Better HUD is a mod which currently adds in 28 new elements to the HUD while in-game. Each can be enabled or disabled, and most can be moved or customised. Any bugs reported are kindly appreciated. If you have a crash, it's a good idea to include a crash report in [ spoiler ] tags to report it.
Blood splatters: When you're hit, blood splatters will show up on your screen. They fade away over time. Modes: Sparse, Normal, Dense, Denser.
Compass: Shown at the top of your screen, the compass shows you which direction you're facing. Modes: Simple, Fancy, Fancier.
Coordinates: Shows your coordinates at the top of the screen (above the compass). Modes: Spaced or Together. Spaced coordinates have a space between each coordinate, together are all linked.
Enchantment Indicator: Shows you when you can enchant (above your XP bar). Displays as an enchanted book.
Equipped Info: Shows what armour and tool you're holding, and displays the damage of each item. Modes: Tool, Armor or Both.

Modes: Text left, Visual Left, Text Right, Visual Right. Text mode adds text to the left or the right containing the text on the sign, and visual mode shows an actual sign on the GUI with text.

Water Drops: Displays water droplets that trickle down the screen whenever it's raining, or you've just jumped out of water.
Item Pickup: Shows text and item icons of items you've just picked up on the screen. It counts how many items you've picked up, but if you don't pick up any for a while, it'll fade away and reset the counter.
The default key to open the HUD configuration menu is U. This can be changed in the controls settings, under "Miscellaneous". Each can be turned on or off and modified.
1.2.1 for 1.8 is mostly a bugfix update for 1.2. A full list of changes is available via the changelog link below.
If your game crashes while starting up, you may have to delete your configuration file!
1.2.2 for 1.8 adds two new elements: Water Drops and Item Pickup. Both of these are requested features. Also in this update is a fix for a lighting bug which was affecting the chat box.
Water Drops, suggested by XXwardXX, adds water droplets that trickle down the screen when it's raining, just like on a window. It also adds droplets to the screen when you get out of water.
Item Pickup, suggested by TheBlueKing, will show you what items you're picking up, and how many. it will show the icon and name of the item somewhere on the screen (configured using the settings menu). Over time, if you haven't picked up a type of item for a long time, it will fade away and disappear, at which point the counter for that item resets.
1.3 for 1.8 adds a new element, System Clock, and a complete overhaul of the options system - you can now customise each element a whole lot more. Along with this new options system, you can now absolutely position elements!
1.3.1 for 1.8 fixes several bugs, as well as adding the option to show blocks as icons on Block Viewer. You can also now choose a maximum distance for mob info, breeding info, horse info, and block viewer. Some other settings have been added, too.
1.3.2 for 1.8 adds in snapping for movable elements, so you can align them easier. It also adds colors for certain text-based elements, like Light Level, Biome etc. so you can color them however you want.
1.3.2a-d are mostly bugfix updates, fixing things like crashes, errors in saving and loading settings, a few rendering bugs and so on.
1.3.6 fixes item pickup to work on servers. Note: You must install the mod on both the client and the server.
1.3.9 for 1.12 1.3.9 for 1.11 1.3.8 for 1.9.4 and 1.10.2 1.3.8 for 1.9 1.3.7 for 1.8.9
That's really cool, especially the sign bit. I don't think I've seen that before

Just a suggestion: maybe add a feature that indicates what liquid you're looking at (especially with mods like T-construct and various others that have their own liquids). But yea, this mod looks amazing!
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
Looks like a very promising HUD mod.
The block names of certain blocks are not formatted correctly(tile.blockname.name). From my usage: Dirt, Coloured hardened clay, slabs, extended piston head, repeater, comparator, sand, red sand, cobble wall, mossy cobble wall, sapings.
Will also be great if elements would auto align based on what else is enabled to not have random empty spaces(e.g. Potion display/fps aligning to top if equipped info is not enable, heal indicator aligning closer to hotbar if food and health stats it disabled)
More configuration options for
Potion display such as:
-Disable effect level
-Having a bar similar to the armour, but smaller below each icon
-Location next to hotbar
Equipped info, maybe split the hand and armour into saperate modules:
-Disable armour name
-Disable durability text
-Smaller bar for durability(below icon)
-Disable item icon
-Disable text(Just the durability bar)
-Rounded cordinates(No decimal points)
Seeing as this is the first version, this mod looks like it will turn out very well.
ps That is the nicest compass I have seen in a HUD mod!
Thanks for the feedback!
Firstly, I really have no idea why some block names simply aren't localised, it's very unusual. While testing in 1.8, I found that all block names are localised properly without me changing any of the code...
I'm not sure what you men by your second point, as the system should already automatically align things based on what other elements are enabled. Not having equipped info enabled should move all other elements on the left side up to the top, for example.
I really like your ideas for new settings, I'll be happy to add them when I can.
