Damage Indicators Mod – Minecraft 1.7.4, 1.6.4 and 1.6.2

Damage Indicators Mod – Show how much damage you dealt to a mob with this mod!

Overview of this Mod

The combat system in Minecraft is fairly primitive. By that, I mean, you don’t really know how much health the mob you’re fighting has, and that you’ll end up wasting time ensuring that the mob you’re fighting dies. Don’t get me wrong, the combat system is nice and does add some difficulty into the game (any Minecraft player can mask the amount of health he has, meaning that you have to treat all players as if they were at full health), but it would be nice to know how much health a mob has left. Hence, the Damage Indicators Mod. The Damage Indicators Mod is a mod for Minecraft that makes it so you can see the exact amount of health a mob has, just by looking at it, or targeting it by hitting it at least once. Once you do that, said mob will appear on the top left of your screen, complete with the amount of health it has, whether it’s passive or hostile, and the potion effects that are currently on that mob. This mod is incredibly useful for survival. Imagine running around a forest in the middle of the night because you decided that you wanted to reenact a scene in your favorite TV show, but then, you get flanked by tons of zombies all of the sudden. Knowing this would happen, you throw a potion of poison, and poison all of them. Unfortunately, you poison yourself as well. Without this mod, you could end up dying because you might pick a fight with a zombie that wasn’t inflicted with poison. All in all, this mod is pretty nice, and is recommended for anyone who would like to be able to see how much damage they deal, along with being able to see the remaining health of their opponents.

So you want to install a mod for Minecraft? Well, thanks to this guide, it’s easy as 1-2-3! Before we start however, here are some precautions you might want to read:

  1. Be sure to get WinRAR or 7-zip. It’s a necessity for installing mods.
  2. Be sure to backup your “minecraft.jar” before doing anything! We don’t want you to have to force update now, do we?
  3. Be sure to delete META-INF inside “minecraft.jar”.
  4. Be sure to install the mods listed in the yellow box below first. They are usually mods required for the mod you want to install to work.
  5. The Forge and Modloader installation instructions only apply if the yellow box below states that the mod requires either Modloader of Forge. If the yellow box does not, use the “Old-Fashioned” instructions.
  6. The Forge and Modloader instructions only apply to the mod itself. Any mod in the yellow box below must be installed using the “old-fashioned” instructions.

Minecraft 1.6.4 and 1.6.2 changed the way mods are to be installed now. So much, that it’s best to have a full blown guide page for this, rather than quick instructions. Click the link below for the guide:

Here’s the steps to installing that mod you want, or how to install Forge, Modloader, :

  2. Open up Windows Explorer.
  3. In the navigation bar, type “%AppData%”.
  4. Navigate to “Roaming”. (Skip this step if you can’t see a roaming folder.)
  5. Open up a folder called “.minecraft”.
  6. Open up a folder called “bin”.
  7. Right click the file called “minecraft” or “minecraft.jar”.
  8. Select open with.
  9. Open with WinRAR.
  10. Open up the mod. (be sure to extract the mod first.)
  11. If there are no specific instructions included with the mod, it is safe to assume that you drag all the files in.
  12. Be sure to delete META-INF. I can’t stress this enough.

That’s it! Have fun!

So you have a Mac computer? The Mac Operating System has a very different framework compared to its Windows counterpart, so the installation instructions will be different. Here’s a video to help you out:

So you noticed this mod requires Minecraft Forge or Modloader, correct? Installing Forge and Modloader mods are just as easy as installing mods the old-fashioned way! In fact, it’s even easier once you get passed the main part Here’s the steps:

  1. Install Minecraft Forge, Modloader, or any mod dependency listed in the yellow box below using the “Old-Fashioned” installation instructions to the left.
  2. Start Minecraft up. Close Minecraft afterwards.
  3. Navigate to the “.minecraft” folder. Once you open it, you will notice that there is a “mods” folder. If there isn’t a mods folder to be seen, create one.
  4. Place the mod inside the “mods” folder.
  5. Open Minecraft up and have fun!

For the most part, that’s it when it comes to Modloader and Forge mods. Also, please note that you no longer have to do steps 1 and 2 once you already installed it the first time (you may need to reinstall them however, if you updated your client). Also, just a heads up, if you don’t see the mod loaded into the game, you might have to extract the mod into a folder.  Most mods work in their zipped form, but some require you to extract them first. Have fun!
