    ScheduledAnnouncer [Version 1.8.1]

    Scheduled Announcer is a very simple tool, which only does what's its name told us. It automatically sends a broadcast out of a list controlled by a schedule.


    • Sends Scheduled Broadcast to all Players
    • Easy to configure by 'config.yml' or ingame with the '/announce' command.
    • Supports colors (&1, &2... &9, &a, &b... &f) and newlines with &n.
    • Supports executing commands inside Announcements. (Like "Now it will get day!&n/time day")
    • Supports newest Bukkit permissions system!

    How To Setup (open)

    1. Download the latest Release
    2. Drag&Drop the JAR file to your 'plugin/' directory
    3. Restart or reload your server

    There's a video tutorial on how to setup and configure that plugin on YouTube too. Thanks to BrandonHopkins!

    Configuration (open)
    # ScheduledAnnouncer Configuration File
    # =====================================
    # Don't use tabs in *.yml file!
        # Use this flag to temporary disable the announcements.
        # enabled: false, means that there wouldn't be any announcements.
        enabled: true
        # Set this to true will announce in random order.
        # 'false' will announce in sequential (one after another) order.
        random: false
        # Defines the prefix for the announcement. Use & + hex char 
        # for color codes.
        prefix: '&c[Announcement] '
        # The time of one interval in seconds.
        interval: 100
        # List of messages to announce. You could use color codes by
        # using & + hex chars too. &n will produce a new line.
        - 'This is the first default announcement!'
        - 'Use /announce help to get info how to config this plugin.'
        - 'You can also configure this plugin with its config.yml too!'

    Is there permissions for who it pop up for?

    Of course! As you can read in the head post, you have to set the "sendToAll" flag in config.yml to "false" and add the "announcer.receiver" permission to the user, which should receive the announcements!

    Tested with CB689 and Minecraft 1.5_01 and it works! :)

    Is it possible to make it so it also does commands like setting off weather etc.... I have a weather changing plugin and I have the announcer randomly choose a weather pattern and announce it every morning but also having it auto change the weather at the same time would be sick.

    In the current version not, but I will try to implement it!

    Excuse me, that it takes so long, but I am developing another Minecraft plugin currently.
    I uploaded a new Version (1.5). It now supports to execute a command like "/time day" when it's the announcement text. You could also combine that with the NewLine function "&n"!

    For example if you add an announcement like that:
    Now it will get day!&n/time day
    It will get day, when this gets announce!

    I hope I have added the feature you wanted to?

    @MiHo I have a suggestion, could you make it so that only certain groups (permissions) receive certain broadcasts? I advertise VIP/donator on my server, but I don't want the donators to see that annoying message.
    I also announce server information that everybody should see, so I can't just remove the receiver permission from VIPs

    Just a suggestion ;)

    I will try to implement different kind of priority levels and different kinds of permission levels, if that helps you.

    I have a request :). Can you make this the first announcer which can announce in zones / worlds / on events? Would be great if it could be used with world guard zones, or its own zones. So you only get the announcements when in a specific zone. Think; mall announcements =)

    Hm... would be able to do too, but will me take some to implement that!
  13. Offline


    Can you PLEASE list the color names!!! Can you also list where you got them from, or not if you made em up.

    can you make it to where it sends the message to the player when the've logged on once, because I want to get a message out to everyone, but without constantly notifying them and without having the possibility of them not getting the message.
    If you could add that this would be 10x better, I'm still gonna get it though, so thanks ;D

    For some reason the '/announce' commands aren't working. It just says Unknown Command.
    The plugin is in my /plugins/ folder in my server

    Edit: Seems like the .jar isn't even loading with the server. Its not on my /plugins list and it is in the right folder with the /scheduledannouncer config folder.

    Can you add pagination to the announce list? I have a lot of announcements and they aren't showing up for me.

    Of Course, will be in next Release!

    Valid colors are:

    Does the problem already exist? Tried you restarting the server, and give it a second chance to recognize the plugin?

    Problem is not traceable for me.

    What operatings system and bukkit version are you using?

    I was wondering, are you able to make a broadcast pop up when somebody says a phrase? (and a different broadcast for each phrase)?
    That would be amazing! I don't know if that's the direction you want this to go in though, so I'm fine if you don't wanna do it.

    Of course this would be makeable, but that's not the idea behinde the plugin. Probably you could post the idea in "Bukkit Plugin Request" forum.

    Your problem is the ' - char inside the messages. Don't use them inside the messages, YAML can't handle them.
    So don't write "don't know" write "do not know" and it will work! (hopefully...)
  31. thanks so much. i really just wanted a simple Tip announcer so the people who are new can get some good basic tips. great mod! thanks again
