Chats


Progressing into bungee has seen the introduction of new chat plugins; some work in a different way than before, to accommodate our new system, whereas others are the same and work the same as you?re all used to. While it will take some time to get used to accessing and using these new commands, we are certain that it will feel normal after you do.

Below is a list of the chat modes that you get used to:


General (Global) - default chat mode, messages visible to everyone; accessible to everyone
Local - messages visible to nearby players only; accessible to everyone
World - messages visible to people in your world/server only, e.g. kattalox, horizon, etc ; accessible to everyone
Senior member - accessible only to senior member rank and above; messages visible only to senior member rank and above
Party - messages visible to players in your party; accessible to those in a party
Clan - messages visible to players in your clan; accessible to those in a clan
Private messaging - messages visible only to the sender and recipient of a private message; accessible to everyone


Commands:


/gon - locks the chat to global chat; you can now type here freely
/lon - locks the chat to local chat; you can now type here freely
/won - locks the chat to world chat; you can now type here freely
/smon - locks the chat to senior member chat; you can now type here freely
/p [message] - sends a message to your party; you need to repeat this for every message you send here
/cc [message] - sends a message to your clan; you need to repeat this for every message you send here
/msg [person] [message] - sends a private message to a specified player; you can use the next command to converse more easily, but you need to repeat for every message you send via this method
/r [message] - replies to a private message you have received from a player; you need to repeat this for every message you send via this method


You can use @[name] to 'ping' someone in chat, using their full in-game username. When someone is pinged, their name will show in lime green, as opposed to the respective chat colour.
Players that use this feature get a 30-second cooldown before using it again. Don't overuse it; you have been trusted to use this responsibly. Failure to do so will result in the feature being withdrawn.



Clans


As the server moves to BungeeCord, new changes are introduced, and chatting with friends and townmates will be a new experience. Clans is an extension to the new Party & Friends plugin introduced to SentinelCraft as an alternative to Towny Chat and is somewhat similar to our McMMO Party plugin that can host a number of people for some chit chat.

To start, a player creates a clan with /clan create [ClanName] [ClanTag] and becomes the clan leader. They can then invite players as part of the clan with /clan invite [Player] and either be accepted or rejected by the invited player using /clan join [ClanName] or /clan decline [ClanName].

To chat with other clan members, type in /clan chat [Message] or /cc [Message], or /clan toggle to directly send messages without the need to enter commands.

Note that McMMO Party is now replaced with the Party & Friends plugin, and that the party created will be deleted once one member is left after everyone else logs out.


Below are the commands for clans and their functions:

/clans - Shows all the commands for clans
/clan create [ClanName] [ClanTag]    - Creates a new clan
/clan name <New name of the clan> - Sets a new name for your clan
/clan tag [New clan Tag] - Sets the clan tag
/clan delete      - Deletes the clan
/clan invite [Player] - Invites a player into your clan
/clan kick [Player] - Kicks a player from your clan
/clan leader [Player] - Makes a new player to the leader
/clan join [ClanName] - To join an existing clan
/clan decline [ClanName] - To decline a clan invitation
/clan leave - Leaves the clan you are in
/clan party - Invites all clan members into a party
/clan toggle - Toggles if you msg directly into the clan chat
/clan chat [Message] - Communication between clan members
/clan get [Player] - Outputs the clan where the given player is in
/clan list <Clan> - Lists the players who are in your/the given clan
/clan stats <Clan> <Stat> - Outputs the stats of your/the given clan
/clan setcolor [Color] - Set the color of your clan
/clan rmcolor - Removes the color or your clan
/clan settings - Outputs the settings interface for clans

Note that clan chat and the towny plugins are two very different things. Towny and towny commands do not require clans to be made in order to function. Clan chat was introduced to fill the void left by removing town and nation chats.

It is up to you if you want to create a clan, but doing so will not affect how towny works, and it is not a must. It is simply there if you want a town chat or nation chat supplement, or rather a chat available to you and friends that you regularly play with on the server.



Friends


Below are the friends plugin commands and the functions of each.

/friend add [Name of player] - Add a friend
/friend accept [Name of player] - Accepts a friend request
/friend deny [Name of player] - Denies a friend request
/friend remove [Name of friend] - Removes a friend
/friend list - Shows a list of all your friends
/friend listrequests - Shows a list of your existing friend requests
/friend block [Name of player] - Blocks a player
/friend unblock [Name of player] - Unblocks a player
/friend blocklist - Shows a list of blocked players
/friend settings - Change friends settings



Parties


Below are the commands for party.

/party join [Name of Party Leader] - Joins an existing party
/party leave - Leave the existing party you're in
/party invite [Name of Player] - Invite a player to your party
/party leader [Name of Player] - Makes a member of your party the leader   
/partychat [Message] or /p [Message] - To communicate between party members


Though it is unfortunate that we'll be leaving behind town chat and nation chat, the new plugins will provide a refreshing experience, and it won't take long to adjust to them through frequent use. You can refer to this guide if using the new commands confuses you!

Happy chatting

It all depends on how you want to use it really, you can have/join a clan dedicated for a nation if it exists or each town can create its own clan to have a town chat and you'll be deprived of talking to others privately.

The point is, which alot seem to miss, clan chat is irrelevant to towny it only came to fill the void left by removing town chat and nation chats. It's up to you guys to set it up however you want whetheir as a nation chat, town chat or just as a chat full of the friends you regularily play with.
