FAQFrequently Asked Questions

  • Is this plugin configurable??
    • Yes, of course - take a look at the config help file here.
  • Does the leather armour get spawned in?
    • This is configurable. You can make players wear the armour before it can become rainbow armour, or make them pay a price for enabling it.
  • Can I have Iron/Gold/Diamond armour instead?
    • No, this is because it is impossible to change the colour of any other armour. Although this will be implemented if/when possible.
  • Will players current armour get despawned?
    • As default yes, but adding the permission node rainbowarmour.notify to players will require them to run another command before the armour is enabled, allowing them to remove any existing armour they may have.



This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to mcstats.org:

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version
Opting out of this service can be done by editing plugins/Plugin Metrics/config.yml and changing opt-out to true.


This plugin also uses bStats to collect information. By default, bStats sends the following data:

  • - Your server's randomly generated UUID
  • - The amount of players on your server
  • - The online mode of your server
  • - The bukkit version of your server
  • - The java version of your system (e.g. Java 8)
  • - The name of your OS (e.g. Windows)
  • - The version of your OS
  • - The architecture of your OS (e.g. amd64)
  • - The system cores of your OS (e.g. 8)
  • - bStats-supported plugins
  • - Plugin version of bStats-supported plugins

Note, that plugin authors can send custom data, too. All data is public so you can see which data they send. Also notice all sent data is anonymous and we do NOT link the sent information with the server (e.g. server xyz is using plugin zyx) and we also do NOT store the ip of your server.


If you don't want that your server sends data to bStats you can disable it by setting enabled to false in the bStats config file. The config can be found in the /plugins/bStats/config.yml file.
