Batty's Coordinates for Forge


Please Note: This Mod was discontinued, replaced by the Batty's Coordinates PLUS Mod for Forge. See here for the new Mod.




See your Location at a glance

The X, Y and Z coordinates that locate the player's position in the world are normally displayed on the F3 Debug screen.

This mod displays them discreetly in a corner of the main game screen, so you don't have to leave F3 open to see them.

It also indicates the direction that you are facing, in compass-direction terms.

Bigger? Better?

If you like this mod but would like a few more features, why not check out Batty's Coordinates Mod PLUS! for Forge? - Coordinates, an inbuilt Stopwatch Timer, Biome reminder, and an indicator of how your coordinates will change when you walk.


From version 1.7.2_1.3.0 the Controls have been completely revamped

All controls use keys from the NumPad (Be sure to have NumLock set on!)

NOTE 1 Coordinates can appear:

  • Top Left
  • Top Right
  • Bottom Right

NOTE 2 All of the Control Keys are fully reconfigurable via the Options Menu in-game

NOTE 3 Screen locations and display modes are remembered when you quit Minecraft

Custom Colours

You can customise the colours in which Batty's Coordinates appear on the screen.

This done by creating a small file called in your .minecraft folder.

NOTE: Be very careful that the file is called and not especially if using Notepad to create it!

If this file is not present, the Coordinates all appear in the default colours.

The following lines are permitted in the file:

  • Coords.shade = <true or false>
  • Coords.colours.TitleText = <colour from the list>
  • Coords.colours.PosCoordText = <colour from the list>
  • Coords.colours.NegCoordText = <colour from the list>
  • Coords.colours.CoordText = <colour from the list>
  • Coords.colours.CompassText = <colour from the list>

NOTE 1: PosCoordText and NegCoordText can be used to distinguish positive and negative coordinates from each other by giving them different colours

NOTE 2: You can still use CoordText, and this will override anything you put in PosCoordText and NegCoordText

The full list of recognised colours:

(*Note* that you must type all of the entries exactly as they appear here - capitals and lowercase - or they will be ignored and the default colours will be used by the game)

So, for example, if you like all-white lettering and no shaded panel, make this file:
