How do I install this?

A mod that logs player conversations to the world directory.

Originally forked from JBR's chatlog mod.


Available configuration settings:

  • chatlog.format
  • chatlog.single_file
    • Output to a single file (chatlog.txt) instead of separating by date (chatlog/YYYY_MM_DD.txt).
    • default: false
  • chatlog.disable
    • Disables logging.
    • default: false



Do you recommend this mod?

  • mod comparison: chatlog vs chat_record

    Benefit of chatlog over chat_record:

    • custom settings for timestamp format
    • setting to split log files by date, and has it's own folder so it doesn't create clutter
    • writes chat logs in realtime

    as a note, none of the mods log commands entered in the chat

  • Useful chat logging mod

    Potential privacy concerns of logging chat in a permanent manner aside, this is a very solid mod for logging and reading back chat in a better way than the built-in way of grepping for chat messages in the debug log.

    The default configuration is a bit odd having logs split per day enabled while also including the date in each chat log line, which is a bit verbose when the file already tells you the date of the chat messages. This can of course be configured by setting chatlog.format to just %H:%M:%S, omitting the date.
