    @Binner_Done Doesnt work, from default to this format: '&7{DISPLAYNAME} „Äč&7 {MESSAGE}'

    Do you know how I could fix it ?

    If you want to create a plugin to make this, Add ChatColor.GRAY before the chat event.

    For essentials chat, Instead of using &7, use &8

    @Wagy For EssentialsChat, you need EssentialsChat installed. And you want group formats, you need this section under the "Essentials Chat" section in the config.
      #  Default: '{WORLDNAME} {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&r {MESSAGE}'
      #  Admins: '{WORLDNAME} &c[{GROUP}]&r {DISPLAYNAME}&7:&c {MESSAGE}'
    This is the default part of the config, you MUST specify the group name as it is in the config of your permissions plugin. This does work for ALL permissions plugins
    Although I use my own plugin for chat formatting, I still know how to do this. So for example, my Owner rank is "FirecraftTeam" and of course Admin is "Admin" and so on, so an example config might be...
        Member: '{DISPLAYNAME}&7:&f {MESSAGE}'
        Helper: '{DISPLAYNAME}&7:&c {MESSAGE}'
        Mod: '{DISPLAYNAME}&7:&c {MESSAGE}'
        Admin: '{DISPLAYNAME}&7:&c {MESSAGE}'
        FirecraftTeam: '{DISPLAYNAME}&7:&c {MESSAGE}'
    If you need a list of variables here is a link.

    But going with what @ObviousEmeralds said, if you want to make a plugin, it's simple.

    public void onChat(AsyncPlayerChatEvent evt) {
    Player player = evt.getPlayer();
    if (player.hasPermission("chatcolor.gray")) {
        evt.setFormat("<%s>" + ChatColor.GRAY + "%s");
    This isn't tested, but anyone with the permission chatcolor.gray should have gray chat.
