Hand gesture tool

Any word yet on the mythical hand gesture tool? I wonder how that's going to work, it would be cool if we could use a Leap Motion Controller to form the signals with our hands and then implement them, and if we could share created signals with other divers. (Maybe through Steam Workshop?)

Also, what gestures are most important when diving? I'm no diver myself so I need some education so to speak ;-)

I'm curious too to know how is going the feature/tool! (but don't worry Vertigo as always stay focus on what you are already working!)
Also I had that on a corner who might be interesting you and the community:

that would be cool to learn all those signs and try to play with them

Babble, these gestures can try to link them into the game, playing the game more realistic.

Hand gustures is a great "realism" feature in WoD, but also a bit pointless. People are going to use ingame chat to communicate or use teamspeak to talk with eachother.

It makes hand gustures a bit pointless, i really hope that a lot of people are going to use hand gustures instead of ingame chat or teamspeak while underwater.

I don't like to use team speak in games, makes me feel like a weirdo sitting at a desk talking to myself haha. I think we should limit the use of a chat box to multiplayer lobbies and when we're hanging around our boats or islands. Maybe a computer on the ship or in the divehut could let us access the chatlobby or forum from within the game?

I think best would be handgestures, the whiteboard idea by Grimmycakes, and voice chat when using a full face mask. And maybe to discourage using voice chat too much we could say voice chat increases air consumption, thus limiting dive time?

I agree with Reinier, restrictions on the use of chat etc to add to the realism would be preferable to just being able to chat while diving. I hope the devs introduce the dive slate idea.

total freedom to perform hand gestures would be awesome. It will fun also to see how the community develop specific hand signals that stay and are commonly used ingame!
