Better HUD
Better HUD gives you heaps of customization options for the in-game HUD: move around vanilla widgets, add or remove new widgets, and configure it all to your liking! Better HUD features a powerful positioning system to get everything just right, and plenty of tweaks for each widget.

Settings

To open the settings menu, the default key binding is U. This can be changed just like any other key, from Options... Controls... Miscellaneous. From the menu you have control over everything on screen, down to the crosshair. Enable or disable widgets, or click the options button for more options and positioning.

Configure Vanilla

In beta-1.4 and later (check the CurseForge project page!), vanilla elements can be moved and configured. Move around your hotbar, your health and hunger bars, and everything else. You can even turn off your health bar for extra-hard mode!

New Elements
Better HUD has a grand total of 40 configurable elements. There's an on-screen compass, armor status, item pickup tracker, blood splatters and many more. Mix and match to create your perfect HUD. Check the full list below:

I'm in the beta test stages of the next update for 1.12.2, which will be ported (or may already be compatible) with 1.13 soon after full release. If you want to test the 1.4 beta for 1.12.2 in the meantime you can do it here.

Hi, There is a issure when I use some shaders, like KUDA, Sildurs Vibrant Shaders.
If I use 'mob Info' ,'horse Info', 'breed Indicator', and point to animal, the screen will turn white or stuck.
But, SEUS is ok.
Can you fix it?

As of yet, there aren't any Minecraft Forge releases for 1.13, so I can't update further than 1.12.2 for now. Sorry for replying so late!

Hello, i am a new user of your mod, and i was wondering if there is a way for me to move the huds around and disable some. this is due to some things i dont actually need and somethings are in positions i dont like.
if there is a way to move modules around please tell me. :D loving the mod otherwise.

Something I would really like added is with the mob info it shows up super small, I would want an option to adjust the scale of it or make it show up the same size no matter the distance. it's hard to read even from 5 blocks away. or just an option to position it like everything else. Heck, an option to scale everything would be immensely helpful.

This mod is useless if you're unable to edit the positions of HUD that already exists. Why can't I move my hotbar around to a different spot on my screen?
  • jobicade

  • November 14, 2017, 12:18 pm
It's not a current feature of the mod. If I can maintain a completely stable version that Minecraft will play nice with in terms of graphics, I'll consider it.

Found a strange bug where mob info and horse info gives me an almost lsd effect on my screen and its stressing out my eyes! I have to turn it off or looking at a mob causes my screen to go fuzzy, partially freeze the frame, or cause weird colors to appear. Message me if you need more info! I will gladly help solve this issue if possible.
Would it be possible to add a HUD to measure farming development and at what stages of growth the crops are at?
can u give me the direct download link? the (Ad link removed) isnt working

  • August 1, 2017, 6:46 am
The mod is now in 1.12, download link is above
One question, that would be a nice feature. Would it be possible to "Limit" the amount of hearts shown on mobs like Withers or Dragon, so it doesn't create a huge wall of hearts?


Thanks.

This is implemented in the latest version (1.3.9)!
One question, for servers, this mod is Client only right? Or you need it server side also?
  • jobicade
  • Level 62
  • High Grandmaster Wizard
  • December 17, 2016, 12:15 pm
Almost all of the features of this mod are client-only. The only exception is the item pickup element, which requires that the mod be installed on the server as well and will be greyed out if it isn't.
May you make a version without the player locators for 1.7.10? I
  • jobicade

  • High Grandmaster Wizard
  • December 15, 2016, 2:14 pm
I don't know what you mean by player locators, but you can turn off any of the features of the mod using the in-game menu (press U in-game, by default).

Hey, I've been looking for a good hud mod, i can almost never find any, and I am overjoyed for this one. I do have a suggestion, could you make a cosmetic option to make the HUD look similar to the World of Warcraft? just the positioning, like the heath/food/armor in the top left etc...?

Can you make it so that you can drag and drop any HUD elements in the 1.7.10 version? i have a mod pack i`m making and the HUD really takes up a lot of space, oh cool mod by the way.
  • jobicade
  • Level 62
  • High Grandmaster Wizard
  • March 22, 2016, 1:07 pm
You can! The 1.7.10 version is 1.3.5, the 1.8 version is 1.3.7. Functionally they work almost exactly the same.

That's not an option in the current version. I'll think about doing it in the future, but with a full set it would take up quite a lot of space on-screen.

  • jobicade

That menu holds default Forge options. the options for this mod are different, so I don't think I can use it. I haven't seen a single mod that actually uses that menu before.

I have downgraded the latest version, 1.3.2, so it now has a version for both 1.8 and 1.7.10, since a lot of people seem to still be using 1.7.10.
