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.
