This plugin can use an updated version of WolfieMario's Text Icon Resourcepack (updated pack links see below, don't use the one from the imgur album!) to display an icon in the chat in front of the item's name which is a retextured Chinese Han symbol. Enable this functionality by setting the
texticon-rp option to
true in the config.yml and set WolfieMario's pack as your server resourcepack or integrate the changed chinese font sheets in your current server resourcepack.
If you want to have more control your server resourcepacks and which players see the icons in chat then you can use one of my free Bungee Resourcepacks or World Resourcepacks plugins or the enhanced Force Resourcepacks version to force your users to use the pack!
Note for Chinese users
With the default settings a part of the unified Han-symbols section in the Unicode standard is overridden by the item icons so if you need these symbols you have to use a different area of the unicode standard.
The easiest is to just change the offset in the mapping's configs to
0xAC00 and use a modified icon resource pack. (see table below) These will use the modern Korean Hangul Syllables area of the Unicode instead which shouldn't interfere with Chinese Han Symbols as far as I'm aware.
If you want to use a different Unicode area then you will have to edit the names of the font files inside the resource pack accordingly.
