DeluxeChat allows you to create endless customizable chat formats that add "hover tooltips" and also suggest/execute command on click to your chat!

This plugin should be compatible with most chat spam/chat utility plugins but it will override your chat format to be displayed through the formats defined in the DeluxeChat config.yml. (This will override any essentials chat formats/chat channel plugins to display the DeluxeChat format. See the known issues/bugs part for incompatible plugins)
DeluxeChat is made to handle all aspects of how your chat formatting looks.

Chatformat and priority

Chat formats are loaded from the config.yml and are tied to permission nodes.
To give a player/group a chat format, you will need to give the player/group the permission chatformat.<yourFormatIdentifier>.

If a player has multiple chat format permissions available, the chat format priority will determine what format should be active for the player/group.
You can assign the priority of each chat format!
The priority-system is always lower number = higher priority!


DeluxeChat is also fully compatible with Towny. It will work alongside TownyChat so you can manage your chat channels within TownyChat and allow DeluxeChat to handle your chat formatting. If you would like To use TownyChat integration, there is only one requirement. In your Towny channels.yml you must add a new option to every channel - hooked: true

        commands: [g]
        type: GLOBAL
        channeltag: '&f[g]'
        messagecolour: '&f'
        permission: ''
        craftIRCTag: 'admin'
        range: '-1'
        hooked: true # Add this to your channel in TownyChat
