[Suggestion] Custom group chats different color

#1
Hi there all!

We have the ability to make a new chat just to chat in with your mates, by typing /ch [group chat name].
That's wonderful. I use it all the time with Gromm and Lemarc when we're working at the region. Sometimes someone goes out of range of local, or goes to the sorrows for resources or XP, and we can continue to chat!

The thing is; it is super confusing with OOC chat going on, and we don't always want to leave /ch ooc, cause of obvious reasons. It's confusing, because the chat colors are the same. The only difference it the little white text [group name] in front of the name of the person talking.

So could you please, if possible, change the color of the group chat to something that is not already used?

Thanks for considering, would love to hear a reply to this :heart:

If it helps, you can change the title of your chats and /leave ooc? When you make a channel, add in symbols to color code the title. It could help reading over OOC, too.

Example:
/ch &3Linlea

Is it at all possible to change the text you type? Cause that is what is the confusing part. I normally read over the first bit with the names without consciously reading them :/

Does that mean it's not possible to change the color to anything different than the current colors being used for chats?

it could be any of those colours there, a load of which aren't being used right now.

You can use /ch &3Linlea&f] but it's still not an easy fix
The code you'd have to change is really tiny . . . + Chatcolor.WHITE + "]" + . . .

Then what are we waiting for? Let's go for &c and we solved (by the count of this thread) at least five people's problems; most likely more from the people that didn't feel like leaving a reply saying they'd like to see this implemented.

Guys. The plugin right now doesn't have that capability. It's not a "oh just put the color code in" if you're making it so that the chats can be /customizable/ by the creator. And if it's not a hollow plugin we can't change that at all.

This is the first time someone actually mentions that it can't be done cause of the plugin not being able to do it. Can't blame us for asking if such answer is not yet given :')

It's something that's come up over the years. I remember asking back in like 2014 or 2015. It's a fair request that comes up a few fair times, but the custom text channel isn't something we can change. :c

Sorry I wasn't very clear. Those are all the /possible/ colors.

I could code it.

Is the titles plugin different to the chat plugin? Tiberione
