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.

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

    @Eria8: Go

    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.

    Even when I edit and save it with the server off, it still resets every time the server starts back up again...

    All you need to do is setup the plugin from in game using the commands.

    @MrJellycakeGaming: Go

    Save the config before you restart or edit while the server is off

    When I delete the default announcements and add a new one and restart the server, the default ones appear again and the ones I made are gone. How can I change this?

    Hey i have a list of some variables that if you could consider adding :D

    [Online] Gives the current amount of players online [Money] Gives your current balance [Health] Current health (example: Your health is currently at 15 and half hearts [Hunger] Current Hunger (Example: same as the health one)

    Thanks for ready but if you were going to add any of these could you do the online one first?
