About Health Bar

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!

  • 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)
