    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)

    The prefix?

    The prefix is set using the in-game command. Not the info -> prefix.

    Hi. I'm having problems getting any Name coloring (suffix/prefix renaming, or else) plugin working with a chat plugin (that shows prefix suffix name)... Anyone get anything working where certain permissions groups can have a node that allows them to change the color of their own name only?

    (getting ready to paste a bunch of pastebins with my settings... feel free to message me on skype: [email protected] or here).... (making pastebins)

    permissionsex permissions.yml

    ichat config.yml

    colors groups.list

    colors players.list


    the text output nomatter what looks like: [] name: text

    color not working
    my VIP players msg &5 BLA BLA BLA
    and message in chat is &5 BLA BLA BLA not
  6. Offline


    iChat should be able to do this on its own.
    Once the new update comes out, that will cover pretty much everything that iChat does. (except a few chat formatting options).

    It looks like you are not giving them the correct permissions.
    Please paste your ENTIRE permissions.yml file (on pastebin, of course).

    In your groups.yml, scroll down to the last line.

    Change that to this:
            - vipmcbr

    Did you try moving the everything in the global groups file into the relevant world-specific files? There were bugs with global groups.

    And make sure the default group gets colors.hex

    What is the error you are getting?

    Is the only problem that normal users can't use the hex feature?

    Group Manager Support?
  15. Offline


    It should be working.
    @mrjoeman1200 Not right now. Use the permissions bridge (or a superperms compatable permissions plugin)
  16. Offline


    well, this is a good plugin. BUT, the player prefixes work, group prefixes don't >.<

    if i set a group prefix it just doesnt show up on me...
    but when i set my own player prefix on the other hand i'll see the darned thing just fine

    currently using Craftbukkit [1331] (gonna switch to 1340 in a moment)

    What permissions plugin are you using?
    Group prefixes are working on my server...

    Could you give a more descriptive explanation of what is wrong? What version you are using? What CB build? Other useful details... Etc.
  18. Offline


    Sorry for the late response. These are default groups, sure, but how do I use my own?
    I'm using SuperpermsBridge which should look like Permissions 3.x to your plugin...

    What's The Color Coads?[bedrock]
  20. Offline


    Here's the color codes.
    Yes. While Superperms pretends to be permissions 3.x, It still doesn't support groups.
    This is because the built in permissions manager within bukkit doesn't support groups.

    Unfortunately, there are multiple permissions systems I'd have to support in order to get groups working, and there is no official way to interface with these plugins to get the group. For now you'll just have to use the default groups.

    I will put custom groups on my to-do list for groups separate from a permissions plugin.

    is this superms
  22. Offline


    This is not a permssions manager. It supports permissions given through superperms by plugins such as bPermissions, PermissionsEx, and permissionsbukkit...

    Remember that Colors can't read groups from the aforementioned plugins.
  23. Offline


    But... uh... I have custom groups working fine for other BukkitPerms plugins. >..>
  24. Offline


    Yea. That's because the plugin directly interfaces with BukkitPerms, not through the permissions manager.

    I have yet to figure out how to do this. In the meantime, Problem one (Compatibility with your name-changing plugin) will be solved by an update this weekend. I almost posted it last weekend, but minecraft was down preventing me from testing the code.

  26. Offline


    i'm using permissionsbukkit 1.1 and CB 1363

    and sorry for my late reply :)

    nevermind, i know why the group prefixes ain't working, you don't support permissionsbukkit (yet)
  27. Offline


    you can't as of yet, however it is on my mental to do list.
    It's ok. I haven't been on since last Saturday anyway.

    This current update is taking longer than I expected, mainly due to me not having time to do almost anything (Calc and Physics...), and also because I have just gotten carpal tunnel.

    Anyway, I will hopefully be getting the update out this weekend.

    Will be available in this next update.

    However, you will need to enable chat formatting to utilize it in names.

    any chance of you supporting PermissionsBukkit any time soon? :)

    Yea, but not in this update. Probably in the one after this one.
  31. Does this work with HeroChat?
