Currently, runtime warnings and errors are printed to the main chat area. This makes it hard to read other players' text and is also extremely irritating. Perhaps it would be a good idea to print this information to an external console window, perhaps like the ones in the Quake and Source engine games?

    This would destroy temporal coherence and be a bad thing. Personally, I want a clear chronology of events, and dividing chat and messages and other messages makes it impossible to tell which event came first.

    Still, this may be possible with cockpits in the far future.
