    What I want:

    The built-in bukkit chat logs are great and all, but can be very hard to read when people have nicknames or colours.
    Here's an example of what it looks like in reatime (nice and clean):

    Here's an example of what it looks like in the chat log (exact same little conversation):

    (and it gets much worse when there's 5+ people talking and messaging and using commands all at once.)

    See the difference?

    I'm looking for a plugin that makes nice clean chat logs (including commands and everything the normal ones have) but in a nice clean format either with working colour codes, or none at all.

    Stores them the same way as normal logs (unless you can think of a better way) so the most recent log is unzipped, and every 24 hours or when the server restarts it saves the latest log as a gzip (or whatever).
    Perhaps saved as a .txt file so I can transfer over to my own pc and open in notepad++ for easier searching.

    I searched for a plugin like this and found 2, one of which was outdated and didn't neaten the files, the other didn't save chat logs older than an hour.


    Ideas for commands: No commands needed for this plugin, purely accessible via console.

    When I'd like it by: whenever.
