How to give yourself a Nickname
ANY player can set their own nickname in-game! Feel free to experiment & find the right one that works for you.
To give yourself a nickname, use the following command.
- /nick <nickname>
To remove your nickname, use the following command.
- /nick off
You can change the color of your nickname! You’re not restricted to using only one color code, either.
To use color in your nickname, use the formatting code of &<color-code> in your nickname. You cannot change the color of your rank (such as sprout, sakura, helper, etc), and you cannot change the color of your message text. Players with nicknames have a “~” symbol in front of them. To see their real username, you can type “/realname (nickname)” like “/realname MissGhouls”
The following colors can be used for color codes in nicknames:
- &0 Black
