Styled Signs and Texts In Game

So after a little playing around in game I've put together a list of codes for changing up the signage a bit. :geek: No mods Required!
These are based on html/bb code.

Code Snipits



Bold Text


Italic Text


Underlined Text

<s>Strike through</s>

Strike Through Text


Small lower text


Small upper text


Creates a new line, lots of them will push the text off the board to make floating text.

<size=10>Font Size</size>

Text will automatically scales if not used


Can Use: "left", "center"(standard),"right"


And of cause Colours!



Only some basic colour words work.

<color=#fff>3 Digit Hex</color>

3 digit Hex, 1 for each RGB level

<color=#ffffff>6 Digit Hex</color>

6 digit Hex, 2 for each RGB level

<color=#ffffff00>Hex + Opacity</color>

6 digit Hex, 2 for each RGB level & 2 numbers for opacity (00=invisible 99=solid)

Use a site like to get the hex number.

These below DO NOT work.

Code Snipits


<table>, <th , <tr>, <td>

Tables are accepted but do not work

<glow>,<bg>,<background>,<img>, <stroke>,<h1>,<h2>,<h3>,<url>,<link>,<href>,<div>,<li>,<span><xoffset><yoffset><zoffset>

These have all been tested and sadly do not work.

Here is an example of the floating text and its code. Its sits at head height and the small sign is under 1 block of dirt, under the chest. Take note of the amount of "<br>" that are required to push it up.
<size=20><color=#ff0000>P</color><color=#ff2a00>u</color><color=#ff5500>b</color><color=#ff7f00>l</color><color=#ffbf00>i</color><color=#ffff00>c</color> <color=#55ff00>c</color><color=#00ff00>h</color><color=#00ff55>e</color><color=#00ffaa>s</color><color=#00ffff>t</color><color=#0080ff>!</color>
The closing </b> are not required unless you want to change from one state to another.

All text within the <> should be lowercase only.

Once the 2nd bracket/carrot ">" is typed the code part will disappear but it is there and can be clicked on as if it was still there.
This can make it very hard to navigate your text in-game so I recommend you type it out in Notepad and Copy/Paste in to your Sign, Cart or in-game chat.

That's it for now, if i find some more I'll add, or if any of you discover other codes let me know and I'll add them to the list.

And here's a rainbow text example and the standard sing for comparison.

This will also work for server names, I'm sure you may have already seen some colourful ones.;)

can i do a gradient server name? linear top down? or any other like your ts.slightlyharmless color thing i was searching for some code on google but all things i found did not work in eco
You can only do gradient by colouring the letters individually. For example the is as below here on the forum.
You can use a web site (have a Google, there are loads out there) to generate it as bb code like above, then use a text editors search and replace function to swap out [ ] for <> then paste it in to the game or servers network config file to get something like I have on my server.
