    Latest Version: v1.2 (Bukkit 1.2.4)
    Please use BukkitDev for bug reporting and support!


    motd is a lightweight MOTD and basic command plugin for your minecraft server.
    There are lots of 'basic commands' plugins around here, but most of them have lots of features you will never need - or they do not allow you to deactivate them easily. They often cause lag and make configuring your server a pain in the *** because there is no documentation.

    With motd I made a simple, yet powerful plugin for creating advanced, custom colored and formatted MOTDs, who lists and rules. If you do not have the time to always be around on your server, rtp and vtime can help you. Even if you decide to install permissions on your server, motd is ready for that change.

    Here's a small overview of what you can do with motd:

    Customizable MOTD (text and color)
    You can enable/disable each command by editing a config file

    • who
    • rtp [playername / yes]
    • vtime [dawn / day / evening / night]
    • ip
    • motd
    • rules
    The plugin provides several features for your minecraft server. The first one you will notice, is whenever a player joins the game he will be greeted and shown other online players.

    To bring up the online players list again type:

    To bring up the MOTD again type:

    To bring up the rules type:



    The plugin is generally designed for servers where an admin is not online all the time. Therefore I have implemented the following two commands:

    vtime is a time vote system. Everyone can start a vote to change the time. You can vote for dawn, day, evening and night. To vote for a time change just use the argument yes. If not at least half of the online players voted yes within 60 seconds, the vote expires.

    rtp creates a teleport request to another player. The other player has to type in /rtp yes to teleport the player. There can only be one request to one player at a time.


    ip shows the ip of the player using the command.

    Please read the manual for further information on using and configuring motd.

    Zweizeichen, I have been a user of your simple mod on our server since the Beta 1.73 days and Like its simple functionality very much. I do have two requests that would make it perfect though:

    First, update the permissions section to be compatible with SuperPerms and its derivative plugins

    and Second, support & codes for color to make it compatible with Rei's Minimap radar function.

    Thanks for your time.

    Interesting. Looks like I'll have to do some bug fixing. Do older versions of bukkit work?

    Version 1.2_BETA1

    I rewrote entire permission system. It is based on superPerms now. Enjoy!
    • dropped group prefix/suffix support
    • dropped support for legacy permission systems
    • renamed modules
    • fixed vTime calculation
    • Ops are now handled like regular players by the permission system
    • started multiworld support for vTime
    Have fun and good luck,

    is there a <group> variable? if not i would love to see one in your next update!
  8. Offline


    Yeah due to the large amount of different permission systems based on superPerms I first got sure to support permissions again. The group support is the next step in that part of motd.

    The Plugin didn´t work with "General", if a player has no tp permissions from General but the motd permissions, the player get the error "you have not the permission". With General TP-Permissions motd will be ignored.

    Cb 1.2.5 (dev build)
