Better Chat is a complete replacement of the in-game chat. Better Chat is better in a lot of ways, with features such as:

  • Built-in emotes
  • Easier to read names and club tags
  • Right-clicking player names for options (spectate, Trackmania.io profile, block, etc.)
  • Highlighting on @ mentions
  • Custom chat commands
  • Autocompletion for mentions, emotes, and commands
  • Blocking & filtering
  • Streamer mode to censor some bad stuff

This plugin is open source! Feel free to report issues or contribute on Github: https://github.com/codecat/tm-better-chat

Known issues

Better Chat might not work properly on some Pyplanet servers, due to Pyplanet doing some weird custom chat stuff. There's a Pyplanet Github issue for it here.
