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.

  • ScoreboardStats
  • MobArena (set override-other-scoreboard: true)

    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).

    Cauldron 1.7.10 Apparently its not showing mob name. Style options not working always defaults to green Squares. Text mode is 20/20 HP white, no color custom text mode color only works with % health. Might want to add the 20/20 Hp color feature not just % in the custom config.

    Hey the bug with the CustomNameVisible is now fixed, you can continue the development of the plugin without problem.

    Project "SurvivalWars" coming soon and aims to be the best RPGMMO minecraft server.

    Since the author of this plugin has stopped supporting it because they claim it cannot work in 1.8, I would like to take it over and continue developing it. I have been using this plugin on my 1.8 server for some time now with no problems whatsoever. Before I do this, I would like filoghost's permission to do so.

    Could you add mcCombatLevel to the compatible plugin list?

    Please try with 1.8.2-pre4 and above, Mojang re-added the custom name visible tag! :D Edit: sorry, I was wrong.
