1.8.8 Hover Message & clickable messages

Discussion in 'Spigot Plugin Development' started by SoulSteel, Jan 11, 2020.

  1. Does someone have a tutorial for Hover Message & clickable messages?
    Note: never used Hover Message & clickable messages
  2. even thou that might be a good tutorial, it depends on Vanilla / NMS-code. The usage of a suitable API (and, in case of spigot, md_5 has created such an API) should be prefered for the simple reason of version stability
  3. You should use the API that spigot provides for this
  4. to elaborate on @robertlit, the reason is that classes like IChatComponent are inside NMS and will, therefore, change on every new Minecraft version. The logic might stay the same, but you'll either have to build your plugin against multiple Minecraft versions or use some form of adaptation. This is something that spigot has already done for you, so there is no need to do it yourself.
