Is Little Orbit trying to cut out toxicity by cutting our ability to talk to eachother over mic ingame???

This isnt Fortnite and were not 12 year olds, quit babying us.

Judging by the general in-game behavior, we still have a way to go before we reach 12.

Not 12 year olds? I guess you're right. Citadel average is around 10. 

I want working voip but only with unlimited ignore list.

Another quality thread.

 

Perhaps because Project Winter is from this year (and running an updated version of Vivox). Perhaps because Matt has said MULTIPLE times that our version of vivox is hacked together and has several issues and is very low priority for them.

 

Edit:

 

The worst part is that he LITERALLY posted in your thread about this exact same issue, and yet you still posted yet another thread about it?

Speaking of things that are 12 years old, The implementation is about 12 years old for Vivox in APB.

 

The issue of Vivox not working has historically been a political and technical reason. It costs something like $45,000 a year for APB to run Vivox across all platforms.

The SDK APB runs on is a very old version Vivox. It hasn't seen an upgrade in a number of years. Also, Vivox has to make special versions of their network topology for APB, and it's a pain in Vivox's patootie every time it breaks. Vivox has created an updated SDK but it hasn't been worth the monetary investment for Reloaded or Little Orbit to update it, as the newer SDK integrates mostly into UE4 and not UE3.5, and there's a lot of functionality changes behind the hood.

 

So much functionality change, that it'd almost be financially not viable to dedicate a programmer making $75k/yr or more to fixing it. On top of that, there's actually cost-savings opportunities for using another service besides Vivox; or better yet removing it entirely in lieu of people making their own discord channels. Even better, Little Orbit could save $10,000-15,000 on operations cost by removing it from PC. There is very little benefit from having VOIP in APB native to the game client especially if the implementation doesn't work 90% of the time.

 

The VOIP landscape has changed drastically with options like Discord and other gaming-focused VOIP solutions like Xbox/PS4's native party/chat system.

 

Imagine what LO could do with it gone. They could hire 1/4th of a programmer, or 1 more community support team member.

 

It's time to kill Vivox for good, especially on a platform where there are alternatives to it.

Vivox? That stuff was always a problem. I prefer to have voice chat disabled and wait for the 3.5 update.
