Coalition Communication Resources

There are tons of resources available for communication within our coalition, from our VoIP services like Mumble to organization programs like Slack and Discord. Here's instructions on how to install each of them, along with how to join our coalition servers.

Essential services are marked with a Critical label.

If you are just joining Brave, please consult the IT Services Setup page to find out what services you need to setup.

Slack is program that was originally meant to help organize businesses and development teams. Groups from several games have begun to utilize it though as it offers a superb API, and makes it easy to send notifications to team members when needed. It's unique in that it uses individual accounts for each workspace, instead of a master account for all servers like Discord uses.

Note: Slack is available through a browser app for those that can't or don't wish to download the desktop app.

Brave's Slack is essential to participating in alliance and coalition activities. This is the only place to receive pings about upcoming fleets, and a great place to chat with your alliance mates and organize future fleets.

This service requires an email to setup, and this email will be visible to Slack Admins. If you don't want to dox yourself, create a new free email address using a service such as Gmail.

A list of public channels can be found down in the Additional Resources section below, and these channels are prefixed with a . Our workspace also contains private channels, which can be accessed by joining various groups or participating in certain activities, and these are instead prefixed with a .

Discord is similar to Slack but also offers voice and video chats that work with small groups. Its API is inferior to Slack's, but unfortunately it's also easier to initially setup than Slack is, so here we are.

Note: Discord is available through a browser app for those that can't or don't wish to download the desktop app.

All coalition formup pings are sent from here. It's also a good place to receive general pings and reliable intel about hostiles in our space, and has many dedicated people doing regular sweeps for wormholes.

This allows you to easily join and authenticate multiple servers without needing someone to manually give you permissions to do what you need to do.

Saving a Server as a Bookmark

This process allows you to quickly connect to a Mumble server without logging into its owner's Auth Site each time.

Walkthrough

  2. Click Server > Connect… in the upper left corner of Mumble.
  3. On this popup click Add New.
  4. At the top of the new popup click the Fill button.

Removing Text-to-Speech Notifications

On large Mumble servers text-to-speech notifications can quickly become overwhelming. Here's how you can disable them.

Walkthrough
  1. Go to Configure > Settings at the top left of Mumble.
  2. On the sidebar, select Messages.
  3. Uncheck all boxes in the Text-To-Speech column.
    1. You can also customize Console Messages, Desktop Notifications, and Sounds from specific events here.

Setting Up a Whisper Key

On most Eve related Mumble servers, "Whisper Keys" replace the standard Push to Talk key to give more control of who people can talk to.

Standard Push to Talk keys on these servers are known as "Shout Keys," because they broadcast your voice to all channels linked to the one you're in. Whisper Keys on the other hand only broadcast to the channel you're currently in.

Walkthrough
  1. Go to Configure > Settings at the top left of Mumble.
  2. On the sidebar, select Shortcuts.
  3. Click Add at the bottom of the window.
  4. Change the function of the new shortcut to Whisper/Shout.
  5. Click the shortcut's Data field, then click the ellipses.
  6. At the top of the new popup select Shout to Channel.
  7. Make sure Current is highlighted in the Channel Target Window.
  8. Make sure both Shout to Linked channels and Shout to subchannels are NOT checked.

Joining Multiple Mumble Servers at Once

If you often find yourself switching around comms for different fleets, you may find it handy to be able to join multiple mumble servers at once. Here's how you go about setting that up:

Walkthrough
  1. Find the shortcut you use to activate Mumble.
  2. Right click and open the properties panel.
  3. Find the "Target" field on the "Shortcut" tab, and add -m to the end of it.
  4. To launch a second window, right click on your shortcut and click Mumble again.
