Every player is able to freely customize the colors of their chat messages with the use of some simple chat formatting. Everyone in the server is able to see the formatting.
Include an escaped hex symbol
\#, followed by the 6 digit hex code, in front of all the text you want to be colored with that color.
The format for standard coloring is
\#(hex symbol) XXXXXX(6 digit hex value).
\#000000Hello, Worldwill print a black
Transparency adds a new dimension of customizing the colors of your chat messages.
Include 2 escaped hex symbols
\##, followed by the 6 digit hex code and then the transparency value, in front of all the text you want to be colored with that color. The transparency value ranges from 00 (least visible) to 99 (most visible).
The format for transparency is
\##(2 hex symbols) XXXXXX(6 digit hex value) YY(transparency).
Eg. 80% transparency would be
\##00000080Hello, World, which will print a black
Hello, Worldwhich is 80% visible.
You can do both Standard and Transparency Coloring multiple times in a single chat message. These codes will only override the colors of the text after the code. However, there is a character limit for every chat message sent.
