    Hey guys, I was wondering if someone could make a plugin that gives you more color code options for Spigot 1.8? But more importantly, I would like it to be able to let people create their own color codes using hex colors. Would that be possible to do?

    @Shadow7396, pretty sure that's impossible. Colors are sent using a JSON formatted string with specific enumerations for color. (In normal people talk, the color is sent as the word red, green, orange, etc. Not hexes. The client wouldn't know what to do with a hex.

    As far as I'm aware, the only hex color code support is in leather armor. Text has 16 available colors, and a few effects like bold (&l), italic (&o), and underline (&n). Remember that you don't have to retype the entire combination sequence to change effects, only colors, meaning something like &2He&oll&no (&2 being green, &o being italic, and &n being underline) would come out like Hello. If you want to change the color, however, you have to retype the effect code sequence.

    @Tecno_Wizard well is it possible at all to add more colors than the ones already programmed into the game in anyway whatsoever??

    Mods (maybe), so you'd need a Cauldron/Sponge/Forge/etc. server. But you definitely can't with normal servers, as plugins are only able to use features already in Minecraft.

    Color Codes are client-side only.
    We can send Hexadecimal Codes to the Client just fine.
    But it would not result in a new Chat Color as the Client would not know how to process that Data.
    So no, this is not possible as itd require a Client Mod.
