Question How do I make Faction tags integrate with the Essentials chat format the way that I want them?

    It's extremely difficult for me to put into words, but I'm bothered by the way that faction tags are displayed in the chat when you type them into the Essentials config.

    For example, I'd like to have the faction names displayed into brackets. Like so,

    "[FactionHere] combatwiz:"

    But whenever a user is not currently in a faction, they would look like,

    "[] combatwiz:"

    For me... I don't see how I would make it so that the brackets appear whenever a user joins a faction. Currently my Essentials chat format looks like,


    If someone could help me out that'd be extremely appreciated. Thanks.
  2. Sadly this is the way how factions works, the only way to fix this is to entirely disable the factionprefix, or let someone make a custom plugin for you that features this.

    I see... well I guess I'll just have to deal with it then :'(

    @CombatWiZ Go to mstore/factions_mconf/instance.json on your server and find this line:

      "chatSetFormatTo": "<{factions_relcolor}§l{factions_roleprefix}§r{factions_relcolor}{factions_name|rp}§f%1$s> %2$s",
    That's the chat format. Two lines above you should find a variable that says chatSetFormat and you should change that to true.

    For me that doesn't happen. Use a older version? I still don't understand what you want. You don't want brackets when someone is not in a faction?

    Yes, to put it simply.

    @CombatWiZ Isn't there a plugin called FactionsChat? I just remembered this
