ChatColor allows players to change the color and style of their chat to many different things! All the Minecraft colors and modifiers supported!


  • Change the color of yours or another player's chat to a huge variety of options.
  • Choose exactly what you want to use, and type one single command to use it.
  • This plugin supports all the Minecraft colors as well as the modifiers, giving a wide range of customisation.
  • Choose up to four different modifiers for your color.
  • Use the new color selection GUI to change your color with ease!
  • Rainbow chat color allows you to have a color pattern for your messages!
  • Not only that, but you can change the colors in the pattern to whatever you like.
  • Now also supporting console commands - have a donor purchase? Why not add a chat color? :)
  • Useful help commands to sort out any problems you might run in to.
  • Easy to use permissions to restrict specific colors and modifiers, or allow all of them with wildcard permissions.
  • A permission for every color and every modifier, as well as every command!
  • This plugin is fully customisable! What does that mean? Well:
    • You can change nearly all of the messages in the plugin in the config!
    • As well as this, change cooldowns, join message, notifications and more.
