For Developers

This plugins provides a simple to use API for other plugins to utilize:

  • GetClan(tag:string):JObject
    Returns a JObject (reference Newtonsoft.Json.dll) representing the clan using the specified tag or null if there is no such clan.
    The JObject contains the following properties: tag:string, description:string, owner:string, moderators:JArray, members:JArray, invited:JArray.
    All members are represented by their SteamID as a string.

  • GetClanOf(player:ulong|string|BasePlayer):string
    Returns the clan tag of a player's clan or null if the player is not a member of a clan.

  • GetAllClans():JArray
    Returns an array of all clan tags.

The plugin also calls the following hooks (no return behavior) on changes:

  • OnClanCreate(tag:string)
    Called when a new clan has been created

  • OnClanUpdate(tag:string)
    Called when clan members or invites change. Note: Make sure not to do any clan updates within your hook method, as this would most likely result in an infinite loop.

  • OnClanDestroy(tag:string)
    Called when a clan is disbanded or deleted


  • Move messages from configuration to language file
  • Remove unnecessary ResourceId
  • Remove unnecessary[HookMethod(...)] attributes
