    Lightbulb [HOW-TO] Multiline and multicolored MOTD

    So, having read the multicolored tutorial on Minecraftforum (Tutorial: Create Multicolored MOTD's! - Minecraft Forums)

    How to make a line-break in your MOTD:
    Simple use @ and it will be replaced with a line-break.
    Quite simple, i found the solution by asking google, but you don't have to do that

    How to use multiple colors in your MOTD:
    If you want more info, i highly suggest going to the thread on Minecraftforum.net, the link is above at the start of the post. All credit goes to TheCheeseman there.

    NOTE: colors are a bit differently colored in the actual game, this is the closest i could get them with the forum colors available!

    &0 = BLACK
    &1 = DARK BLUE
    &2 = DARK GREEN
    &3 = DARK TEAL
    &4 = DARK RED
    &5 = PURPLE
    &6 = GOLD (NOTE: forum colors didn't have this, real color is darker!!!)
    &7 = GREY
    &8 = DARK GREY
    &9 = BLUE
    &a = BRIGHT GREEN
    &b = TEAL
    &c = RED
    &d = PINK
    &e = YELLOW
    &f = WHITE
    HOWEVER for it to work on Multiplay you need to replace the &-symbol with the §-symbol, then the colors will work.

    Here is an image with the proper ingame colors, i found this on Minecraft Wiki (Classic Server Protocol - Minecraft Wiki):


    ----------------------------------------

    If you want a quick copy/paste MOTD so you can test if it all works for you, there is one:
    Code:
    §aWelcome to Minecraft!@§cHello.§e Build§d something§a fairly§b epic!

    ----------------------------------------

    Hopefully this little how-to will help those of you who haven't been able to figure it out, or simply too lazy to even try :P
    I will update the post with links and images once i've gotten the correct about of posts for the permissions to use those.

    Line breaks in the the MOTD line in server.properties works fine, but I noticed that in motd.txt or rules.txt it does not -- also if these files are too long, clients crash when doing /motd or /rules.

    Also gold is available on these forums Mixed opinion on whether it is gold or orange.

    &8Welcome to &5Thatz-Gaming! &8Remember to read the &cRULES &8at spawn!


    I pasted this with the § sign in my server.properties under the line; MOTD=

    It was there standard, however, ingame it shows up as:

    ?8Welcome to ?5Thatz-Gaming! etc.
