In battles with mobs, there is not enough detailed information about their health and damage done. This function is not provided in Minecraft, but it can be easily fixed using the Damage Indicators mod.
This mod works very simply. You just need to hover a cursor over a mob or player in multiplayer, and detailed information about it will be displayed in the upper right corner. The indicator is looking like HP bars in RPG games. It displays the portrait of the mob, the current and maximum level of health, as well as the damage and current effects. Damage Indicators will allow you to better assess the strength before the battle. It is especially relevant when playing with other mods that add new mobs.
How to install Damage Indicators mod
- Make sure you have installed Minecraft Forge.
- Download the mod for your version of the game.
- Put it in the ‘mods’ folder, which is located in the game folder.
