MiniHUD Mod 1.17.1/1.16.5 – “Mini F3” HUD

minihud minecraft mod

MiniHUD Mod 1.17.1/1.16.5 is a client-side mod that allows displaying various “info lines” on the screen (“mini-F3”). The alignment (screen corner), background and text color and font size are configurable.
Note: This is a client-side-only mod! You can’t put it on a server.


The mod also has various “overlay renderers”, such as:

  • Structure Bounding Boxes (These only work in single player, without a server-side mod! Currently the only server-side mods that send the data in a format that MiniHUD knows about are Servux and QuickCarpet. If you have FabricCarpet, then you also need Servux.
  • Spawn Chunks.
  • Light Level overlay with markers and/or numbers (configurable).
  • Region File Boundaries.
  • Random Tick range.
  • Shapes: A mob Despawn Sphere, plus 24 and 32 block Spawn Spheres, a generic configurable radius Sphere, a Circle/Cylinder. More shapes are also planned.
  • Block Grid.
  • Mob spawn algorithm chunks range (< 1.14 only, in 1.14+ it’s the same as the random ticked chunks).
  • Height map (used by the mob spawn algorithm).

The mod also adds hotkeys for toggling on/off the vanilla debug renderers for blocks collision boxes, heightmap, entity path finding etc.
The displayed information lines can also be toggled on/off with hotkeys, and the HUD itself can be toggled ON and OFF.

Generic info:

  • The default in-game config menu hotkey is H + C
  • The default on/off toggle key is H
  • You can provide the world seed for MiniHUD (only used for the Slime Chunks info line and overlay) in multiplayer either by running the vanilla /seed command if you have the permission, or you can give it manually with a regular chat message in the form minihud-seed 12345. In single player the mod grabs the seed directly.

Key combinations:


The mod’s main rendering toggle key is by default H.
The in-game config menu hotkey is by default H + C.

Recent MiniHUD versions that use Malilib:

For the more recent versions of MiniHUD that use malilib, all the hotkeys are in MiniHUD’s own in-game config menu, which by default opens with H + C.

Old Forge versions of MiniHUD:

For the old Forge versions of the mod, the keybinds can be changed in the vanilla Controls menu.

For the old Forge versions:

  • Toggle Mode key (by itself): Toggle the HUD state ON/OFF.
  • Toggle Mode key + “info key”: Toggle ON/OFF the different pieces of information (the keys can be set in the mod configs).



There are a few things that can be adjusted either via the in-game configuration menu or in the configuration file.

  • The information to be displayed on the Info Lines HUD
  • Font scale factor
  • The font and backgrond colors
  • Whether to use a font shadow in the text rendering
  • Whether to use a background color for the text
  • Whether to sort the displayed information lines by their length
  • Whether to reverse the above mentioned sorting order
  • Whether to use a custom format string for the coordinate line, and the format string to use
  • Multiple options to configure the Light Level overlay
  • The colors of all the overlay renderers

Note: The custom format string for the coordinates has to have three float number format specifiers.
An example of that would be “X: %.1f Y: %.1f Z: %.1f” (without the quotes) to give an output like: X: 1234.2 Y: 64.0 Z: 4321.7.
