Announcer [v1.5]

Announcer is a very simple plugin, 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' or '/acc' command.
  • Supports chat colors and newlines with &n.
  • Supports executing commands inside Announcements. (Like "Now it will turn day!&n/time day")

This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to A unique identifier The server's version of Java Whether the server is in offline or online mode The plugin's version The server's version The OS version/name and architecture The core count for the CPU The number of players online The Metrics version Opting out of this service can be done by editing plugins/Plugin Metrics/config.yml and changing opt-out to true.

It also uses a updating system to check for updates. This is recommended so you can stay up to date with the plugin but is optional. In the config you can disable the auto update and check feature.

    Wherever you want to make a new line, add \n, so you could do:

    Hello this is EnderCraft bla bla bla \n sausages are nice

    and that would come out as:

    Hello this is EnderCraft bla bla bla sausages are nice

    There is a bug where the announcement goes to the next line half way through a word O_O so like it will say:

    Hello this is EnderCraft bla bla bla saus ages are nice

    How can I fix this?

    Is there a way for a player to turn off these announcements? I get several complaints from regular players that the announcements annoy them.

    In 1.5, the '&n' variable adds the prefix to the newline, is there a way to stop this or is it a bug? I've used the newline function in other plugins so URL's don't get cut in half and they look good, but adding the prefix when I do a newline clearly doesn't.

    I can't use ':' either, otherwise the config just resets itself.

    I am probably going to rebuild this so there is a plugin system for the plugin. So i can add feature that certain people request as a separate dependency and that way people can customize the core of the plugin!

    Maybe a cool idea to add a feature which lets you announce an announcement after x amount of chat messages?

    You're sure you're stopping the server, editing the file, saving the file, starting the server?

    What exactly is happening? Is it still broadcasting the default messages in your server? If that is happening despite the fact that you have written other messages in your config it means you've made an error somewhere.

    Make sure all your messages are formatted correctly, starting and ending with a ' and make sure there are no ' inside the message.
