ChatControl Red - Format & Filter Chat v10.24.5

Elite formatting and filtering plugin. Can replace 200+ plugins. High-performance. Folia supported.
WOW! I have been running a Minecraft server for over 10 years and have never seen a plugin this polished. The author is incredibly active supporting and updating it. The config allows you to customize the plugin beyond your wildest dreams. This truly is an all-in-one option for your chat, and there are no other plugins that even come CLOSE to this one!
I'll give you 5 stars since I've always preferred this chat plugin / legacy versions on every server I've ever played. Naturally I had to buy it for myself when I finally decided to make one.

But could you please type out instead of making screenshots on the wiki lol, makes it easier when copying the examples. Not a huge deal if you don't.

Either way, keep up the good work :D

so excellent!!!!!!!!! It is to do better and better

Maybe no multilingual is the only weakness, but I will translate it by myself.

By the way, I have been feeling sad that it's inactive on spigotmc until I see the informed email. Thank you!

Thank you very much :) Glad you found it!
The best chat managing plugin so far, at the time I wrote this. Other plugins are just either outdated, or don't have as many features as this! It can even replace some plugins.

By far the best chat plugin available for Minecraft. I've been using ChatControl for several years and have never found anything as flexible and customisable with such a rich set of features. The support has also always been exceptional!

Overall, this plugin has some interesting potential but also comes with certain limitations, primarily due to its usability challenges. The latest version of the resource appears to be stable and functional, which is a positive sign. However, there are areas where it could improve.

In terms of functionality, the plugin effectively delivers on its promises. I haven't encountered significant performance issues or conflicts with other plugins. Nevertheless, there are some features I would like to see improved in future updates.

Support for this plugin is an aspect that could use enhancement. While I understand that reviews should not be used to ask support-related questions, and doing so might result in actions from the creator, it would be beneficial if the developer provided better documentation or a more efficient support system.

In summary, this plugin is solid but has room for improvement. If the developer continues to work on it and addresses some of the current issues and limitations, it could easily deserve a higher rating in the future. The limitations mentioned are related to the wiki; improving the wiki would be beneficial.

Thanks! I see that you used ChatGTP to generate the review. If you have any specific points please send us a message over at Discord, GitHub or email. I respectfully disagree with reviews being used to ask for support.

I've been inactive on the Minecraft scene for quite a long time, but I've used the original ChatControl and ChatControl Pro since day 1 with great pleasure. ChatControl Red is no exception and works exceptionally well!

Huge thanks to kangarko for his continued devotion to this plugin

Upgraded from ChatControl Pro to this I was initially excited for the upgrades, but the poor documentation of the wiki made me spend >2 days trying to figure out how to get it to work at its bare minimum, turns out you need to enable channels (why would it be disabled by default if nothing works as a result?) and force people to auto join channels. Plus the fact that you need MySQL for BungeeCord now makes BungeeCord support not usable for me, as my set-up only uses sqlite and everything needs to be in a portable, self-contained system. tldr; it broke many things for not much benefit for a user like me, and in fact is a step back in certain areas.

Thanks for the review.

Sorry to hear, next time just open a ticket on GitHub and I'll migrate the file from ChatControl Pro for you with the changes you wanted.

I assume you already saw it but here is an article on not having channels just having 1 formatting for all: https://github.com/kangarko/ChatControl-Red/wiki/Channels#not-having-channels-and-only-having-1-chat-classic-system

Yes I am aware of the BungeeCord requirement for MySQL but ChatControl Pro does not support network players really, there is no tab completion etc., its Bungee is very basic and BungeeCord plugin messaging is limited hence we opted in to use MySQL.
Gonna be honest with this plugin and say that 70% of it is bloat. The channels system is very over complicated for something simple as chat formatting. The filter is nice and it has alot of words but because it uses regex you can bypass essentially everything by just putting an underscore infront of the word, and the plugin is very poorly optimized. (https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/1015995850545180763/1120688242518392924/brave_4PMF2NkyEb.gif) In the gif you can not only see how massive my timings report is but also the fact that it uses 5% of my servers resources. Yes, I will admit that this plugin was nice while I used it but I switched to a core plugin (not naming it) that already has most of those features built in. This plugin is genuinely not worth the money unless you really need a feature from it that you cant find elsewhere.

Hey! Thanks for your feedback.

I agree, the plugin can seem bloated when you don't configure it to your needs. The standard setup comes with 50-100 examples which you can delete. These are just examples from big networks on how people used the plugin.

1. Channels can be made very simple, you don't have to use any other file, everything can be done in the main settings.yml using a few lines of code, see: https://i.imgur.com/5rsHtC1.png

The channel system using external files is again an advanced feature used by many customers because it supports gradients, hover/click events, javascript etc. No need to use it.

2. The regular expression filters can - and should - be customized - to prevent bypasses which you see fit. We have an entire article about how to add more blocks here: https://github.com/kangarko/chatcontrol-red/wiki/Rules

3. Sorry to see the lag, please open a ticket at GitHub including your /chc debug log and I'll assist you. Looks like another plugin is sending component-based messages and we caught them in the packet pipeline. Fastest fix is to disable protocollib integration at our side entirely, proper fix is to detect what these messages are with the data you provide to customer service.
One of the best chat plugins ever made - I don't think I would be able to run a server without it.
Honestly, this is by far the best chat plugin I've ever owned. It has everything you could ever need, and it's super customizable. Their discord has the best community support I might have ever seen too
One of the best chat plugins ever made, fast and good support
