You should get it because...
ChatBox is a great but still in development chat plugin which handles channels. There are currently 2 channels, global and local. The global channel can be used if you want the whole server to know what you want to say. You might say "I like pie" in the Overworld, and someone in The End would learn something about you. However, if you want to send a message to a few of your nearby friends, you could use the local channel, to avoid unneccasary awkwardness which comes with global channels. Might be useful for medium-sized survival servers.
Although in developement, it has quite a number of features, including (besides channels):
- Configure channels individually (check out config.yml)
- Disable chat with permissions
- Broadcast messages
- Color codes... and much more for you to discover!
ChatBox also uses a many permissions and commands which makes it very configurable. It includes default values which should be sufficient for regular servers. You can also change most of the messages in the configuration.
What is a plugin but not a bunch of commands?
Use /chatbox in-game to list all commands!
(excluding those you do not have permission to)
chatbox.broadcast - Access to /broadcast
chatbox.channel.global - Access to /global, default
chatbox.channel.local - Access to /local, default
chatbox.chat - Access to chat, default
chatbox.color - Allows player to use color codes (&a, &l, etc)
chatbox.info - Access to /chatbox
chatbox.mute - Access to /cmute
chatbox.mute.exempt - Prevents the player from being muted
chatbox.reload - Allows access to /chatbox reload
This plugin is still in development!
