Customizable Join/Leave Messages
Starting from version 4.8, you can now customize the join and leave messages of your server! Once you install v4.8+, simply start your server, join and leave. Two new config options will be generated as shown below. You can then modify it as you please, using color codes, and @p for the player’s name. If you decide you wouldn’t like to change it, you simply set the messages back to
"" and it’ll use Minecraft’s messages once more. An example is shown below.
In your config, you’ll see an option added v2.3+ called joinmsg. Change that to change the message sent to a player when they join. It supports color codes, all of which are specified here.
Clickable Links In Chat
This feature enables any chat message that has a link, to be clickable by the user (if enabled in the client settings). The link MUST start with an
https:// to be detected by the plugin. For players, the permission to send a chat with a link is
Creating and Loading Worlds
This feature takes several arguments:
name - World Name dimension - Overworld, Nether, or End generator - Amplified, Default, Flat, Large Biomes, Nether, Overworld, or End gamemode - Survival, Creative, Spectator, Adventure difficulty - Peaceful, Easy, Normal, Hard
Warp Specific Permissions
Each warp now has its own permission as of v4.9c+ Please note that this still requires players to have the essentialcmds.warp.use permission to use /warp
Warp Name: Example Permission: essentialcmds.warp.use.example
Color Chat & Color Signs
Color chat and color signs the way everyone is used to! There are permissions for both, view them in the permissions section. Here is an example:
To use MySQL, open the config after downloading v2.8d+ and starting and stopping your server. A new section should have been created called mysql, under which there should be the option use. Set this to true, and restart your server once more. After doing this, your config will have more options, shown in the picture below.
Once you have these options, simply fill out the info for your MySQL and restart. All should be working.
AFK Kick Timer
This feature is very simple, and easy to use. All you have to do is install a EssentialCmds build v2.2+. A new set of config options will be added to the AFK option, looking similar to below:
If you change use to true, it enables the kick timer. Any player that is AFK for the timer amount specified under kick, they will be kicked.
Replace Chat Characters
Using EssentialCmds v2.5+ you can replace the chat characters from
> to anything you want.
This will result in:
To create a Warp Sign, you simply create a sign with this format:
[Warp] (warp name)
If the warp exists, the text [Warp] will appear as dark blue. If not, it will appear as dark red. You can write anything else on the remaining lines - just the first two lines must be formatted as such. Here is an example:
EssentialCmds will now render your prefixes! It can hook into PEX, or anything else that will set your prefix, and will display it. Example using PEX and EssentialCmds shown below.
To enable unsafe enchantments, you first must enchant something using the
/enchant command. Once you do so, in your config (if it was not already there) a new option will come up. Simply change this value to true, and it will enable unsafe enchantment (levels). An image is shown below:
Number of Homes Permissions/Options
Commands Using PEX:
/pex group [group name] option homes [number of homes allowed]
To enable unlimited homes:
/pex group [group name] option homes unlimited
Message when Reached Max Homes
/nuke /skull - Done, Sponge requires changes first.
A new update will be coming soon to “modular”-ize this project. This means features will be divided into multiple modules, for example: a Kits module, Economy module, Chat module, etc.
