    The Official Chat Plugin of VENTUREMC

    VentureChat is a do-it-all chat plugin rated as the #1 Bukkit chat resource on Spigot. Much of what makes VentureChat so great is its versatility. VentureChat functions extremely well on all types of servers - big or small - Bukkit or Bungee. The plugin also has a bunch of configurable and toggleable special features, including a Moderation GUI, mute management, JSON hovers, nicknames, channels, Bungee/network channels, grouped server channels, private channels, placeholders (lots of placeholder capabilities) and much more. If it involves chat, VentureChat can do it.

    Check out the Pro Tips section down below!

    • Channels system for a controlled chat: Players can join channels they want to hear and leave channels they don't want to hear.
    • JSON formatting: Hover messages over the players prefix and name are now configurable based on custom JSON groups in the config.
    • Muting: You can mute players in a channel, optionally for a time in minutes, or all channels at once.
    • Proxy muting: You can mute players on any server in the network through the bungeecord proxy.
    • Forcing: You can force a player or all players to send messages or run commands.
    • Channel permissions: You can make channels with permissions. Ex: Staff channels or donator channels.
    • Channel distances: You can configure a distance for players to hear a channel. Ex: A town or local channel
    • Channel cooldowns: You can set a cooldown time in seconds for a channel for a cooldown between a player sending a message. There is a bypass permission for cooldowns.
    • BungeeCord channels: You can have a channel send its messages to other servers in a BungeeCord network.
    • Towny formatting: You can choose to use Towny prefixes like towns nations and the Towny titles.
    • Jobs formatting: You can choose to use the job titles from the Jobs plugin.
    • Colors for channels and chat: You can set 2 colors for each channel, the color for the channels tag and a color for the color of the chat in that channel.
    • Chat filter: You can setup a chat filter in the config to filter out vulgar words or anything you want.
    • Quick chat: Players can use /channel [message] to send a message into that channel without switching into it.
    • Party chat: Players can join parties and create private groups.
    • Supports Vault for player prefixes: Any permissions plugin that works with vault will work with this plugin.
    • In game configuration editing: You can edit the configuration in game and it will automatically reload the plugin for instant updates.
    • Anti spam: You can choose to use the anti spam which automatically mutes spammers.
    • Custom formatting: You can either use the default channel, party, and messaging formats, or make your own with the format feature.
    • Towny channels: If you have towny installed, create channels called Town and Nation and they will become towny channels.
    • VanishNoPacket support: If you have VanishNoPacket installed, private messaging will be disabled to vanished players.
    • Cross server messaging: The plugin can be installed into the bungeecord plugins folder to add cross server messaging.
    • MySQL logging: You can optionally use a MySQL database to log all chat and commands from the server.
    • BungeeCord synchronization: Mutes and channel data from BungeeCord channels, along with spy and commandspy settings will be automatically synchronized throughout the network
    • PlaceholderAPI Placeholders: All PlaceholderAPI placeholders will work in the chat format, JSON formatting, and moderation GUI.
    • Commandspy custom formats
    • Customizable messages!
    • Hex colors now supported!
    Additional Planned Features
    • More BungeeCord synchronization

    5. Using the config in the "VentureChat" folder generated by the jar, you can change the default values to your liking and setup channels and formats. Included are some basic default channels to display possibilities, but feel free to create your own. Detailed guides on the VentureChat config are available on the wiki.

    Version: 2.19.3
    It's the best chat formatting and moderation plugin I ever had. I'm having a problem, I have two groups showing before the playername (three types of groups staff, donor and player). So because I have two groups for each player (for example, one for staff and the other for player rank) is getting the lowest priority group from json formatting (that is the Owner group). So I have now showing a VIP group with the hover from the group OWNER.

    I hope you understand me =D. Thanks for your help!

    Amazing! Although the /msg format isn't to what I like, still very good in my honest opinion!

      The server I play on uses the plugin Item2Chat (version 4.4.5) which works perfectly with VentureChat.

      Thanks for the review.

    Hello, VentureChat is great. We all like to use it, so I want to repost your plugin to MCBBS, but I will not distribute the plugin, but redirect it to your Spigot page. Hope you agree.

    VentureChat is quite flexible in the degree of customisation it provides in chat formatting.

    Not that most servers would require it, but with VentureChat you will be able to even include timestamps for each message.

      There’s literally a Messages.yml file with every configurable message in the plugin. You can translate it yourself.

    The plugin is really good, but i cant change the private message: "You message player: example" to "Você enviou uma mensagem para: example. "

    And i don't know how to change this too, "Player messages you: example" to "Você recebeu uma mensagem de: example"

    Great Plugin! Sorry for the last bad review mb on my part! Its just confusing why 2 configs are being generated but the "config" is the needed, not the defaultconfig.
