Updated on May 10

Changelog (v3.0):

Thank you for your continued support and use of my add-on. This update includes new useful features, bug fixes, and further enhancements:

  • Added effects renderer:
    • This will now show the status effects of the entity you are looking at
    • Effect name, duration, and amplifier are shown on the display
    • Up to three can be displayed at a time with full information, and the UI automatically collapses the view into an icon-only grid when there are 4 or more effects afflicted on the target entity
  • Added armor renderer when displaying players
  • Overhauled display tags:
    • Added a new block tag that lists blocks that can only be obtained via commands
    • Entities will now display tags as well that correspond to their eccentric properties (e.g., if the entity can be tamed, ridden, climb walls, etc.)
    • Corrected the way they are displayed in the UI and will now anchor properly alongside other display elements
    • Implemented proper separation for entities, blocks, and global tags
    • Improved data reading and allowed for ignoring values prefixed with `!`
  • Updated block identifier values to 1.20.80 (thanks to Herobrine643928)
  • Tweaked codebase for improved readability and efficiency
  • Fixed an issue whereby blocks would not display on the screen for versions 1.20.80 and above
  • Fixed incorrect tags being displayed on certain objects with similar identifier substrings
v2.3 / April 23 / Old Update

Changelog (v2.3):

  • Updated to support Minecraft 1.20.80
v2.2 / March 31 / Old Update

Changelog (v2.2):

Thank you for your valuable feedback and continued support. This update aims to resolve issues that were present in the previous version:

  • Improved entity icon display โ€” you can now be able to see a live rendering of the entity on the top screen, and this will also now work for custom mobs!
    • Removed image files that were used for portraits, thereby reducing file size of the Add-On
    • Players will now be rendered on the display, including any attachables they have worn (such as armor with their applicable trims, and items in main hand and offhand)
    • Due to this change, however, some inanimate entities may not render on top of the screen anymore. These are but not limited to the following entities:
      • Minecart
      • Minecart with Chest
      • Minecart with Hopper
      • Minecart with TNT
  • The health of the entity will no longer render if its maximum health is at extreme levels
  • Tweaked the offset of the tooltip, tailored for smaller devices
  • Fixed an issue whereby the namespace text will only remove the first instance of the underscore. This fix should also now remove all underscores in the namespace text
  • Fixed entities not updating properly when afflicted with poison or wither damage
  • Fixed tooltip flashing out when hitting an entity just to update it
