    ColorMe - Add color to player names
    Version: v3.8.1

    <font color="#ff0000">BukkitDev: Click!</font>


    This plugin aims to modify the chat with colors, prefixes and suffixes.
    You can set the color/prefix/suffix for individual players or create groups and add players to them.
    There are several supported third-party plugins and other supported things like Spout or an economy system.

    It's a rebirth of ColorMe and Prefixer from @Valrix
    I'm happy to hear about your opinion, just leave a comment with a feature request, bug, improvement or just a personal opinion.

    As a reminder I want to say that I worked very long on this and really appreciate a 'thank you' in form of a donation! (See details on the bottom)

    Maybe your question is already answered!
    Take a look at the FAQ
    If you still got problems, create a ticket!


    See the config (fully commented) here: Click

    Commands & Permissions

    Only the bukkit permissions are supported! I highly recommend that you use a plugin for permissions like bPermissions!
    If no permission system is found, all commands are for OPs only!
    If you want to use ECONOMY, please use Vault!

    There is a thread where you can share your custom colors!

    Love this plugin glad your now coding it. Feature request

    I beg for config to disable rainbow/random :) or permissions required for it. My eyes are bleeding from it with 50 players using rainbow at same time

    feel free to slap me if this is already possible.
  25. Offline


    Will add a possibility to define which colors are valid ;)
    Seems like rainbow is very popular? :p

    Wtf i can't use /colorme color nickname, /color me, /colorme get (you dont have permisions)
    can only use /colorme list adn /color help
    since today! dont understand =(

    also i have just colored nickname not messages
    NO Chat plugins!
    essentials (without essentialsCHAT)
      radius: 0
      # If set to the default chat format which "should" be compatible with ichat.
      format: '<{DISPLAYNAME}> {MESSAGE}'
      #format: '&7[{GROUP}]&f {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&f {MESSAGE}'
      # You can also have group-specific formats, uncomment to enable:
      #  Default: '{WORLDNAME} {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&f {MESSAGE}'
      #  Admins: '{WORLDNAME} &c[{GROUP}]&f {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&c {MESSAGE}'
  29. Good plugin, I want to add the color by groups ... so no I have to manually all players who are in a group.

    A greeting!.

    Strange - the permissions are still the same! (Or for OPs)
    Check your permissions config pls.


    Group colors are on the ToDo ;)
