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.



Requires Protocolize v2.2.5 to be installed on your proxy. LuckPerms is also strongly recommended for prefix/suffix/role (and sorting) support.

Simply download the latest release and place it in your Velocity plugins folder (along with Protocolize).


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) or MiniMessage formatting.


You can include placeholders in the header, footer and player name format of the TAB list. The following placeholders are supported:

%players_online%Players online on the proxy6
%max_players_online%Player capacity of the proxy500
%local_players_online%Players online on the server the player is on3
%current_date%Current real-world date of the server24 Feb 2023
%current_time%Current real-world time of the server21:45:32
%username%The player's usernameWilliam278
%server%Name of the server the player is onalpha
%ping%Ping of the player (in ms)6
%prefix%The player's prefix (from LuckPerms)&4[Admin]
%suffix%The player's suffix (from LuckPerms)&c
%role%The player's primary LuckPerms groupadmin
%debug_team_name%Internal team value, used for list sorting1_alpha_William2

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.


To build Velocitab, simply run the following in the root of the repository:

./gradlew clean build

The build will be output as /target/Velocitab-x.xx.jar.
