directionhud mod directionhud mod for minecraft is one of those mods that should've been incorporated upon the game's release. It's an incredibly simple but necessary mod that gives you a heads up display compass across the top for your screen. Key Features The mod comes with an array of customizable settings many of which I found to be incredibly useful with my in game play.
You can set certain circumstances under which the compass will turn off, for example during in game chat, in anticipation of the compass cutting off part of your screen. Also you can set it to turn off when viewing the player list, only adding to thee convenience factor this mod has practically zero setbacks.
Why you need it.I feel as if this mod is a complete and utter necessity, I think we’re all familiar with how difficult it can be to pull out your map every time you need to check your directional orientation. The heads up display provides a simpler and less time-consuming alternative to the in game standard while at the same time not providing a drastic alteration to the gameplay. So if you’re one of those people who like their mind craft to stick to its roots, but still wouldn’t mind the convenience of an on-screen compass that I would recommend this mod. In conclusion the directionhud mod is one of the most helpful mods I’ve ever used, and I still use it to this day.
