    Beta 2.0.3b4 needs more extensive testing. It works fine on bPermissions/bPermissions nano
    Description: (open)

    Allows users to color their chat by using a configurable character (By default, the ampersand "&" and the carat "^") followed by a hexadecimal number (0-F). I recieved a request to post this plugin after someone used it on my server.

    Rainbow mode is toggled by a configurable command (by default "/colors" and "/colours"). This can be disabled in the settings.

    Admin can use the admin command (by default "/ca") to set and reset players' and groups' prefixes/suffixes. If you don't have permissions installed, the admin command will default to Op, and the two groups that will exist are: "Op" and "Default"

    Users can change their own prefixes and suffixes using configurable commands (by default "/prefix" and "/suffix").

    A small note about version numbers: x.y.z
    • X.Y represents the Minecraft version number that was out when the update was released.
    • The Z represents the release number.
    So the version 1.7.2 would indicate that it is the second release of the plugin, on minecraft 1.7

    Starting with version 2.0.0,
    The version number is unrelated to the minecraft version. It goes by major.minor.release
    Any questions, comments, suggestions, or plugin breaks (I'm not always on the latest version of CB), please post here.
    Example: (open)

    Hello &9there.
    results in:
    Hello there.

    /colors Hello there.
    results in:

    The Admin Command: (open)

    /<colorsadmin> [set/get/remove/reset] [prefix/suffix] [p:/g:] <name> (<prefix/suffix>)

    Command breakdown:
    • [Set/get/remove/reset]
      • Required
      • Remove and reset are alises
      • Remove and reset removes the prefix/suffix
      • Set sets a prefix/suffix
      • Get tells the admin what the current prefix/suffix is
    • [prefix/suffix]
      • Required
      • Self explanatory
    • [p:/g:]
      • Required
      • p: tells the plugin you are setting the player's prefix/suffix
      • g: tells the plugin you are setting the group's prefix/suffix
    • <name>
      • Required
      • Fill it in with either the group, or player name, depending on what you put for [p:/g:]
    • (<prefix/suffix>)
      • Required in certain contexts
      • Only use if you are setting a username [set]
      • Just type in the prefix/suffix you want to set here.
    To color a name, just set a prefix with the last 2 characters be the hex code for the color (using the character set in the properties file).

    /ca set prefix p: tyzoid &cAdmin &a
    When tyzoid (me) talks, it will look like this:
    <Admin Tyzoid> Hello.

    Thanks for reading man :D

    May i also suggest the option to change a player's name only.
    As of now, players color their names with "/prefix &_" however, that also allows them to add prefixes like "/prefix buttcrack" So maybe a seperate command that only allows hex codes? Maybe like: "/colorname &_"

    I know suggesting and coding are 2 different things but i hope at least faction support is added soon.
    Hope to use this on our server :)

    I think the easiest way to do this, is to use just permissions.

    • colors.prefix.*
    • colors.prefix.color
    • colors.prefix.text

    I'll see what I can implement. I'm pretty busy this semester, so I might not be able to code much :(

    Hey i put the .jar file into my plugins folder and then reloaded the plugins with /reload and the folder saying Colors like the one in the video hasn't appeared in the plugins folder.

    when i do /plugins it shows colors

    Is there a way to make your name a certain color so people know you are an admin?

    Hey how do you change the group people are in and can you do that int he console?
  10. Offline


    That depends on your permissions system.

    Colors currently supports bPermissions and PEX (and vPerms I believe, i'll have to check).

    If you don't have a permission system, or have one that colors does not currently support, there are two default groups.
    "Op" and "Default"

    to set the prefix for the groups, type

    /ca set prefix g: <groupname> <prefix>

    Colors in the player list (TAB) do not need a client mod.

    I'd like to know if this plugin supports the &k code.

    Really? I'm pretty sure I have seen plugins doing that without a mod. But maybe my memory spits out random stuff again :\
  16. Offline


    not sure what you meqn my "mod"

    That is just a custom dev version with that feature in it.

    No problem :p

    I think I may need to improve documentation somewhat :eek:
  21. Offline


    one quick question is there a designated way to set a color for each group? i use group manager
  22. Offline


    Not for groupmanager, sorry.

    By default, there should be two groups on your server, "Op" and "Default" if that helps any.

    Then just: /ca set prefix g: <groupname> &5

    Were you talking about prefix/suffixes? or about the color lock in the chat?
  23. Offline


    the color lock in chat

    can you add support for group manager in the next update please? other than that, amazing plug in

    Oh, did misunderstand that then. I said this because tyzoid stated that he doesn't believe it is possible withpout a client mod to color that list somewhen.

    Thanks for the new update, but one more quick question. I was wondering how to incorporate this into GroupManager where each group has their own specified chat color. I am a relatively new server owner so I am not the best at stuff like this. Thanks a ton

    the color lock seems to go away when i shut down or restart the server? I don't know if that is a problem or it is supposed to happen?

    Yea, I don't save it. Should be in the next update, as for your other feature request.

    thanks so much

    Please dont add saving for color lock if it will reduce performance :p

    Also, 2.0.3 returns unknown commands.
    No error logs

    It won't reduce performance...

    What 2.0.3 version are you using?
    Try this one: http://plugins.tyzoid.tk/plugins/colors/2.0.3a/Colors.jar
