    ColorMe has officially been passed on to another dev, you can see it by clicking this link.

    ColorMe - Color player names:
    Version: 2.4.1

    This is the "sister" plugin of Prefixer that I made a little while back. With this you use the /colorme (or /color, now written as /color[me]) command to add a color to a player's name. Very simple and extremely light-weight.

    COMMANDS (open)
    /color[me] list - Lists colors in the color that they will look like
    /color[me] <name> <color> - Set color of player's name if defined, otherwise set your name's color
    /color[me] <name> - Resets the player back to no color (white)
    HOOKS (open)
    This is only useful for other devs who want to hook into ColorMe.
    • getColor(name) - "name" is a string. Used to get player's color.
    • setColor(name) - Same as above, except used to set the player's color.
    • hasColor(name) - Returns true or false depending on if they have a color set.
    • removeColor(name) - Removes player's name color
    This shall be explained from the perspective of an Eclipse environment.
    1. Add ColorMe to Java Build Path.
    2. Add this import in the main class and each class that'll need to call the hooks:
      import com.sparkedia.valrix.ColorMe.ColorMe;
    3. Create a public variable of ColorMe (if it'll be used in multiple classes), for example:
      public ColorMe colorme;
    4. In you onEnable() add in this:
      Plugin test = this.getServer().getPluginManager().getPlugin("ColorMe");
                          colorme = ((ColorMe)test);
      (Note, it's very similar to hooking into Permissions
    5. Done! Now you can get a player's color by doing colorme.getColor(e.getPlayer());
    colorme.list - Allows player to use /color[me] listto see color list

    colorme.self - Allows player to set own prefix
    colorme.other - Allows player to set another player's prefix
    colorme.remove - Allows player to remove another player's prefix

    * All players can remove their own prefix regardless of permissions *
    FAQ (open)

    Q. Why doesn't ColorMe work with iChat?
    A. It does, Drakia even tested it himself. In your iChat config change +name to +displayname and, as he said it, "BAM, it works."

    • Add colors to a player's name in chat
    • Bukkit Permissions support
    • iConomy support (other economy plugins are being added)
    • Get/Set/Remove colors from command-line
    • Players are notified if their name color is changed and the new color

    Latest Changes: v2.4.1

    • Only OPs can change another player's name, even if non-OP is set so players can't run around changing each other's names.

    Version 1.1
    • Fixed code to work with new command handler
    • Updated code to fix the "Too many open files" bug

    can you make color to signs?
  6. Offline


    Yet another Prefixer plugin? Again, HeroChat and Permissions.
  7. Offline


    Permissions do not give color to names and prefix, iChat does it.
    HeroChat can argue with other plugins.
    And If oyu only want to have a plugin that gives color to names, use ColorMe, it is SIMPLE.
    No permissions needed, only OPs who can change the color on the names, same with Prefixer.
    But ColorMe and Prefixer dont argue with other plugins, I have tested it.

    You got SignEdit, easy to use and understand

    This plugin does not work !
    It says " internal error occured !

    I can see the color list but not change...
  9. Offline


    I used simplecolours before the minecraft update and it worked good, but its out of date :(. Glad to see you made one. I'll download this soon.
  10. Offline


    Is it just in chat or is it overhead ingame as well? If it is, or is ever implemented, I'm using this instead of nChat/iChat
  11. Offline


    It's not working for me. I simply drop the jar file in my plugins folder, correct? It loads up correctly, however when I type any of the commands, nothing happens.
  12. Offline


    Any chance you could make a config for it so I can let players color their own names?
  13. Offline


    I like SignColors more.
  14. Offline


    It's a good idea, but I get "incorrect usage of command" on everything I do.
    Not sure why, it may be because I'm running my server through mcmyadmin, but that's unlikely.

    Good work I'm sure,

    Try to use build 440
  16. Offline


    Great plugin Valrix. :) I get an internal error when I just type /color, but everything else works wonderfully.
  17. Offline


    works fine with 440+. Fix /color (ik its not a valid command) it poops out network errors for some reason. Also make /color blue (for example) automatically changes the user who typed it to that color.
  18. Offline


    Yeah, I'm still gonna work on this. I was thinking of changing it to where the color is first so that if no name is given then it would color the user who gave the command and adding a config option that would be OP=false then everyone can use the command.

