I'm currently working on a top-down strategy game, and need to include a professional-looking chat system.
My current idea is a chat window with a small dropdown box beneath (with each player's name in, for whispers, and "all" for public chat) next to an input for the text, akin to Civ V's (the blue box in the top right):
However, I'm not sure of the best way to create this in BYOND.
My current idea is to use a small Browser element with an HTML dropdown box, but the borders automatically put in around the dropdown box make it look pretty clunky, and leaves little room for the input.
I'd greatly appreciate any ideas/advice: nothing's too wacky!
