    [​IMG]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.

    • 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.
    Additional Planned Features
    • Commandspy custom formats
    • More BungeeCord synchronization
    • Customizable messages

    Version: 2.12.2
    Love the plugin, best I've used.
    Only thing that I can think of that would help it would be a permission to be able to use color in nickname and have the default without color
  2. nicrats
    Version: 2.12.2
    Great plugin, works just as expected.
    Note: if you can't figure out the JSON permission thing, it's listed as "mineverse.json.Owner", while the actual permission is "venturechat.json.Owner". Apart from that, great plugin!
  3. Lucy_the_Cow
    Version: 2.12.2
    An amazing plugin, very user-friendly and easy to customise everything. Replaced EssentialsChat seamlessly, and would never make a server without it. 5/5
  4. udlp
    Version: 2.12.2
    It's great, but take your time to set it up, don't just throw it in and expect everything to work exactly as you expect. Pretty much everything is buttered in options.

    The aliases function is really convenient, a commands.yml replacement if you don't need high complexity.

    Remember to set 'bungeecordmessaging' to false if you're not running bungeecord. If you don't do that, private messaging doesn't work.

    Also the dev is very responsive, not much of a wait for help if something is wrong.

    Version: 2.12.2
    great plugin, easiest to configure for those without much experience (and i know cos ive tried 4 different ones, including premiums). Author works with you as well, if you have issues, which is always nice to have
  6. paulhlschr
    Version: 2.12.2
    Oustanding plugin with many features and a very active developer.
    I recommend this plugin to everyone, who likes a big, but easy to use configuration.

    Version: 2.12.2
  8. Antrox
    Version: 2.12.2
    Every positive thing I want to say is already said in the previous reviews but in my opinion the best chat plugin out there. The author is very helpful and quite active. Problem solving goes fast and simple! Definitely recommended.
  9. Ctandeus
    Version: 2.12.1
    Oh my god! This is for much the best plugin for chat managment, good work. Linking with Discord and IRC... simply the best!!!
  10. Lucy_the_Cow
    Version: 2.11.1
    Love the plugin! Works a charm! Only reason I'm giving 4/5 is because you can't disable &k and &l for nicknames (to my knowledge) as well as us having a few issues setting up coloured chat for particular groups.
