You know those times when you just need to see the name of the mob to be sure about what it is, for example when a skeleton jockey glitches out and the spider disappears from underneath the skeleton and you don’t notice the double threat until it’s too late!
Well with this mod, you can actually see what the mob is called. All you have to do is press f10 and yes the general mish-mash about your x, y, and z levels will come up. But along with all that, you will notice a new addition: A label for what the mob is above its head.
As useful as it sometimes is, this mod is usually utterly pointless. If you are a good Minecraft player, then you should probably know what the mob is on sight anyway. I mean is it really necessary?
There are also a few glitches with this mod. Only one of which I will mention, and that is that when there is a mob taller than 2 blocks, the label will appear not above its head like expected but inside its chest. This happens with the enderman and the iron golems.
I’m not sure about how necessary this mod is but it is alright all the same.
Good job spacechase but I think this mod needs some finessing.
