Name Pain

Recolor the nameplates of players & mobs for combat or cosmetic purposes. Color and opacity are configurable. Now you can see how your friends are doing and keep a better eye on your villagers and pets without extra visual clutter like scoreboards. All features are optional.

See the names of your tamed pets without looking directly at them,
and see the names of nearby mobs once they've been hit:
Tames Always Named + Injured Always Named

Villager names can be seen from all angles too, pairing nicely
with Village Names and Villager Names (Forge/Fabric):
Villagers Always Named

1.4.0 Configuration overview (requires Cloth Config and, for Fabric: Mod Menu):

If you just want to change nameplate coloring without health-based change, set all Min Health RGBA values equal to their corresponding Max Health RGBA values. If you want to hide nameplates from your screen, set each Alpha all the way down to 0.

Check your server's rules, if any, before using this mod in multiplayer. For example, Hypixel's rules are against player health indicators.
