    • 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:

    Great plugin.
    I had a question for the author. Can you make custom sequences out side of rainbow (not customizing the rainbow-sequence, but to add a bunch of new ones)? How do you add things to the gui? Is it possible?

      Hi Niez, thanks for the review! Currently it is not possible to create fully customised colour sequences, although this has been suggested - it is something I will add in the next update. I don't currently have a lot of spare time so it might be a while until I add this, though :)

      I would appreciate if you could tell me what exactly is wrong with the plugin instead of just giving a negative review for no reason. I can't fix it, otherwise.

    The concept is nice and all, but the plugin is broken* (1.15.2)
    If this would get fixed, I would recommend the plugin since the idea is nice.

    *can't select color in GUI, gives error.

      Thanks for the review! I'll take a look at this and hopefully get it fixed soon. I hope you'll reconsider your review when it's fixed :)

    This plug-in is really great. If MySQL supports it
    That would be even better
    I hope you can update the plug-in to support MySQL as soon as possible

    Hello, this plugin works great and is one of the only up to date chat color plugins! Do you have any way of allowing characters to set the color of their name as it appears in chat?

      Author's Response
      Hey, thanks for the review :) Unfortunately not, this plugin only manages the colour of chat messages. I would suggest using a separate plugin for display names :)
