    Plugin name: Citizens Subtitles

    Feature request: Using ProtocolLib or Scoreboard to add subtitles to Citizens NPC names.

    Require: compatible or hook into Citizens 2.

    Command:

    /npc subtitle npcsubtitle

    As well supporting colors/formats. /npc subtitle &3[&6Sub Title&3]

    So it would appear

    NPCName
    [Sub Title]

    Regards,

    @madtomic
    What exactly do you mean by way of Subtitles, there can be multiple Meanings of this.
    It would be nice if you could include a Screenshot.

    @mrCookieSlime I'm guessing that right underneath the name, you'd set a subtitle, so it'd look like:

    Michael
    Blacksmith

    or something.

    Basically just more customizable text under the NPC's name.

    Minecraft doesn't support 'subtitles' on NPC names natively.
    (You can a score subtitle: a single global message that appears for everyone but has a unique number per person... but that's probably not what you want)


    You'd probably have to use a hologram plugin to achieve that...


    I think there is no other way besides using hologram. :(

    Anyone know if it can be done in another way. Please post.

    You could check if the player was looking at another player and/or npc and use Title and Subtitles.

    @madtomic You could have a named&invisible armorstand.

    Maybe the Action Bar could be used, and just use what is in the sub title section, since the name can only be seen.

    Thank you both for the suggestions but those options aren't available on my server.

    Yes, I am still using 1.7.10 because 1.8.x sucks as it has no metadata support and they changed the rules on name visible in 1.8 clients which break a lot of stuff unless you use a hologram for npc.
