Setting the Message of the Day (MOTD)

You can set your MOTD (the description message shown in the server list in your game client) directly in the Multicraft control panel.
Simply login to the control panel, go to the Files > Config Files > Server Settings menu, and look for the "MOTD" box. Enter what you want there, save, and restart your server for it to be set.
You can also edit the server.properties file directly to change the MOTD.

Here is a list of various color codes you can use for your MOTD. To use them, simply enter the code for each color before the text to be that color. Note that ALL text after that color code will be in that color until you use another color code or use the "RESET" code listed below to stop the color.
