Hi I had a cool feature request idea. Limit hex colors by a value(hsv) threshold. Colors below a certain value are often unreadable in chat
In reply to Wooferscoots:
Hi there, sorry for the late reply and thanks for the feature suggestion! I'll take a look at adding this into a future version as an optional setting.
I'm having some issues due to trying to give people the ability to use chat colors. I did chatcolor.* in luckperms and people can't use modifiers still.
i'm not sure if you support the use of chatcolor on a forge based server such as MOHIST but there is an error on that server type:
[22:39:26] [Server thread/INFO] [Mohist]: Enabling ChatColor2 v1.12.3

I just recently started using MHOIST after discovering it not too long ago and am slowly discovering plugins that have errors.
In reply to InuYasha86000:
The reason for this crash is that the server version supplies a non-standard version string. I will be trying to address this in the next update. It may still not work for other reasons but at least this reason can be fixed :)
Is there a way to get rainbow chat???
In reply to oisinverkoyen:
In reply to oisinverkoyen:
Yes! You can use /chatcolor %bright-rainbow as an example :)
Hi, I've been trying to create something along the lines of the rainbow Color pattern but with the modifiers, is there any way to do this or is it simply not possible?, Ive gotten down creating a new custom colour and adding it to the GUI but I simply can't figure out how or if its even possible to get it to work.
EDIT: Ive also found that the bright rainbow doesn't work, it outputs "null" at the beginning of any chat messages and doesn't work.
In reply to xavieraiden:
You can add modifiers to a rainbow custom colour, but you can't make each character have a different modifier, for example.
Hmm.. bright rainbow should work :/ pretty sure I tested it. What version are you using (MC & plugin)?
Hi, I cant figure out how to make a custom rainbow color?
I want it to be these colors #6af8ed#a7fbf3#d6fdf9#ffffff#ffffff#fcfac3#f3f684#e5f237#e5f237#f3f684#fcfac3#ffffff#ffffff#d6fdf9#a7fbf3#6af8ed
I dont want to replace the existing rainbow color, just make a new rainbow sequence.
thanks in advance!
In reply to arcticlightning144:
Heya, please take a look at the example rainbow custom colours in the config files :)
a user of one of my plugins ran into a compatibility issue between this plugin and mine (Shopkeepers): Shopkeepers is a plugin to create shop NPCs. Players have the option to rename their shop NPC. When naming a shop, the Shopkeepers plugin uses the player's next chat input to set the new shopkeeper name. By default, color codes are not allowed to be used in shopkeeper names (but they can be enabled inside the config).
In an attempt to extract the player's raw original chat message, the Shopkeepers plugin listens for the chat event at lowest priority.
However, this plugin seems to inject (at lowest event priority, i.e. very early of the chat processing) a chat color at the beginning of every message sent by players. Depending on the random order in which the Shopkeepers plugin extracts the chat message to apply it as new shopkeeper name, and the ChatColor plugin modifying the chat message to inject this color code, the Shopkeepers plugin might complain about the chat message not being a valid shopkeeper name, due this this additional color code at the beginning.
Would it be possible for you to not use the lowest event priority to modify the chat message? This would give other plugins a chance to read the original, unmodified chat message.
Also, something else to consider for any kind of default chat colors applied to the beginning of chat messages would be to to not actually modify the chat message for those, but inject the color code via the chat format instead. This is probably a cleaner way to implement 'default chat colors', but is probably also more tricky to implement, since you would need to analyze the chat format to figure out where to inject the color code.
In reply to blablubb:
Heya, thanks for the in depth comments.
The listener priority was changed fairly recently as people were having the opposite problem (plugins overriding chatcolor), in the next update it will be configurable. I'm not sure when I'll be releasing that at the moment, though.
For the format stuff, I could take a look into that, but currently 'default' colours just set a player's colour to a default (which gives the current behaviour, also allowing /chatcolor to display the correct 'current' colour). So, I might do this but unless there is some issues being caused by it, it will probably stay as-is for the moment.
In reply to sulphate_osu:
The problem with configuration options is that users first have to run into some issue, report the issue, someone has to remember the config option, and inform them about it. I don't know which other previous incompatibility your event listener priority change has resolved, so I cannot comment on how likely it is for users to run into this other incompatibility, or whether there might be an alternative to resolve it. But our plugins do fairly different things (my plugin even only reads from the chat event, not modifies it). So this incompatibility seems like it should be avoidable by default.
Also, even with this config option added, if you say there is another plugin incompatibility preventing your from changing the event priority by default, then users using this new config option to change the event priority would just reintroduce this other incompatibility. There has to be a better solution..
Hi. How can you use the & command in a command_block like:
/say lol &a [Achievement]
/say &a moang
It would say &a and not with the color lime
How work this?
In reply to the_mystery_guy_lol:
ok i fixed it with a tellraw command
and a generator with that...
In reply to the_mystery_guy_lol:
Yeah, sorry :( this plugin only supports player chat. I might add this as a feature though since it would be fairly simple.
can i use the hex color too in Scorboard,Tablist and Luckperms?
In reply to xAlphaBjarnex:
This plugin only supports the chat, you would need a different plugin to support that :)
I have a problem with this plugin, when I am OP in my server, chatcolors works fine, but when I am no longer op and just an user, it won't work, I typed chatcolor blue and it says "successfully set your color to: this (blue) but when I type whatever and click enter, it shows my default color but not blue
btw I am using essentialsx chat
