Welcome to the Gaius Play Docs!
Gaius Play is the leveling bot offering many variables and factors in its immersive leveling system, such as customizable level/xp boosting, various equations, and unique options, to help engage your community's text and/or voice activity and enable users to show off their rank with flare.
The purpose of this documentation is to provide an in-depth, comprehensive informational guidance on every module, feature, and command for Gaius Play and provide detailed examples and explanations to foster greater understanding of everything Gaius.
Gaius Play is split into modules, in which a set of relevant commands are grouped into, and these docs will provide a rundown of each module and their associated commands in a top-down approach.
Setting Up Gaius
When Play is in your server, you'll notice that no bot role is created in the bot's name. The very first task is to create and/or assign a role to Play if you want Play to give/remove reward roles. Some communities prefer to have a special bot role (for example, Bot City Gang) for a group of bots without the role that usually comes with a bot, so we keep that option available.
The only staff permission truly needed for Play is Manage Roles because it cannot assign reward roles otherwise.
The list below details the minimum needed requirements in order for Play to function properly:
- View Channels
- Manage Roles (for the Leveling module)
- Send Messages
- Embed Links
- Attach Files
- Add Reactions (for help messages)
- Connect (for VC xp)
- Use Voice Activity (for VC xp)
If a role is assigned to Play, it is very important that its highest role with the Manage Roles perm is higher than the highest role you want it to assign anyone and that it has the Manage Roles perm.
Changes Play's prefix used for commands
Make sure that Play's prefix is unique from the other bots.
>prefix !! | Changes Play's default prefix to !!
!!prefix prefix ! | This is a common mistake...the example below shows how to fix this.
prefix !prefix ! | Changes the above's prefix to !
Kicking/Banning any Gaius bot then bringing it back will NOT reset the prefix or any settings.
If you forgot your prefix or don't know what you have changed it to, then try the
!checkprefix command (by saying
If you get a weird prefix, such as
prefix !, and want to change it to
!, then do
prefix !prefix !
Play is separated into several modules and all modules are disabled by default, which means that in order to begin leveling setup or any other features, enabling the modules is the first step of the actual setup process through commands. This is so that only the features you want to have enabled for your server are enabled, and no more. The listed order of the modules below is in the order that they appear in the list subcommand for
Make sure that all modules you are want to enable for your server are enabled before proceeding onto the commands in the following pages, especially the leveling module.
