Velocitab is a super-simple Velocity TAB menu plugin that uses scoreboard team client-bound packets to actually sort player lists without the need for a backend plugin. Supporting modern RGB formatting, animations, comprehensive placeholder support and defining multiple TAB menus for different groups of servers, Velocitab is a versatile plugin, useful for any Velocity-based proxy network.



Simply add the jar to your Velocity /plugins/ folder. It's also recommended that you install LuckPerms for prefix/suffix/role (and sorting) support. Then, edit the plugin config.yml to your liking.


Velocitab has a simple config file that lets you define a header, footer and format for the player list. You can additionally configure groups of servers to display different formats in the TAB menu depending on which server the player is viewing it from.


Velocitab supports the full range of RGB colors and gradients, with options to use either MineDown (default), MiniMessage, or legacy formatting. Basic header and footer animations are also supported.


You can include placeholders in the header, footer and player name format of the TAB list.

PlaceholderAPI placeholders are also supported. To use them, just install PAPIProxyBridge on your Velocity proxy and backend Spigot servers. Additionally, a hook for MiniPlaceholders is supported for servers using the MiniMessage formatter.
