    ColorMe - Add color to player names
    Version: v3.8.1

    <font color="#ff0000">BukkitDev: Click!</font>


    This plugin aims to modify the chat with colors, prefixes and suffixes.
    You can set the color/prefix/suffix for individual players or create groups and add players to them.
    There are several supported third-party plugins and other supported things like Spout or an economy system.

    It's a rebirth of ColorMe and Prefixer from @Valrix
    I'm happy to hear about your opinion, just leave a comment with a feature request, bug, improvement or just a personal opinion.

    As a reminder I want to say that I worked very long on this and really appreciate a 'thank you' in form of a donation! (See details on the bottom)

    Maybe your question is already answered!
    Take a look at the FAQ
    If you still got problems, create a ticket!


    See the config (fully commented) here: Click

    Commands & Permissions

    Only the bukkit permissions are supported! I highly recommend that you use a plugin for permissions like bPermissions!
    If no permission system is found, all commands are for OPs only!
    If you want to use ECONOMY, please use Vault!

    Weird. Looks well. Check maybe for Tabs and replace them with 4 spaces.
    Try to run only ColorMe and make yourself an OP. If it works, an other plugin is conflicting.
    No, ColorMe does only color your name and not your message!

    u mean in add my nickname to OP.txt ?
    problems began with the installation of a plug-in can not remember the name. but remember that it was a plug-in for a chat. disappeared after installing the private area, and lots of bad things happened. but after removing all returned to their seats except for your plugin

    i think u right about ops.txt i just try to use /stop but server says Hey contact to server admin to perform this command=)))

    Yes it's Ops.txt thanks a lot ! =)
    p.s. Еt would be nice if the messages were also colored

    My inbox gets spammed with messages!


    You don't need a plugin, minecraft can handle it!

    If you want a yellow message you would have to type:
    §emy message
    And so on!

    What i have to type for the color with the random symbols, that is in the credits sometimes? i don't really know. is it a joke or something? or can i use that?
  7. Offline


    when is the update with /prefix and /suffix come? [pig]
  8. Offline


    Don't know how this is done.
    You can use /color me random
    For random characters of your name each time you chat

    Will need some time, but the basic structure is done.

    I really need the suffixs/prefixs [zombie] but well, good plugin btw :) [gold]

    In the new version this feature will be supported, because bukkit does support the ChatColor.MAGIC (random characters -> but without color!)


    Dev screenshot.
    Release: When it's done. (Should be soon!)

    i don't mean random colors. i mean that one


    and YES i'm using the old version xDDD
  12. Offline


    This is what I meant.
    I support random colors for characters. => color is RANDOM
    And this super new super strange color from the credits. => color is MAGIC
    the new magic color is supported by bukkit since 1.1 -> I can use it :D

    I NEEEED to know, can you make colored suffixes and prefixes? If not, please make that as a ToDo. Thanks!
  25. Offline


    /color list gives a hint! :)
    Just use &e or &random
    or even &rainbow.
    To get back to white use &f

    For example:

    world: &random[Admin]

    Would display the prefix in the world "world": [Admin] in random colors.

    I'll post an update for the issue how to use the API again.
    Due to implementation of Prefixer and Suffixer and multi-world support, it broke the API.
    Even if I hadn't moved the method. It requires now more information.

    I commented on this issue. If phaed420 won't add the API back (as he mentioned at one point) I can't do much about it.
