The Widgets Mod!

Welcome to the offical forum post for the support of The Widgets Mod!. These Widgets are meant to make your Minecraft experience more enjoyable and generally more easy. For example, the "YouTube Widget" could have a tutorial running while you're playing Minecraft or it could be used for catching up to your favorite youtubers letsplay!

Another widget for this mod could be an image viewer for viewing your Minecraft blueprints with ease without the need to alt-tab out of game all the time. The idea for widgets are endless! Widgets could include:
  • A calculator
  • Notes (coordinates, To-Do?)
(More ideas coming)

Here is a mockup of what I mean, made in photoshop.

I'd get this mod. You'd just need to have a team behind it, as it would be a large amount of code and troubleshooting to create and do.

If it had a redstone simulator widget...
(And it was possible...)

Actually, I made this username a few years ago. I tried using Argon but it didn't work, so I went down the alphabet and chose the first letter that would be pronouncable. Aegon. Thank you for telling me this (I watch GoT but never noticed this!)


Anyways, seems like this thread blew up a little! \o/

I think my left ball just blew up.. This is amazing! Would make building tutorials a lot easier to watch while playing! Since the new launcher came out, it doesnt't seems to let me resize the window. Well it does, but after clicking on the window, it goes back to normal.

As a dual monitor user, I would be happy with just being able to move my mouse onto the other screen and click around without exiting full screen. But I would definitely use this mod either way! It sort of reminds me of the steam overlay Shift+Tab

Love this idea. Would love to see it become reality. I have no idea how to implement it, code it or anything. But I would totally download and use this mod alot.

As said before by numerous people, it would require a lot of coding, but if it was released I would definitely try it.

Good luck! :D
