  • 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.

This plugin is compatible with:

  • Damage Indicator Holograms
  • Colored Tags
  • EpicBoss Gold Edition (set hooks -> epicboss: true)
  • ScoreboardStats
  • MobArena (set override-other-scoreboard: true)
  • McMMO (use the latest version, it will be fine)
  • Citizens (you can't turn off the health for citizens, under the name, because it's displayed on all the human entities)
  • Permission Health
  • Sentry for Citizens (v1.3.7+)
  • Heroes (use latest version)

Not compatible with:

  • NametagEdit - may crash players, alternative plugin: Colored Tags
  • Other plugin that uses the scoreboard (but if the use the main scoreboard, you can try to turn off permission and world disabling to make them compatible)
  • TagAPI (It could make players show 0 HP and hide team names; works with mob health bars)

    Bug found, potentially caused in conjunction with "StackableItems" (haven't tested,) when you hit a horse while crouching and the healthbar shows up, if you quickly open the inventory and wait until the HB disappears, you can place any object in the saddle slow and it will behave as a functional saddle.

    Hello, i have a problem...

    I really love ur Plugin, its very awesome, im using it on almost every server i have :D

    But, if i want to use it with EpicBoss i have a problem... I'm using EpicBossRecoded, because EpicBossGoldEdition isnt working with my Spigot 1.7.10Jar... I also tried some othe new Craftbukkit jars, but i always get an error when im using EpigBossGoldEdition.

    It would be very nice if u could creat an hook to EpicBossRecoded.

    btw, sry for my bad english :D ps. would be very nice if u could do me this favour :)

    EDIT: You have to activate itin the configuration of ScoreboardStats and download ProtocolLib. Event I am logging a warning message, most of the users forget it.

    As madtomic said ScoreboardStats is now compatible with HealthBar.

    BTW ConfigurableMessages isn't compatible with HealthBar since version 0.9.9 One user noticed that and I can accept that.
