Batty’s Coordinates PLUS Mod 1.8/1.7.10/1.7.2/1.6.4/1.6.2
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 has a number of display modes that present this information, and more, discreetly in a corner of the main game screen, so you don’t have to leave F3 open to see them.
In Mode 0 the Coordinates are hidden.
Mode 1 shows the X, Y and Z coordinates, and it also indicates the direction that you are facing, in compass-direction terms.
Mode 2 adds an indication whether your X and Z coordinates will Increase or Decrease if you move in the direction you are facing.
Mode 3 also shows the Biome that you are currently in, displayed below the coordinates.
Mode 4 replaces the normal X, Y and Z coordinates with Chunk information:
This shows which Chunk you are in, and which Block within that Chunk
The display appears with the Chunk being denoted by a ‘c’ and the Block by a ‘b’, for example:
*X = Block 9 within Chunk -10 *Z = Block 0 within Chunk 0
Batty’s Stopwatch Timer
A discreet timer tucked away in a corner of the screen, that you can hide, reappear, stop, start and zero using key presses.
Can be used to time activities in-game. Useful for speed challenges.
Shows the time passed in hours, minutes and seconds.
Colour-coded so you know at a glance if it is stopped or running.
From version 1.7.2_2.5.0 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:

You can customise the colours in which Batty’s Coordinates and Timer appear on the screen.
This done by creating a small file called BatMod.properties in your .minecraft folder.
If this file is not present, the displays all appear in the default colours.
The following lines are permitted in the file:
- Coords.shade = <true or false>
- Coords.chars.Increase = <any character>
- Coords.chars.Decrease = <any character>
- Coords.colours.TitleText = <colour from the list>
- Coords.colours.PosCoordText = <colour from the list>
- Coords.colours.NegCoordText = <colour from the list>
- Coords.colours.PosChunkText = <colour from the list>
- Coords.colours.NegChunkText = <colour from the list>
- Coords.colours.CoordText = <colour from the list>
- Coords.colours.CompassText = <colour from the list>
- Coords.colours.BiomeText = <colour from the list>
- Timer.shade = <true or false>
- Timer.colours.Stopped = <colour from the list>
- Timer.colours.Running = <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
NOTE 3: You can choose the character that indicates whether your coordinates are increasing or decreasing in the X or Z directions. By default these are ‘+’ and ‘-‘, but by use of Coords.chars.Increase or .Decrease you can substitute another character.
NOTE 4: You can choose the colours that the Chunk Coordinates display, positive and negative
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 BatMod.properties file:
Batty’s Coordinates PLUS! mod makes changes to these Minecraft internal classes:
It also adds its own class:
It will conflict with any other mods that you install which modify the same classes.
Optifine does not touch these classes, and so should be completely compatible.

- delete the META-INF folder
