RealMotd is advanced MOTD plugin. It offers you big amount of variables to use in MOTD, different MOTD every day, permission checking in motd and colors in MOTD.
This plugin offers you big amount of variables, so here you go!(please let me know if I forgot something)
Commands can be used to set MOTD in-game. It’s good for quick changing, but you’re limited to 80 chars. Use /motd set <motd> to set default motd and /motd set <month> <day> <motd> to set a day-specific motd. While setting motd in-game, use /n for newline and colors stay the same.
This plugin generates configuration file after its first run.
transl.weather.clear - Translation for weather clear transl.weather.raining - Translation for raining transl.mode.creative - Translation for creative mode transl.mode.survival - Translation for survival mode transl.op.is - Translation for OP transl.op.isnt - Translation for regular player transl.permission.has - Translation for has permission transl.permission.hasnt - Translation for hasn't permission transl.time.day - Translation for day transl.time.night - Translation for night transl.env.nether - Translation for nether transl.env.sky - Translation for skylands transl.env.normal - Translation for regular world transl.flight.allowed - Translation for flight allowed transl.flight.denied - Translation for flight denied permission - The character which identifies, that the text next to it is permission verification motd.mode - Mode of motd. Must be one of these: Daily, Random, Single
Setting up MOTD
Setting up motd is very easy. Go to <your server’s folder>/plugins/RealMotd where you find folder “messages”.
Example configuration file
transl.weather.clear: Clear transl.weather.raining: Raining transl.mode.creative: Creative transl.mode.survival: Survival transl.op.is: Operator transl.op.isnt: Player transl.permission.has: can transl.permission.hasnt: can't permission: ^ transl.time.day: Day transl.time.night: Night transl.env.nether: Nether transl.env.sky: Skylands transl.env.normal: Overworld transl.flight.allowed: can transl.flight.denied: can't mode: single
How do I use the configuration file like that???
There are lots of options how to make MOTD as you wish. This example configuration file can be used as following: [plugins/RealMotd/messages/motd.txt]
Hello %op% %player%! You ^can.mine mine blocks and ^can.build build. You ^can.fly fly. Time of server is %time%. That's %timestat%. It's %weather%.
Look at the result MOTD. I’ve attached two of them, so you can see which parts of MOTD are changing. The result MOTD for code like that would look like this:
Hello Player Tomsik68! You can't mine blocks and can't build. You can't fly. Time of server is 13536. That's night. It's Clear.
Hello Operator Tomsik68! You can mine blocks and can build. You can fly. Time of server is 1353. That's day. It's Raining.
To use colors in your MOTD, you just enter ‘&’ with a name of color you’d like to use for following text. You can change color again by doing new line, or entering next color’s name.
Adding colors is very simple. You just write down the name of color you want to use before the text you want to be colored, like in the example: &aquaSome text! &blackThis message is poorly visible! &whiteHello there!
You can use itallics, underline, bold,strike and random text as of the latest update.
It’s as simple as adding colors, but if you want both formatted and colorized text, remember to put formatting mark after the color mark. Here are available names: &bo, &no,&it, &un, &ran, &str, &rbow. &bo = bold &ran = write a random string (used in one of the splashes) &str = strike &it = itallics &un = underline &no = remove formatting(except colors) &rbow = rainbow!(random color for each letter, configurable). TIP: Use &no to end rainbow.
As this plugin is very customisable, you can try to figure out some trick with configuration, variables or colors. And if you don’t know how to do something with this plugin, send me a PM, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I like to help! Thanks and Enjoy!
