Server no longer needs to have to mod installed if using Minecraft 1.6 or later.
This is a little mod I made for myself back in 1.2.5(there is no 1.2.5 release, dont ask), and I quickly rewrote it for 1.4.2 as I think others would appreciate it too. It was originally thrown together as a fancy debugging tool, but it gives the game a bit of a... rpg feel, so I thought I would release it.
When anything living takes damage, the damage they took will bounce off their head, with a cool little effect.
Now shows the Mob portrait preview with current health when you mouse over mobs! Every registered Mob type(mod mobs too) can have this preview adjusted using config files, so full compatibility is easy.
Have a mob displaying incorrectly? Press period and click the Advanced button(or navigate to /.mincraft/config/DIAdvancedCompatibility/class.path.to.entity.cfg, open it with whatever editor you use) and descriptions for all the adjustments are listed.
Preview in action:
Do not like the new skin? Open up the repositioning GUI and turn it off(Period key(Fullstop) is default, rebind it in Controls).
Here is some screenshots of the repositioning GUI:

Damage Indicators [1.4.5]v1.1.6
Damage Indicators [1.4.2]v1.1.4
DamageIndicators [1.3.2] v1.0.1
Added a bugfix for mods that use entities that extend a living entity, but never actually register the entity, leading to a null pointer.
Fixed a rendering glitch with some mods due to a workaround to prevent name tags from rendering.
Added a different workaround that should universally disable nameplates but still allows all calls to execute.
The old mob rendering can be enforced by enabling the alternate rendering method option.
Added 2 new configuration options:
Alternate Render Method - This uses an alternate hook to render damage indicators, in case you have an incompatible mod installed.
High Compatibility Mod - This will perform additional resets to ensure higher compatibility with mods with leaking set attributes. This will, however, decrease performance, so use it only if you have problems.
Both of these options can be found in the Repositioning gui as well, so you do not even need to modify the config manually.
All of the gui's have been tweaked to fix a few lingering bugs from minecraft changes.
When in any of the guis, the mob or player displayed will follow your cursor around the screen.
Mouse overs in the advanced gui now work off of real time, and will not fail to fade in and out if you have a high framerate anymore.
Advanced Configurations cleaned up and now no longer exist inside it's own folder.
Entities are now sorted and categorized by the mod they belong to.
Added Configuration corruption detection and recreation to help prevent crashes related to data corruption.
Instead of creashing, you now will get a warning in the log, and the configuration is recreated(and consequently, reset unless it had been successfully read since the last time minecraft started).
Because of the massive changes and improvements, old entity specific configurations will be lost.
Fix for flicker when portrait vanishes.
Changed the portrait to hide based on a realtime clock, and not based on frame count. This will make the time the portrait vanishes consistent regardless of fps settings.
Added config option to hide Boss Health.
Fix for occational console spam on servers.
Fix for error on first time late entity registration.
Code cleanup and some performance tweaks.
Compatibility fixes with other gui mods.
Fixed a console spamming problem when on a server.
Fixed a missing entity texture spamming issue on clients.
