Communications Protocol
Imperial Database > Communications Protocol

The following represents a simple to use standard for in-game transmissions between different characters. Using it is optional, not required. It exists solely as a resource for you. Messages should be posted in the relevant thread.
CodeMeaning
Open Sometimes messages are sent completely unencoded; either because you don't have NIF military standard communications available, or because you want to send it openly.
Voice Real-time audio message. Most fighter pilot comms are done in voice. Not encrypted unless secured. Voice messages should be enquoted.
Holo A live, real-time 3d hologram transmission sent either over viewscreen or full-size projection. Holo messages should be enquoted.
Secure All military communication is encrypted by default, but a secure channel is very difficult to intercept and will take considerable time to decrypt. Can only be sent with sufficient resources, such as from a capital ship or communications central. However, ISIS Agents have devices to send secure messages while in the field.
Priority A priority transmission is sent forcibly. It increases the speed with which it is received, decrypted and answered. An unimportant priority message reflects badly upon the sender.
Direct A direct line is a connection directly between two people, which increases response time considerably. Note that this form of communication may be declined by the receiving party.
END End of transmission.
