PlayerChat Logo



When your server has more than 25 players, the chat becomes crowded and overloaded. Need a chat plugin where staff can convene with peace of mind? Or maybe you want players to be able to create their own chat rooms. In any case, PlayerChat is the right chat plugin for you.

Note: This plugin does not support the Mojang update to UUIDs at this time.


  • Incredible Features (see below).
  • Lightweight and easy to use.
  • Useful for staff and players!
  • Most importantly, PlayerChat is consistently being updated.


  • Create, Join, and Leave your own custom channel!
  • You can mute players or be exempt from muting.
  • Fully functional moderator chat.
  • Fully functional admin chat, useful for private or important conversations.
  • Change the chat format of admin chat, mod chat, and each custom channel.
  • Broadcast messages to the whole server.
  • Give nicknames to players.
  • Auto-Updater which can be disabled / enabled through config (Does not harm your server in any way).
  • Spy on other player's chat.
  • And much more!



  1. Download the .jar file of your choice.
  2. Place the .jar file in your /plugins folder.
  3. Restart your server.
  4. You should be good to go! :)


This plugin uses metrics to send stats out to All I do is collect basic information such as online players and version type (Click on the graph to see everything that I can see), but if you wish to opt-out you can go to /plugins/PluginMetrics/config.yml in your server.

    Hi @pookeythekid: Go

    Per-World Chat seems like a good idea. I don't think it would work well for Custom Channels but I can brainstorm and see what I can come up with.

    EssentialsChat is not compatible with the various chat channels (CustomChannels, ModChat, and AdminChat), but your default channel should be unaffected.

    In the config.yml, completely remove your 'Channel-on-Join' setting so when players login they will not be in a chat channel. If they are in a chat channel, they can use /chat leave to enter the normal chat which is untouched by this plugin.

    I think this is a good plugin! But... it's be even better if it had per-world chat! :D

    Lol you don't need to add this, it's just a feature I need for personal usage. But I do have a question: Is this compatible with EssentialsChat?

    Ok. This might be of an inconvenience to you, but please make a report here as I will receive e-mail notifications and it helps me keep me organized (Seems petty but sorry).

    Is there an error log when a player leaves a chat channel?

    Is there any extra steps I should do to reproduce the problem? Any other information that will help me solve this issue?

    @geekyservers: Go

    Has this always been an issue, or has it been only prevalent in v1.3 / v1.3.1?

    Alright, so - was and am, still very excited to use this plugin.

    Unfortunately, I tried it out, chat room creation works great.. but I've found a problem. Once you leave the PlayerChat and go to global, the [Prefix] that was previously assigned by bPermissions gets removed. It takes a full server restart for the original prefix to come back - and yes, I am using the Essentials format and it's getting the [Prefix] via the rank the person has in bPermissions.

    Once this bug is fixed, I'll be uber happy!

    Not yet. I have been hoping to add several features to the chat channels, but i felt that updating to 1.7.2 had precedent.

    <<reply 1873089>>

    Does this plugin allow you to have players auto-join specific channels, and allow yo uto change the chat format for each channel?

    @Light_Ulquiorra: Go

    I believe that in the config, custom channels can be disabled. Otherwise you can remove the permissions from users. For example, if you are using Groupmanager you can do /mangaddp [group] -PlayerChat.user Something like PEX will be /pex group [group] add -PlayerChat.user The "-" negates their access to the permission.
