Not Dead - There are just no new features to add

Please suggest?

Takes effect when version 4.0.0 is released

All configs must be deleted and recreated


For multiline MOTD's you must add spaces imbetween lines in the config.

Theres 26 characters in a line, if your MOTD is "Hi! Im Bob!" that would make 11 characters so youd need to add 15 spaces after the last "!".


ColorMOTD is a plugin that allows server admins to customize amazing features with the MOTD and server image.


/MOTD SetMotd <motd goes here with some cool &4color codes>

: Sets the MOTD for returning players.

/MOTD SetNewMotd <motd goes here with some cool &bcolor codes>

: Sets the MOTD for new players.

/MOTD SetMaxPlayers #

: Sets the max players that is shown to the player (doesnt actually set the max allowed to join)

/MOTD SetImage <link goes here>

: Sets the Server Image if Faces is off in the config, For more information on this goto SetImage

/MOTD facetoggle

: Toggles faces

/MOTD setjoinmotd

: Set the MOTD that is sent to the player when they join

/MOTD setfirstjoinmotd

: Set the MOTD that is sent to the player when they first join

/MOTD togglejoinglobal

: Toggles weather or not to use global or individual MOTDs when joining

/MOTD toggleglobal

: Toggles weather or not to use global or individual MOTDs in the server list

/MOTD setglobaljoin

: Set the global join message

/MOTD setglobalmotd

: Set global server MOTD



When setting a Server Image you can take any image you want off the internet and put it in, the plugin will resize it automatically to fit the required 64x64 pixel size.


The faces option in the config makes it so when a player clicks Multiplayer, or clicks refresh in the server list, their face will appear as the Server image, with a mask * Version 4.0.0 Now requires mask to be on.



MOTD: '&4&lWelcome to Google, &b&l%player% '
NewPlayerMOTD: '&b&lYou havent joined! Join us!'
MaxPlayers: 1
Faces: false
AutoUpdate: true
127,0,0,1: Andrewcpu

MOTD : The MOTD for returning players

NewPlayerMOTD : MOTD for new players

MaxPlayers : sets the displayed amount of players to be allowed on

AutoUpdate : Automatically download updates when available Note Defaulted to true

Faces : If set to true, a server image will be neglected and the players face will appear there

Note Player information is also stored in the config such as which IP matches which player.


Theres only one simple permission: motd.use

    You should add a command for /motd reload that reloads the config so you don't have to restart or reload your server every time you want to see your new MOTD, some people can't fit their MOTD into the chat. Also UPDATE TO 1.8. There are new features to add, so don't say that there isn't.

    Try to go into server.propeties and where it says motd: make sure it's empty.

    You've probably configured it incorrectly.

    If you post a pastebin of your config WITH PLAYER IPs REMOVED (for privacy reasons) then I'll help you. If you don't know what I'm talking about, then PM me, I'll fix it, then comment here on what I did for everyone else to know.

    Once I modify my config to my liking, I stop and start my server, then the config gets completely removed and everything reverts back to it's original state. I'm getting sick of seeing 'Welcome back m8, CrazemeisterYT' whenever I login :/

    @monkeyboystein: Go

    Alright thanks! I honestly need a pure system motd plugin, no faces, no first join motd, no in-game motd, just one motd the server will have in the server list. Hope it's added soon :3
