PistonMOTD Config

Not everything in the config is self explaining. So we documented it here.

Global

Config entries you will find across all platforms:

MOTD

List of motd shown to the client, which are separated by %newline%.

Note: RGB colors ARE supported!

Playercounter

This is a small list of entries shown when you hover over the playercount. (0/100 as an example)

Protocol

This is a message shown when the clients version isn’t the one from the server.

It allows colors codes (When no color codes are there its red)

Override online

Overrides the displayed count of players who are online!

Override max

Overrides the displayed count of players who can join your server!

Icons

All 64x64 png formatted images in the icons folder of PistonMOTD (often where the config.yml is) will be randomly displayed if this is enabled.

Note: The name doesn’t matter, and you can also force a default image by just putting one image into the folder!

Hooks

Hooks allow you to hook into other plugins api and use them for a special feature:

Luckperms playercounter

Displays:

[Epic dev] Pistonmaster

instead of

Pistonmaster

In the playerlist aka playercounter. The highest role of the player (by weight) will be displayed!
