    Plugin category: Fun

    Suggested name: Doesn't matter.

    A bit about me: Who cares?

    What I want: Colored Playertags. I've seen it in a server but I can't find it.
    I would also like group support.
    Other than the original white player tag, lets say
    Rank1: f (color codes)
    Rank2: 2
    Rank3: 3
    NOTE: I am NOT talking about prefixes/suffixes, I'm talking about the actual physical in-game tag that is seen above a players head.

    Ideas for commands: None.

    Ideas for permissions: Hmmm, you think of some.

    When I'd like it by: January 21, 2012.

    Similar plugin requests: Don't think any.

    Not possible from what I know? Maybe with Spout but besides that I am pretty sure this isn't possible.

    Saw it on codename_b's Paintball Server.
    Maybe he can elaborate.

    I've been told by a great many people that this is not possible. But from what your telling us, you've seen it without a custom launcher or client mods. If this is true, can you help us codename_B ?

    It's possible, but changing it through a plugin would result in the skin rendering incorrectly due to the color character before the name.

    Would it be possible by some stretch of imagination for player skins & colored nametags to coincide with one-another?

    I think only if people are allowed to use the codes in their name...

    For example, if I made my name &anp98765, then set my skin to whatever I want....

    But Minecraft doesn't let you do that, does it? You can't register an account like that...

    If you've seen it on his server, why don't you directly ask him? Or have you already?

    Well then, I would think that would be a good place to start? :)

    Maybe codename_B could help, or even develop, the plugin. Why wouldn't you ask the master? :p

    Just to clear it up - colored name tags are possible YES.

    HOWEVER...

    There's a few major issues with them.

    #1 any name based plugins eg. /tp name name WILL BREAK
    #2 any name based plugins eg. a permissions plugin WILL BREAK (got a custom bPermissions build for my server which strips out the ChatColor)
    #3 anything based on the player name WILL BREAK

    Other than that, it works a treat :)

    Short answer: no.

    Long answer: impossible without a client mod to interpret the user names, at least stripping out chat colors.
    What happens:

    We wish to change the nameplate of a user "Joe" to "Peter", so we tell the client player "Peter" exists at 0,100,0 and "Joe" is no longer existing and should not be tracked.

    The client then accepts the packet for "Peter" and interprets it. It draws the player model at 0,100,0. The client then contacts the Mojang webservers for the skin for our "Peter" (http://s3.amazonaws.com/MinecraftSkins/Peter.png).

    We do the same for colors. We wish to change Joe's nameplate light red. We tell the client to create "§cJoe", and the same process occurs. http://s3.amazonaws.com/MinecraftSkins/§cJoe.png doesn't have a skin though, so Steve is drawn. Shame.

    Some time ago, me and xGhOsTkiLLeRx worked on this.
    After some weeks of work he got the code for this.

    It was a hard work, but as codename_B said, it is possible without clients mods - however it will break some stuff.

    Can you post this as a plugin or give the download link?
    I would love to use this with my friends.

    Where is this download link? (Mainly for the permissions)
    Sorry to be rude :)

    EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.
