Coloured Chat Mod

Chat on vanilla servers can get hard to read with many people chatting at the same time. Coloured Chat Mod simply assigns a random colour to a users name when they join the server. It works server-side without requiring anything on the client.

Coloured Chat mod for minecraft

  • Configs allow you to change the delimiter around a players name (by default “<username>”), setup which colours will be randomly assigned, and disable commands.
  • The mod adds a single command:
    • /colouredchat clear|set colour: This command allows players to set a default colour upon joining the server, clear reverts the colour back to random (tab completions available only for modded clients)
    • /colouredchat random: This command randomizes the players colour (instead of players relogging consecutively)
    • /colouredchat list: This command lists all available colours, additionally the output can be clicked to auto fill the corresponding set command (added to make it easier for vanilla clients without auto tab completions)
    • /colchat (alias deprecated in 1.14.4 with new brigadier system)


Version 1.14.4-0.4.0 implements a brand new quasi-random colour assignment system:

  • Players are now randomly assigned colours from a reverse-bag system
  • This system ensures all colours are assigned before using any repeated colours
  • The system also attempts to maintain an equal distribution of all colours when repeated colours are needed
  • This system is independent of any randomly assigned or set colours (using the commands)
  • If you only want to use this system you can simply disable the random/set commands from the config

Version 1.14.4-1.4.2 added the option to auto assign a player to a placeholder team set to the colour of their name:

  • This allows for others to see a players colour in the player tab list and in the hovering name above a player
  • This option is disabled by default and can be enabled in the experimental section of the configs
