ArmorHUD is a plugin that provides on screen information of your armor durability. This plugin has a soft dependency for Vault. If you do not wish to use permissions set the permission-system option in the Config file to none. This allows everyone on your server to use ArmorHUD.


  1. Download the .jar
  2. Copy it to your plugins folder
  3. Start the server
  4. Optional: Set up permissions


armorhud.useGives the player permission to use ArmorHUD
armorhud.reloadGives the player permission to use the /armorhud reload command


/armorhud onActivate the ArmorHUD
/armorhud offDeactivate the ArmorHUD
/armorhud alertActivate the ArmorHUD in Alert mode, only armor below 10% durability will show up
/armorhud autoActivate the ArmorHUD in Automatic mode, the HUD will only show up if you are wearing any armor
/armorhud reloadReloads both ArmorHUD config files. Operator status or armorhud.reload permission required for access to this command

    I realized today how it actually works I just would've wanted not to have number to show up in fixed-position but now I know, and I thought that fixed meant that you can't move the HUD.

    @Cnomesta: Go

    You have two options to arrange the values in the hud.

    By default they are ordered on highest armor value left. Your second option is to set fixed-position in the config to true. This keeps the armor values in a fixed position of helmet / chest / legs / boots.

    It's not possible to order the values more specific than that.

    Hey I wanted to ask is it possible to rearrange the equipment in the HUD or is it locked in to specific order?

    Anyhow beautiful mod.

    I don't remember if I've ever left a comment on this plugin. It looks gorgeous, it functions perfectly, and it's just something quite unique that not a lot of developers seem to do. Congratulations :D Keep up the great work

        Player 2008Choco = Jessica3224.getBoyfriend();

    I have released the other project we were working on: MCClans. This gave me some time to work on ArmorHUD again, hence the following update:

    Updated ArmorHUD to v1.10.

    • Added config option fixed-position. If this option is enabled ArmorHUD keeps the helmet, chest, legs and boots in a fixed position on the hud.

    ArmorHUD fixed-position

    • Overhauled how compatibility-mode works. ArmorHUD can now support multiple Bukkit versions at once. This means that from now on you should always use the latest ArmorHUD version, even if you are using the plugin with compatibility-mode enabled. Bukkit versions 1.8 through 1.8.8 are supported in ArmorHUD v1.10.
    • Fixed a crash reported in Ticket #8.
    • Added custom graphs to Metrics for a couple config options.

    I have also stopped sharing my brother's account and moved over to this one, if you were wondering.

    Are there plans to make this compatible with Spigot?

    Don't ever reload your server. It is really bad for it.

    Can you make it so that the HUD doesn't go away on a reload? Thanks!
