Nameplate(API) is not just a tool for server owners. What NameTag does is 2 things.

The /nametag command, uses the 0-9 and a-f colours. There is also a "reset" /nametag reset (player).

Server Owners

  • Have the ability to set a players name tag colour.
  • Allow other plugins to set a players name tag. (Username / Username with Colour / Colour)

Commands for Server Owners

  • To set your own nametag, you need the nametag.use permission. Command; " /nametag t [tag] "
  • To set another players nametag, you need the nametag.use.others permission. Command; " /nametag t [tag] [player] "
  • To set your own nametag colour, you need the nametag.use permission. Command; " /nametag c [a-f/0-9] "
  • To set another players nametag colour, you need the nametag.use.others permission. Command; " /nametag c [a-f/0-9] [player] "


  • Easy to use an API which does all the packeting business for you.

How to use Nameplate (Server Owners)

  • Install the plugin.
  • If you wish, players with the "nametag.use" permission, can set their/other peoples name tag.
  • If you want to give groups/players certain nametags. Give them the permission of "nametag.colour.[code]". But don't give them "nametag.use".

How to use NameplateAPI (Developers)

  • Add the plugin as a soft dependancy.
  • Look in the GitHub repo for more info on how to use it.
