Home Permissions Commands Config

In the most recent versions of the oh so popular Factions (1.7 and above), you may have noticed that the faction chat feature was removed. Faction chat really comes in handy at times to easily talk with whole groups, whether you're planning with your allies to take down that faction you just hate that or discussing top secret plans with your clan. This plugin is there to fill in that gap and bring back this high demand feature, aiming to replicate what has now been removed from Factions.

The author of FactionChat is constantly updating to make sure that FactionChat is designed to work without any bugs and function at top-notch performance out-of-the-box.


  • Faction-only, ally, truce and enemy chat modes
  • Send a message to other factions, even if you're not allies with them
  • Staff chat channels
  • Ability to spy on all messages
  • Easy to use chat-mode toggles/commands

Support and like my work? Donate to keep development going.

I have spent many hours creating and perfecting this plugin for public use, and I expect many more hours still to come through updating and adding features requested by the community. You can even spare a buck or two, after all, every little bit helps! If you are unable to donate, it would still be awesome if you could let me know how the plugin is working for you and leave a thanks in the comments section.

Author debug access.

In the v1.5 update, I have added a new config option called "AllowAuthorDebugAccess". If set to true and your server is running in online-mode, then it allows me, james137137, to use the follow commands: /fchatother, /fc jrmod, /fc mod, /fc srmod, /fc jradmin, /fc admin, /fc spy, /fc update, and /fc reload. Please note that this does not give me the ability to use any other commands. You may never even need to enable this, unless you personally need help and have invited me to test something for/with you. This feature is enabled by default, however it can easily be toggled through the configuration.


This plugin utilizes Hidendra's metrics system in order to keep track of the plugin's popularity, as well as other metadata. The following information is collected and sent to mcstats.org:

  • Unique identifier
  • Java version
  • Offline/online mode
  • FactionChat version
  • Server version (i.e. Bukkit 1.6.4, Spigot 1.7.2)
  • OS name, version and architecture
  • Amount of CPU cores
  • Amount of players online
  • Metrics version

Opting out of this service can be done by editing the config.yml and changing MetricsOptOut to true.

Inbuilt Updater

This plugin utilizes an external version checking system, which means that the plugin makes a connection to curseforge.com and the following may occur:

  • The plugins version checked
  • Downloading of the plugin files

The update can only occur when a player with permission "FactionChat.Update" runs the command "/fc update" or any /FactionChat alias with "update".


FactionChat is a stable plugin that is used by about 1,400 servers worldwide; that's a lot! Thanks to everyone who make this happen.

    Oh. :-)

    well i'm pretty sure there wont be much different from 2.8.0 and 2.8.1 so FactionChat should support it. Assume the latest will support 2.8.x and if it doesn't I'll update it ASAP.

    The UA / Mod Chat/ Admin Chat.... In the past it has been something I've wanted to get rid of. It was for the server I am admin (not owner) with. But we have moved on from using this. (using BungeeCord and a lot of custom plugins)

    When I did removed this I got about 10 PM asking me to put it back so I just did a quick revert.

    Yes, I think I should make these custom chat more customizable in the config but how many types of "channels/Chats" would a typical server need? (the server I'm with once had.... 6) Would it be fair to assume that most servers have 3 groups?

    • A group not quite Moderator but is learning the ropes to become a one
    • A group that moderates the server
    • A group that does the Administration of the server

    Do you think you could make an update which gets rid of all the excess chats, and opts instead for having user-defined chats?

    Right now things like UA chat, donator chat, etc. are things I don't really use because there is no way of customizing them like the regular faction chats (i could change the layout but in the end you still have to do /fc ua to get to the UA chat and it still says "user assistant chat" when changing to it, so it is not really custom). It would be better if you could define your own custom chats in the config file which you can give any name you want and then give out permissions to them as you wish.

    The way I would use this personally is to add a different chat for each different permission group on my server, that way the global chat is not always so cluttered. If this would be too much of a pain to add I understand though. Thanks for keeping this updated ^^

    Any way you can make it so you can remove the players' prefix and nick? I want it to be just the player name so I can use the old factions style.
