FactionChat

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.

Features.

  • 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

Development Builds

To-do/possible updates.

  • Create a help command (/fc help)
  • I'm always open to suggestions!

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.

MCStats.

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".

MCStats

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.

    Same problem with that build. I modify messages in english list and no problem. It is a MessageLanguaje option's problem.

    I'll have a look later. but at a first glance it looks like something is wrong with the config.yml

    Could you paste that too?
