    Current release: 1.1 (477)

    Old versions 1.01 | 1.0

    There were some requests for a simple plugin for coloured nicknames, so here it is!


    - Allows users to set their nickname colour.
    - Stores the colour values for your players to an SQLite database.
    - Ops can set colours of other players.
    - Optionally disallow double colours.
    - Optionally disallow players to set colours (only ops).

    - Download SimpleColours at the top of this page.
    - Create a folder called 'lib' in your craftbukkit directory (so it looks like this) and put this file in it (this is the database driver).
    - Copy the JAR to the plugins directory of your Bukkit server software.
    - And you're done!

    After you start the server it will generate a settings file called SimpleColours.yml

    /colour help - Shows all available colours
    /colour <colourname> - Sets the colour of your name
    /colour reset - Resets the colour of your name to white
    Ops only:
    /colour <player> <colourname> - Sets the colour of a player's name
    /colour <player> reset - Resets the colour of a player's name to white
    SimpleColours.yml can be found in your plugins/SimpleColours directory:
    allow-doubles - whether double colours are allowed (if set to false, this only allows 16 coloured nicknames on the server!)
    users-can-change - whether users can change their name colour
    Known bugs:
    - None yet! :D

    To do:
    - Permissions support


    03/03/11: v1.1 (477)
    • Updated for latest craftbukkit
    • Made the help description of commands a bit less confusing
    26/01/11: v1.01
    Nothing new, fixed dependency for SQLite. No need to patch if it is working for you.

    23/01/11: v1.0

    Ah ok, I think that should be implemented in some kind of group modification, where you can set permissions to set a rank for yourself or a group or whatever. It's a nice idea, but it should probably get its own plugin.

    Permissions support, and you've got a deal! :D

    Why do that when Permissions has it's own plugin called iChat that does this?

    So my admins can quickly change individual user's colours on the fly. :)

    When I start up my server I get a really long error when I include this plugin, it doesn't seem to work either.
    Am I missing something?
    I attached the error message in a text file.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I didnt have the SQLite dependency file. It's working now.

    Attached Files:

    Sry, forgot to mention that:

    - Get the new version of SimpleColours here
    - Create a folder called 'lib' in your craftbukkit directory (so it looks like this) and put this file in it (this is the database driver).

    I also had to rename the file from 'sqlitejdbc-v056.jar' to 'sqlite.jar'.
    It wouldn't work for me untill I renamed it.

    EDIT: Whoops, I see it works with the original filename in v1.01. My bad.
    Thanks for the plugin!

    "This server isn't recent enough to support /colours"

    Er, whenever I restart my server the peoples colors do not stay... Why is this?

    I havent restarted my server yet, but theres no entries in the database for the players i've set colors on, so they probably will disappear (also kinda annoying not knowing if color has been set for a user when you do a /colour user)
