Full Bow Sight Mod for Minecraft 1.6.4/1.7.2

Ever wish you could predict where your arrows will land with perfect accuracy?  This Japanese mod, roughly translated to “Full Bow Sight”, is a sort of aim-hack for thrown items and bows in Minecraft.  Some may consider it cheating, but with this mod you will never have trouble aiming again!

 

There are four modes for Full Bow Sight.  They can be cycled through by pressing the Y key, and they will be displayed any time a bow or thrown item is equipped.  The first mode is pillar mode:

 

fullbow_aim1

 

In this mode, a black pillar rest on top of where the arrow will land if its flight is uninterrupted.  A shadow will be cast across the land leading from the player to the pillar.  This is best for close-range use as it does not obstruct the player’s view.

 

The second mode is clairvoyant mode:

 

fullbow_aim2

 

This mode displays where the arrow will land on a 3D display.  Using this mode is useful for making very long shots.

 

The third mode is minimap mode:

 

fullbow_aim3

 

This mode is an alternative version of the one before it, producing the same effect except using a flat 2D map to display the landing zone.

 

The fourth mode is simply the default Minecraft setting – no aid will be displayed.

 

Modes two and three can also be useful for exploring the surrounding area without venturing too far.

 

Each mode has a power gauge as well that displays how much the arrow is drawn back.  As this gauge fills, a circle will appear in the center of the screen.  Once it is completed, the arrow is at full power.  This can be enabled or disabled by pressing the U key.
