The Show Durability Mod for Minecraft gives the player the ability to view an items remaining durability with ease. This mod makes the hassle of figuring out the durability of a nearing end-of-life tool a thing of the past. Using the "Show Durability" option that this mod provides, the player is able to efficiently and simply view the current status of weapons, armor, and tools.
Before using this mod, the player is restricted to only being able to view the very hard to see bar underneath the item. To use this mod, the player simply hovers the mouse over the item they wish to check the durability for, and a small pop-up window displays the current stats.
