    Source Code:
    This plugin was originally created by KennyTV, after he was no longer able to keep it up, I decided that I would keep it supported and keep updates rolling out.

    We are now accepting suggestions for ServerListMOTD! You can suggest new features here:

    This plugin lets you set a custom motd, a custom playercount, and playercount hover message. It also gives you the possibility of reloading the server-icon any time you want.
    Whatever version you want to use, just place the plugin inside your plugin folder of your server running Spigot, Bukkit, or BungeeCord!
    The Spigot version also comes with PlaceholderAPI support.

    If you want to use the plugin on Spigot, you need ProtocolLib to use it to its full extent!

      • serverlistmotd.command - use the motd commands listed below
      • serverlistmotd.reload - use the "/motd reload" command
      • serverlistmotd.update - use the "/motd update" command
      • serverlistmotd.setmotd - use the "/motd set" and "/motd remove" commands
      • serverlistmotd.list - use the "/motd list" command
    IMPORTANT - If you are using the plugin on your proxy server: You have to have these permissions on the proxy, not on the Spigot servers! This can be done by putting them into the Bungee config.yml as seen here:
    You either have to do this, or use a proxy permissions plugin.
    If you use it on a Spigot server, normal permission plugins should work (as well as being an operator).

    If you are using the Spigot version of the plugin, you have to have ProtocolLib installed to reload the server-icon and to change the playercount-message (the playercounthover-message can still be used without it)!
    For the Bungee version you don't need to have any other plugins installed.

    # ServerListMotd Plugin by KennyTV & Bradydawg
    # Version 2.1.6-BETA

    # The message shown in the multiplayer server list motd.
    # If you put in multiple entries, one of them will be chosen randomly on every ping.
      - "&aWelcome!%NEWLINE%&6Just saying hello! :D"
    #- "Another entry"

    # Is shown at the top right corner of the server in the serverlist,
    # where the playercount would normally be displayed.
    custom-playercountmessage: false
    playercountmessage: "&4Hoia!"
    # If set to false, only the given text will be shown without the playercount (requires custom-playercountmessage set to true).
    show-playercount: true

    # Is shown when you move your mouse above the text at the top right corner of the server in the serverlist,
    # where the playercount would normally be displayed.
    custom-playercounthovermessage: true
    playercounthovermessage: "&cJoin%NEWLINE%&cplz"

    # Server Icon shown to the left of the MOTD, by default the icon name is server-icon.png and the default path is the main
    # server path. It is recommended that you do NOT change this, but you can if you truly want to.
    server-icon-path: server-icon.png

    # If you don't want to be up to date, you can disable this!
    update-checks: true

    no-permission-message: "&cYou do not have the permission to execute that command."

    About Me:

    Hey! My name is Bradydawg. I'm a full stack developer, systems administrator, and "ubuntu goon". I've staffed on, owned, developed, and managed countless servers, and I've been developing plugins for Spigot/Bukkit for years. My mission for ServerListMOTD is to essentially provide support and updates for the Spigot community. I used this plugin, and CommandNPC (another plugin I provide support for) for years before they were abandoned. After they were abandoned, I decided to pick them up, and keep them free, because there's nothing better than finding the exact plugin you're looking for on Spigot, AND finding out that it's fully supported up to the latest version, AND free! I'd really appreciate it if you left a good review on my plugins, as that's really the only way of showing me that you appreciate what I'm doing. I hope you enjoy ServerListMOTD!

    It would be nice if there can be displayed messages like when a player is banned from a bansystem like litebans or maxbans, ect or not whitelisted. But it semms like that this resource is a resource which dont get any more update because the authors are inaktive

    Overall good, does what it's supposed to do.

    Lacking a few features of the plugin it "revitalizes" such as %line% to skip to next line.

    Thanks for keeping this up to date tho!

    The plugin is really nice. Easy to use. But is it 1.16? Cause when I try to add a new line to playercounthovermessage it shows a weird symbol saying LF. More bungeecord placeholders?

      It is 1.16, although I am just finding out about this weird bug. I'm going to start looking into the cause of it, and I will post an announcement or resource update when I fix it. Thanks for using ServerListMOTD! (For the latest updates, join our discord:

      Thank you for the review! I can definitely look into adding a %CENTER% variable that can be used for centering your MOTD! Thank you for the suggestion!
