HeroChat is a plugin developed by the Herocraft coding team.
Chatting with individual players
/tell [player name] [message],/msg [player name] [message] or /pm [player name] [message]
- Sends a private message to the named player. Name can be abbreviated, but beware whether there are other players in game with the same first few letters because the message could end up going to them.
- Sends all following text as a private conversation to the named player. Name can be abbreviated, but check the "Now chatting with..." message that you're chatting with the right player. Cancel by setting a chat channel.
- /r [message]
- Responds to player who most recently sent a private message to you.
Ignoring chat from certain players
- /gignore [player name]
- All messages from the named player, including private messages. Toggles on and off, so same command is used to unignore the named player.
/ch ignore [player name] or /ignore [player name]
- Future messages in public channels from the named player will not be displayed. Toggles on and off, as above.
- Lists the players you are ignoring.
Linking items in chat
- Immediately enters the currently-held item into the focused chat channel. Other players can mouse-over the item link to see its description. If you wish, you may also specify a certain player name after the command to show it to only that player.
- Using this in any message in any channel will show the item you are currently holding to all players viewing the chat channel
Using chat channels
