Subtitle Color Highlights is a resource pack that gives important subtitles a highlight color to make them stand out better. Noteworthy sounds that indicate an uncommon event or potential danger are highlighted in green. Critical sounds that indicate immediate danger are highlighted in light purple.

All 121 in-game languages are supported by this resource pack. The subtitle colors should still contrast well with the subtitle background, and in all major types of color-deficient vision.

Subtitles get highlighted in green when:
- a friendly creature* (excluding Bats, Squids and Fish) gets hurt or dies
- a friendly creature warns the player (Parrot imitating a hostile mob, Cat hissing at Phantoms, Horse neighing...)
- a friendly creature or Conduit attacks another mob (Fox hunting Chickens, Axolotl hunting fish...)
- a mob transforms (Zombie Villager, Piglin, Mooshroom...)
- a Bee enters or leaves a hive
- a hostile creature** makes an ambient sound
- a projectile is shot/thrown, a Shulker bullet explodes, an arrow hits a player
- Redstone activates (pressure plates, tripwire, Sculk Sensors...) or a dispenser fires
- fire or lava crackles/pops, or a flint and steel is used
- thunder resonates
- an item or anvil breaks
- a Totem of Undying activates, a bell reveal raid mobs, an End Portal opens, water/lava drips into a cauldron, dripleaf tilts up

* the"friendly creature" sound category: passive mobs as well as Bees, Dolphins, Iron Golems, Llamas, Pandas, Polar Bears, Pufferfish and Wolves
** the "hostile creature" sound category: hostile mobs as well as Endermen, Piglins, Zombified Piglins, Spider and Cave Spider

Subtitles get highlighted in light purple when:
- a hostile or neutral mob is angered, attacks the player, or uses a dangerous ability (Creeper hissing, Pufferfish inflating, Enderman teleporting...)
- a zombie destroys a door, Turtle egg, or infects a Villager
- lightning strikes, TNT fizzes, something explodes
- an anvil or pointed dripstone lands, dripleaf tilts down
- Thorns prick
- a Raid starts

Genuinely came here to comment something about how it probably only covers one type of colorblindness but wow. This is genuinely amazing. I have a lot of resource packs in my game to make my colorblind life easy but this? This is the best one. Thank you for making it accessible.

Thank you! I did a lot of trial and error to figure out what colour combinations would be clearly legible and easily distinguishable across most kinds of colour-defficient vision. I'm glad this pack can make the game more accessible not just to people with normal vision.

I made a updated version for 1.19 for those who are interested in it as much as me, feel free to do whatever.
I also added redstone updates, armor/weapon/projectile/horn usage & block updates as "green"
and burning/item damage, projectile hit & generic player hurt/death/drowning as "red"

I'll do my best in keeping the link up but can't promise :p

After a lot of testing, I figured that adding that much colour variety just ended up making subtitles more confusing. 3 colours (default white, green and magenta) seems to be the sweetspot for adding enough contextual information without being overwhelming visually.
A more appropriate way to implement what you're suggesting could be custom icons (such as showing the mob's face next to its name).

Can you make potential danger orange and immediate damage red? It's easier to identify with those colours

I made the captions light green and light purple because those colours were the most easily distinguishable and identifiable for most people. I don't really want to have to do multiple versions of the same pack with different colour variations, when the one I landed on is hopefully the optimal solution for a majority of people.
