Connect With Your Friends on PlayOnline
One of our goals for the new PlayOnline is to create the framework for an online gaming experience that is even more accessible, more engaging, and more entertaining than the previous PlayOnline. The newly released Real ID feature, available to Final Fantasy XIV players as part of patch 1.0.2, is an integral part of this effort, providing you with advanced ways for forming and maintaining meaningful relationships with your friends on the service.
Real ID is a completely voluntary and optional level of identity that keeps players connected across all of PlayOnline. When you and a friend mutually agree to become Real ID friends, you'll have access to a number of additional features that will enrich your social gaming experience in new and exciting ways. Go here for more details.
User Interface
• Chat Frame
• Players can now right-click on any chat type (Tell, Party, Linkshell, etc.) and choose to move conversation types into separate windows. This will move that chat type to a separate tab in the Chat frame which can be undocked and moved anywhere on the screen.
• Using the Move to Tell Window option on a Tell will place the conversation with that player in a separate tab.
• Any time a conversation with another player is put into its own tab, the tab will glow when a new message is received.
• Hovering over the Chat Frame and using the mouse wheel will allow players to scroll through chat text.
• Friends List
• A new icon has been added to the top left of the Chat Frame which will open up the Friends list.
• In addition to its current functionality, the Friends List will now allow players to add PlayOnline accounts (Real ID). Players will have to confirm that they are friends in order for a Real ID to be added. Once Real ID friends, players can communicate cross-game, cross-faction and cross-world.
o A new Pending tab has been added where players can accept or decline a Real ID friend request, or select the Report Spam or Block Communications buttons.
o Players can now select from three statuses which will be visible to their friends: Available, Away and Busy.
o A Broadcast window has been added to the top of the frame. Players can use this to broadcast a message to all of their Real ID friends online. This message will also be displayed under the broadcaster's Real ID information in each friend's list.

Is that saying you can get linkshell chat offline? Or am I misreading what that is?

Don't think any of the playonline stuff will be mandatory, but it's nice to see that they're working on the little things that are already making me mad (stuff that FFXI did better than this release!) I think they're trying to integrate FFXI and FFXIV players together so that they don't have 2 different programs to go to for each game, which is smart on their part....Mikhalia, where did you find this?
