Minecraft chat mod

While the above settings provide plenty of customization, you can add even more features to your Minecraft chat to enhance your chatting experience. For example, imagine chatting with a friend on the other side of the world without being on the same Minecraft server. Or perhaps you want to send a message only to one player without your whole Minecraft server seeing it. Maybe you're just looking to give your chat some custom colors and a new look. This and many other features are possible using Badlion Client's chat mod.
