Health Bars ModDecember 11, 2012 ❘ Minecraft Mods ❘ 15,752 views
Health Bars is exactly what it says on the tin, it’s a mod that adds health bars to entities, these are smart, and don’t render over blocks, so you can’t use them as X-Ray.
For simple usage Health Bars requires no type of configuration, however you can do the following:
The bars can be disabled by pressing ‘B’ (by default, configurable in Controls menu).
The bars have different stances depending on the entity’s status:
- Blue: Entity is neutral or friendly.
- Red: Entity is aggro towards the player.
- Green: Entity is poisoned.
There are limitations on when the bar will be rendered:
- The Entity can’t be at a distance of over 12 blocks (customize-able)
- The Entity can’t have over 75 hearts of health (customize-able)
- The Entity can’t be blacklisted (Read more in the configuration section).
SMP Info: The mod will work in SMP if the server host / lan game host has the mod installed, if they don’t, the bars will always display the same value.
The Configuration file for this mod is located in /.minecraft/vazkii/config/healthbars.cfg, it will only be there after you installed the mod(and Forge + Vazcore) and ran the game at least once.
