    Based on this test in R7, the distance from which chat can be "heard" seems about right to me. When musical instruments are implemented I wonder if the hear-able range will be aligned with the "bubble" visibility range.

    This is how close you have to be to see the chat bubble:

    This is how close you have to be to see text in the local chat tab:

    Yep. The way we tweaked for this was... pretty much what you just did. Walked two players around and tried to determine when it would feel "right" that you couldn't hear them.

    In R8 NPC chat tabs will autoclose, at a far closer distance! We used the same kind of testing to see what was the right distance for that.
