5 USEFUL MINECRAFT MODS! – Top Minecraft Mods for 1.12 (#2)
Hey there! What’s going on guys?! So, as you may or may not know, I’ve been creating videos relating to mods for a couple of weeks now! Well, actually my first Minecraft mods video was the Fun mods video I made almost two months back. Well, I’m back again with 5 more Useful Mods for Minecraft 1.12… on Minecraft Java Edition. On the PC. With Forge. Okay, I think I covered all of that. There are so many different types of Minecraft these days it feels like you have to say everything you’re using in the video.
Anyways, I hope you find a mod that you may want to use from this video! They are all useful in different ways so we’ll see if you like them or not! Well, let’s go ahead and get started! *Music* The first mod I’m sharing with you today is the Durability Show mod. Durability Show is actually a pretty simple mod. It, well, it does what you’d expect it to do, show durability of tools and armor on your screen. You can toggle the mod by using H by default.
Pressing the toggle key on it’s own will open and close the GUI for the mod. Holding shift while pressing the toggle key will toggle the rendering of your character on screen. And holding control while pressing the toggle key will toggle the baubles functionality. There is obviously a lot of things this is useful for. In fact, it can be useful for anything between PVP and just basic survival. Obviously it’s important to know the durability in PVP but while mining in survival, it’s nice to know the exact durability of your pickaxe too.
Now that I think of it, this may be useful for some servers I play on. I don’t know if it would be useful on Teldaria or not with the custom enchantments. There are obviously probably going to some restrictions to this mod when it comes to things like that. And, of course, you need to make sure the servers allow this type of mod in their rules. Otherrwise you probably shouldn’t use it. Well, anyways, that’s the Durability Show mod. There are so many different Minecraft minimap and world map mods that it’s all about personal preference, really. In my last video, I showed Journey Map. I mentioned that JourneyMap is my personal favorite Minecraft map mod due to all the options it gives us to customize it and what not. Today, I’m showing you VoxelMap. VoxelMap has been around since at least 2014 and it’s been a popular choice for a minimap for a long time. There’s a lot that VoxelMap can do. First of all, it, of course, shows your surroundings and the world map allows you to see the entire world…
Or what has been explored at least. But there’s more to it than just that. It allows you to set per-dimension waypoints which is incredibly useful for modpacks with different dimensions. You can also teleport to the wapoints if you have permission to. There is a feature that allows you to output images with the Voxelmap Image OutPut processor that you can use if you’d like. There are also other features like mob icons on the map, nether mapping, optional chunk grids, biome overlay, and other customization features. So, perhaps this might be your preferred minimap or world map mod.
It’s obviously a great option and it’s a very useful mod. Just a note for those trying to install the mod, it requires you to use LiteLoader. So you’ll have to install that mod too if you’re wanting to use this mod. Just thought I’d let you know to save you some trouble of the mod not working correctly. The next mod I’m going to show you is a mod that makes my life so much easier.
You may not think it’s anything too crazy but for the types of videos that I create, this just makes things easier. Even if I’m just playing on a server or something, it makes my life easier. So, I personally like to play Minecraft fullscreen. In order to get the correct resolution size for videos on my computer monitor, I have to play fullscreen. Otherwise you’ll see black bars in the video, I don’t like that. Anyways, this mod has a long name. It’s called Fullscreen Windowed (Borderless) for Minecraft.. with Borderless in parenthesis. So it does pretty much what you’d expect. It puts Minecraft into borderless window so you can go fullscreen but it still functions like windowed mode. So, you can open chat and move your mouse cursor out of the game.
You can go the game menu, or pause the game, and again, move your cursor out of the game to another monitor. You can alt + tab out of the game smoothly… so for people who have a one monitor display, this is still a useful mod for you. And you can have other windows on top of the Minecraft client when it’s not active. So bascially, this makes Minecraft look like it’s fullscreen when you press F11. But it’s actually a borderless window.
It’s incredibly useful to use while doing things like listening to music while playing. You can easily move the cursor or alt + tab and skip a song. Or it’s useful for when I’m recording or streaming. I can easily go into a different monitor without disrupting my recording or stream to copy and paste something or look at a website or something. I find this mod to save me a ton of time and the hastle of having to leave fullscreen mode all the time so I figured maybe somebody out there could find this mod useful too.
The next mod is called Neat. Neat is a mod that is a sort of spinoff mod from the Tidy Plates Mod in World Of Warcraft. Tidy Plates enhances World of Warcraft’s nameplates. It provides a built-in API which can be used to create your own design and just enhances the floating health bars, or nameplates, in World Of WarCraft. Well, Neat, in Minecraft is a mod that does very much the same thing. Neat adds unit frames to the top of every entity in Minecraft. Neat is fully client sided and it is configurable.
With some basic knowledge on how to configure the mod, basically saying true and false and adjusting numbers, you can change the mod to your liking. Health bars in this mod will only show up when the mob is not obstructed so you won’t see the health bar through blocks which is nice. The health bar will change from green to yellow to red as it gets damaged. In addition to seeing health, you will also be able to see the entity’s attribute and armor and it works with Minecraft’s Scoreboard Teams. So there’s a lot that this mod will show you. And there’s a lot that you configure to the mod to make it to your liking. So we often see Minecraft take inspiration from other games. This time, we happen to see a Minecraft mod take inspiration from a World Of Warcraft mod. The final mod is one that you may not have really expected to see in this video but I found it to be something that’s actually quite interesting so I wanted to share it with you guys.
Nausea is a part of Minecraft. Yes, it’s annoying. And yes, it’s meant to be annoying. That’s the point of nausea. But many people dislike the vanilla nausea effect for reasons other than it just being annoying. For example, some people may end up actually feeling sick from seeing the effect or they get a headache while looking at it. Well, this mod allows you to replace the effect of nausea or just completely remove it. There are 4 different effects in this mod that you can choose from in the configuration. By default, the mod is set at effect number 1. This effect changes the nausea potion to effect your controls. It inverts your left and right key. Adding a bit of a challenge while having the nausea effect. The second option is inverting left and right AND inverting forwards and backwards. So even more of a challenge for you.
The third option, number 3, is that when you get nausea, your camera will slighlty tilt. So, instead of having the motion of nausea.. Your screen just looks tilted. The final option, which is number 0, will just make the nausea effect do nothing. This mod may not be something every one needs but I wanted to share it nonetheless because somebody out there is hating that nausea effect and what’s to change it. Perhaps also while giving themself a challenge in the process of removing it. So, that’s gonna do it for this one guys! Thank you all so much for watching! I hope that perhaps you found a mod that can be useful for you. As always, I tried to add in a selection of different types of mods into the video. Not just mods that are useful for PVP or mods that are useful for survival. I try to add in a selection of mods that maybe somebody could find at least one of the mods useful for whatever they are doing.
As always, if you want to see more mods, I have a few other videos featuring useful mods and fun mods for Minecraft 1.12! Compile the mods that you like and make a modpack out of them for yourself!
