Health Bar

White Cover

Cool health bars above mobs' and players' heads, a must-have for RPG and PvP servers! No Spout required. Everything is customizable, you can use permissions and even create your personal health bars.

Quote from filoghost:

In 1.8+, Health Bar won't work anymore. This happened because of a change, that basically removes the tag CustomNameVisible. I wrote an open letter to Mojang asking to re-add the tag, please share this link to make them read it!

Health Bar
Configuration Customize! Commands Permissions API Github

  • Customize the text over a mob head (name, health and max health)!
  • Customize the health bar for players, prefix + suffix, on the name tag, and for players (see the customization page)
  • Option to always show health bars
  • Health bars disappear after a configurable time
  • No Spout or client mods required
  • Easy drag and drop install
  • World selection for mobs and players
  • Will notify the console when an update is released on bukkit dev (on reload) and players with permission
  • Shows amount of health below the player's tag (With configurable name, no health bars there. Why?)
  • Shows on custom named mobs and restores the name after the bar has disappeared.

  • EpicBoss Gold Edition (set hooks -> epicboss: true)
  • ScoreboardStats
  • MobArena (set override-other-scoreboard: true)
  • McMMO (use the latest version, it will be fine)

    Is there support for the FeatherBoard plugin? And if there isn't do you think you could support it? :)

    Delete the scoreboard.dat file in the world folder.

    Hey, hopefully some of you can guide me in the right direction here. We had this plugin installed a while back, but it was removed. However, the 0 % health is still stuck with us and I am not sure why. Looking through the server files I cannnot find any traces of the plugin, but the formatting of the bar leads me to believe it's somehow stuck with us from this plugin.

    Have any others had similar issues? Any ideas on how I can go about removing it?

    In 1.8, we have player health shown as 10♥, and mob health shown as a just a number. Death messages from pvp kills show up perfectly fine, but when players are slain by monsters, the "was slain by" message remains the colour of the players heart, and the mob name displays "number:mobname". Could you sort that colour issue and display the mob name as either "number♥: mobname" or just "mobname"?

    EDIT: Example

    Tab keeps going crazy, player names jumping everywhere even though we have health bars on tab disabled.

    We can not edit the variable for showing a mount of health (PLAYERS ONLY). We can not display a monster health below the health values.

    Can't change color code of 20 (PLAYERS ONLY).
