Neat Mod (Life Bar on Mobs)

Neat Mod 1.16.5/1.15.2 adds Unit Frames to the top of every entity. It allows you to see information on the life of each of the mobs as well as the bosses such as the Wither or the Dragon.



  • Fully client sided
  • Health bars only show up if the mob is not obstructed
  • Health bar color changes depending on the mob’s health % (green to yellow to red)
  • Shows the mob’s attribute (for Smite or Bane of Arthropods) and their armor
  • Groups up health bars for mob stacks (like spider of chicken jockeys)
  • Works with minecraft’s Scoreboard Teams. Mobs and players in teams will have a colored name.
  • Configurable (both in and out of game)
  • A keybind to toggle the health bars (as of -17)


That is a spin on Tidy Plates.
