Tweak your Minecraft Options for better Survivaling!

Postby aCQQK13 » 31 Jan 2013, 16:25

Mod your MineCraft without Mods!

Windows:
C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft

Mac:
~\library\application support\minecraft

Open the options.txt file in it.

You will see all the options that you can do on minecraft plus a few more.

Probably the important ones are:

Code: Select all
heldItemTooltips:true
advancedItemTooltips:false
chatOpacity:1
pauseOnLostFocus:true


heldItemTooltips - The Name which appears above your hotbar when you scroll over it

advancedItemTooltips - Shows Durability and the Item ID (in a diff format (##NNNN/SS) where N is the main Id as a 4 digit number and if there are multiple IDs the /SS is the subID for it) Usefull to have without having tmi to check your id's.

chatOpacity - How opaque the chat box appears.

pauseOnLostFocus - If you TAB out of Minecraft, with this on it putsyou on the Pause Menu on Minecraft


So you can mess around with having those turned on/off so you can check the durability on your items to check how many long they have left. You could enable/disable the tooptip above the hotbar if you dont like it. You can Change the Opacity to 0 if you never want to see the chat box, or if you want it half as opaque do 0.5 for that option. If you want to keep an eye on Minecraft without having to be focused on it, use the pauseonlostfocus, make sure your not moving though as it keeps key presses held whilst you have lost focus too.

You can then save the text file and the next time you open Minecraft the options will be applied. If you are on it whilst doing this, you would have to restart your client. Its using your Vanilla capabilities to have extra modifications without mods :P

I know you can change chat Opacity in-game, but the advancedItemToolTips would be very helpful! Thanks! :)
