    Hey guys.
    Now I know people with donor ranks can use colour codes (Found here: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Formatting_codes) to talk in colour but I thought there should be a way to set a colour to your chat. Example plugins for this are ChatColor (https://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/chatcolor-s/), ChatColor+ (https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/chatcolor.1546/), ChatColor (https://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/chatcolor-s/) and many others. These plugins make it much easier to talk with colours and would be a nice, new, EULA-friendly, donor perk.
    I would like to see other peoples opinions on this.​
    Thank you for reading ~Trusty

    many people like me buy ranks to have perks if you can have the same features ranked players will feel scammed
    Also if you mean as adding a command to make your text a default color instead of typing &[number/letter] then yes 100% would be nice

    1) Cube makes their own plugins, so they will not add those plugins probably.
    2) I don't see why cube should change their colours. It's not that it's really necassery.

    CubeCraft create their own plugins, and I think it's unnecessary :)

    I hate the colored chat as it is, so I'm not a huge fan of making it EASIER to use it :p

    The gray is like you said soooooo boring. So a colored chat would be nice. But maybe just one color so persons with ranks don't feel scammed. :D

    Colored chat is a bants plugin it dosent matter if the server only does custom or not its one of the VERY few things the eula allows, also the vanity items arent necessary either but they added them anyway

    I wasn't talking about the EULA and I said that updating the color system wasn't necessary.

    Im saying the eula restricts the plugins you can create, certain plugins give advantages over others what im saying is there are very few cosmetic things or plugins you can create without 1. Breaching the Eula or 2. Duplicating other servers, sure they might not add colored chat but theres is little to none cubecraft can do that others havent

    In the past, if a donor used just colored chat it would look like spam, and get rather annoying. I think it's just fine the way it is.

    I do agree sometimes lots of colours looks like rainbow puke.

    They could just change the default colour.

    I think it's better how it is now, because if all of the colo(u)rs get spammed in chat, it would drive me completely nuts.

    I'm not really too much of a fan of the colored chat. I agree that the gray is kinda boring but the only other color I really tolerate is the white. Either way, I don't think setting chat colors is necessary.
