  • Minecord Wiki: Frequently Asked Questions (F.A.Q.)

    How does the algorithm work?

    The incorporated algorithm identifies every player’s location and groups those players who are within the configured radius. However, due to Discord API limitations, it is not possible to mute those players who are not within the radius but yes in the same group between them.

    Do I have to host the Discord bot apart from the server?
    No, when you start the plugin the bot will start at the same time. If you shut down the server or disable the plugin the bot will disconnect automatically. You may disconnect the bot manually with a command, nevertheless, this should be only used for debug purposes since it may cause errors.

    Is this plugin compatible with most of the other resources?
    Yes, it is. However, be careful when using the scoreboard option while having enabled in your server scoreboard-depending plugins. Be careful as well when having other bots in the same Discord server and make sure that the external bot will not interfere in any way with the incorporated Discord bot.

    How does the linking system work?
    The plugin will generate a code for any player who wants to link their Minecraft account with that player’s Discord account. The code will expire in 5 minutes and in order to link it, the player must send the four-digit code through a direct message to the Discord bot.

    Does this plugin support Bungee networks?
    Yes, it does. In order to use this plugin, you would need a database (MySQL...). Read the installation instructions for more information.

    How do I enable my voice chat?
    In order to enable your voice chat, you have to link your account firstly. You may, then, toggle your voice state with the appropriate command. In order to toggle your voice chat, you must be connected to the configured voice chat waiting channel. If you leave the waiting channel or any other voice chat channel your voice chat will be automatically disabled.

    How does the Force Voice Chat option work?
    When this option is enabled from the config, any player who attempts to join the server must be linked and waiting in the voice chat waiting channel. If somebody is not linked, the server will automatically kick this player and display a linking code in the kick message, that is to be sent to the Discord bot as if it was a normal case. The commands for linking, toggling or muting (not for unlinking or unmuting) will be disabled and can be only executed by or for players with the appropriated permission. Please note that any force toggle/unlink for any player will result in a kick (if this player does not count with the appropriated permission). When this system is enabled, muted players are treated as if they were not.

    How do I use the placeholders provided by the plugin?
    The plugin hooks into different placeholder APIs (listed in the main page of this resource). All the placeholders available through these implementations are listed in the config file and can be also configured. You can use them in any plugin which supports the hooked placeholder APIs.

    Can I hook into Minecord from my plugins?
    Yes, Minecord offers a developers API. You can check the documentation from the API main page.

    Important recommendations:
    Due to the limitations of the Discord API the plugin cannot prevent some errors from being caused, this is the reason because the following recommendations should be really taken into account.

    • When Minecord is installed in your server, never ever do a reload (/reload), instead start it and stop it, or do a restart (/restart).
    • Give the bot the highest rank in the Discord server’s hierarchy. (Even higher than the admin’s, owner’s or other bot's rank).
    • If the 'SetNick' field in the 'Options' section of the config file is enabled, do not attempt to modify any player’s nick that has been already changed by the bot. The owner’s nick cannot be modified by the bot.
    • The Discord owner will be able to enter the voice chat channels or move users from there. Please avoid joining the channels generated by the plugin manually as well as moving users from those channels.
    • Do not modify/delete any channel created by the bot. Likewise, do not try to create any channel starting (or containing) 'voice-' or 'vchat-' (or any other prefix used by the plugin) in the name.


    • If you are spammed by Discord pop-up messages click the 'Don't show this message nevermore' button just below the main text of the notification.
    • If you are spammed by Discord sounds on notification you may disable them from your account's settings.
    • Text-to-speech messages may not be received by players who have blocked the Discord bot or disabled this type of message in the Discord config.
