    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)

    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!

    For me the command /color help is working.
    Make sure to use enough spaces, but not to many!
    Try it pls to enter in the console and see if it works.

    Hey, I love this plugin, but how do I make it show the colored names above your head? it works for chat, but not above you. I have spout installed, but I haven't done anything with it. I don't care about using Spout, I just want to use your mod and have the colors above my head.. so can you help me out please? :)
  6. Offline


    Sorry, I didn't mentioned it.
    But you need the server side plugin Spout and as a client Spoutcraft, too!

  13. Offline


    Got a few problems with this.
    The name colour and prefix doesn't change until after the person has said something in chat.
    how do i do coloured prefixes?
  14. Offline


    Please make colour for groups, that would be amazing.
    Eg: All new players who join can automatically get a green prefix.
    If this is already possible, please tell me :)
  15. Offline


    I can add italic and bold and strikethrough but only to colors not to prefixs/suffixs and i trying with &o,&l and &n but doesn't work D: help
  16. Do u need spoutcraft for this?
  17. Offline


    xGhOsTkiLLeRx I have used this plugin several times. Its very nice! Keep up the great work.
  18. Offline


    No, it's optional, if you use it and the server uses Spout, too, you can see the player titles above their head colored.

    I'll add support for it in the next release.

    Use the global default prefix for it (config.yml)
    And groups/custom colors is coming, too...

    Use the color chars: & (look at /color list for all)

    Thx for the feedback :)

    Would "PermsBukkit" work?
  22. Offline


    Colored Prefixes/Suffixes Please!!
  23. Offline


    Of course. Any plugin with support for the bukkit permissions will work :)

    Learn to read please!!

    For example a colored prefix in the color red

    /prefix me &c[Admin]

    The same works for suffixes.
    For a color list use /color list

    i have a question, obviously^^

    is there a possibility to color the nicks above your head? cause im usin a pvptoggle plugin so id like to set the nicks of nopvp players for ex. green and pvp players red so that u can recognize them at one glance... if there isnt... maybe somebody want to write a plugin like this? xD

    id be sooo grateful, this would make things way much more easier :) for - as i think - quite a lot of us admins ;)

    It's supported by ColorMe if you use Spout and Spoutcraft.

    Otherwise there are 2 ways.
    Modify craftbukkit (against Terms of Service)

    Or to do it with a plugin.
    Second variant: loosing of the skin. :(

    Thanks but I can read -.-

    I didn't see it you didn't have to be a douche and call me out like that, thanks.

    Is Bold,italic,underline and strikethrought working NOW? :I
  28. Offline


    Nope. I haven't released an update yet.
    I have to fix the extreme lag again.
    If you can't wait for a version.

    Bold, italic, underline, strikethrough are supported already.
    No support for this version.

    WOAH! Thanks man! Ill try it RIGHT NOW :p Ur awesome!

    ok, thank u ... ill consider using spout, we ll see ;)
  31. Offline


    I know I'm awesome

    I can color the name above your head, but you would loose your skin.
    (No spout or spoutcraft would be needed)
