    Dev Build:
    All Downloads:​

    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.
    Permissions nodes: (open)

      • This is the node that allows people to use (or not use) the "&" or "^" character (or a different one, depending on your configuration) followed by a hexadecimal code.
    • colors.rainbow
      • This is the node that allows people to use (or not use) rainbow mode. (Use with care - can create an eyesore)

    Permissions default to true. This is because if you don't have a permissions plugin installed, users will still be able to use the plugin.

    If you want, you can use this version of the plugin, and it will disable everything by default: http://server.tymcs.tk/plugins/colors/3.0.3b3/Colors_negated.jar

    Can you add some value to config, that if it true, then group prefix overwrite users prefix.
    So if group prefix [Moder], and user prefix [MyPrefix], in chat like [Moder] Username

    Been using this plugin for ages for prefixes and suffixes, but I still have one question that my trollish users refuse to tell me: does the colors applied to your name appear in the tab menu? I don't see it on mine, but that could be because your name seems to be provided in tab by the client (or not). If this is not added I ask that it be and perhaps be configurable true/false for those who do not want to use it.

    Also, inclusion of formatting codes would be excellent, I currently use another color plugin alongside this one simply because it adds every formatting command (&k, &l, &m, &n, &o, %r). Thanks! [gold]

    the latest version adds the formatting codes (rainbow has been moved to &z).

    In response to ypur question, I'm not entirely sure, but it could only happen if chat-formatting is false.

    I'll see what I can do.

    /prefix &z

    Can you post your colors.properties file?

    This plugin sucks balls, it annoys the sh** out of me. There is a bug that you wont fix that makes people talk twice. I installed it perfectly fine and it makes me say my words twice and it annoys the piss out of me. Anyone downloading this? Don't its horrible and annoying until he updates it.
  26. Offline


    I can't fix anything I don't know about. I need some more info.

    I need a plugin list and your colors.properties file.
  27. Offline


    I don't have this problem, it works perfectly for me. Must be another plugin doing that.

    Do you have any speculation on when the next version of Colors will be released and what will be in it?

    Sorry, I've been working pretty slow and have been caught up in a few other things. (First day of school is today :( )
    So I'm not sure when I'll have it done.

    But I can tell you, that it will have improved permissions handling, support for the prefix: and suffix: tags in PEX and bPerms, as well as Titles (Different from prefixes)

    That's so you can have:
    <[Admin] Lord tyzoid the third> Message

    or if you use chat formatting:
    [Admin] Lord tyzoid the third: Message

    [Admin] is the title (unchangable by users by default)
    "Lord" is the prefix
    "tyzoid" is the name

    Hi. I have a had factions for a while and i recently got Colors on my server.
    Whenever someone talked it would appear twice. One with thier Faction name as a prefix and the other was just a plain thing with a name.
    I really want both Plugins. They work fine alone. But together its Double Talk.
    Thanks a bunch!
