Level Hearts
The Best Alternative to More Health Enchanted

LevelHearts will add a completely unique experience to your Minecraft world. Based off of the original "More Health Enchanted", level up your health by gaining experience, or by searching around the world for heart containers and heart pieces. With plenty of configurable options, you can make your experience perfect for you.




I DO NOT give permission for anyone to clone, modify, or officially publish anything under the LevelHearts name, textures, or branding NOR do I allow ANYONE to use my code in ANY officially published works. HOWEVER, I DO give permission for people to fork my GitLab and ENCOURAGE people to contribute to, make, and publish EXCLUSIVELY ON GITLAB updated versions of my code until I return for compatibility with game versions ONLY. I also encourage these forks to be published on the ISSUES page of my GitLab, if you so desire to take this route.

Common Issues

Q: Is this compatible with [insert HUD-modifying mod here]?
A: Yes. In the configuration, disable the "LevelHearts HUD" option to revert to vanilla behavior. It is up to the HUD mods to be able to handle a large/modified amount of health.

Q: Will you please make a Fabric version?
A: No, I am not planning on making a Fabric version of this mod.

Q: How do I edit the starting health?
A: Please see the configuration options below. There are various health settings in regards to "starting" health. You're likely looking for the "Default Health" option.

Q: How do I edit the rarity of loot?
A: Unfortunately, I've never done this myself so I cannot be too much help. However, the loot tables are provided in the JAR and should be modifiable just like any other Minecraft loot table by using resource packs or data packs. The mod dynamically loads the JSON files upon world load, so it is not hard coded.

Q: Will you please make a version before 1.12 or for 1.13?
A: No.

You can use this in your modpacks for free as long as there is no paywall preventing LevelHearts features for free. No credit is required, but it is strongly preferred (and maybe hit me up with a message so I can check it out?)