    Also, for those who can't get it working, I recommend using the "Recommended Build" since it helps keep stuff from breaking. 440+ is best since that seems to work for most of the plugins currently running. I can't remember why you'd get an "internal error occurred", but my best solution would be to make sure you have a build that is 440 or higher. Using any other builds besides any of the recommended builds is advised against because those have a very high chance of breaking any/all of your plugins and there's nothing I can do about it.

    PROTIP: If you want help or want to suggest something to me or alert me of a bug, my Twitter is probably one of the fastest ways since I'm connected to the net for 90% of my waking hours every day (no seriously, I'm on my computer ALL DAY). The only thing that would slow down the time to respond is if I'm in class, sleeping, or in the shower (yes, I have no life....)

    Glad that you like it! Just make sure you're running a good build and that should fix the problem. I make sure to test every plugin against the RB every time they release a new one if not the "Bleeding Edge" build every time they update the repo. I try to stay on top of the game the best I can, but when they push out updates so fast and real life comes knocking I get set back and have to work double-time to get everything fixed and such. Especially when they just changed up how you can manage commands, which I still need to work on porting over so I can get my plugins running smoother. Anyway, enjoy!
    --- merged: Mar 2, 2011 5:40 PM ---
    Yes, I mentioned this above. I'm going to make a single config option that will be made when the plugin first runs with the value "OP=true" that you can just go change to false and reload the plugin to make it take effect (though personally I always say it's best to do a restart, but that's just because I'm finicky about a very fresh testing environment). Also, once permissions are native instead of relying on a plugin I will be adding support to nearly all if not every one of my plugins to make sure it can be used exactly how everyone wants it.

    As of right now overhead names are handled by the client so we don't have a way of changing it. But if and when there is a way to change it then I will make it a config option to also have it change the color of their overhead name. Thanks for the suggestion by the way!
    --- merged: Mar 2, 2011 5:48 PM ---
    You sure like to whine a lot...besides Permissions is too big and breaks too often and shouldn't be used if you want ONLY to color names. That would be too much overhead resource usage to do something so simple. This is a way to give players a colored name easily and without the need for other plugins, etc. as well as being small and taking up the least amount of space possible. I also ask you to stop posting in my plugin threads if all you're going to do is complain about how there are other plugins that do the same thing because I couldn't really care less. If I feel like making a plugin, I'm going to make it.

    its whats needed

    New problem, having a color set doesn't allow nicknames in essentials.
  21. Offline


    cheeky feature request .... optional player can set own color ? :p
  22. Offline


    I can't help that other plugins may break mine. Essentials and Permissions both break a lot of other plugins and break down a lot on their own. I make sure my plugins play nice, but if their's doesn't, I can't help with that.
    --- merged: Mar 3, 2011 12:13 AM ---
    How do you mean? Like make a config option for anyone to be able to set their own color? If that's what you mean then I already said that I'd do that above.
  23. Offline


    Now it doesn't seem to work at all. I updated to the latest and now it won't work period.

    *EDIT: I have tried with craftbukkit 493 and there was no success. Could you build it down with the stable snapshots so that I don't have to break all my other plugins to make yours work?
  24. Offline


    The thing is that at around 449 the way commands are handled has changed and for some reason 440 broke as well so I had to update to the newest recommended build to just get it working. I don't know why you'd have any problems because I got it to work just fine. I'll build it again and make sure the newest build gets into my dropbox. Also make sure you're using it the way it's supposed to be used now since I changed how the commands are handled to make the command smaller. I'll update the JAR now, shouldn't take more than a few minutes.

    Hi Valrix, nice simple plugin !

    Can i please somehow make an alias for /color cmnd, or change this cmnd (like /colour) ?

    I have /color in another plugin (for colorize wool,etc.)

    Much thanks.
  26. Offline


    Can you also change the color the console has? I don't like the purple/pink text of the console.
  27. Offline


    I have essentials and that has a nickname command but when i use color me it replaces the nick names is it possible to fix this
  28. Offline


    Hmm, I was worried that /color would be taken. I think I'll have to change it to /colorme to make sure it doesn't mess with others.
    --- merged: Mar 6, 2011 8:56 PM ---
    I'll fix that.
  29. Offline


    Okey Valrix, nvm .. i just made alias in PlgEssentials, where the /color cmnd was .. i simply changed to /c ^^ thanks.

    How is it possible that some servers I go to have the actual nametag (name above your guy's head) colored?
