Minecraft has many different items to collect, which can easily fill up your inventory. Managing what types of materials you’ve gathered can become overwhelming, especially if you’re mining. This may lead players to search for solutions to the scenario, which likely ends up being mods. Luckily, anyone can better know what items they’ve looted with the Pick Up Notifier, a Forge and Fabric modification. Using this in your Minecraft world will display all materials you collect, and even show experience orbs. It’s highly customizable, meaning these pop ups can be rearranged or controlled in other ways. This is considered a quality of life mod to enhance the game, not the gameplay directly. With this in mind, let’s learn how to install and use the Pick Up Notifier on Minecraft in this Apex Hosting tutorial.
How to Download
In addition to downloading the main mod, you’ll want Puzzles Lib too since this is a dependency.
- Head towards Pick Up Notifier and Puzzles Lib on CurseForge, then press
Filesat the top.
- Scroll down to “Recent Files” and click
View Allto the right of it.
- From here, press
All Versionsnear the top right and select your desired version.
- Locate the exact type you want, then click it and press the
- Save each mod file somewhere easily accessible on your computer for the installation.
- Open the Minecraft launcher and navigate to the
- Find your installed Forge or Fabric instance and click the
Foldericon to the right.
- Enter the
modsdirectory from the newly opened window, then drag and drop the files into it.
Important: If you’re unable to see the “mods” folder in your MC launcher files, then create it before proceeding.
- Return to the launcher and click
Playon the correct profile to load the mods.
If you’re wanting to have older game versions with this mod on Fabric, please download them here. The same installation process applies to these and other modifications. Ensure that your launcher profile supports what you chose though, as that will be problematic if it’s not compatible.
Upon installing the mod on your launcher, try picking up items to see them appear in the bottom right corner. This is enabled by default, which includes rare material colors and experience orbs. The size of the text and its icons are determined by the
GUI Scale in your
Video Settings. Although, this and other customization options are configurable in the mod’s file. Editing these settings will be what most players do, as most features from Pick Up Notifier are found here. Following this, review the sections below to gain a better understanding of the mod to get started.
Due to the mod being installed locally on your launcher, the files are in the main game directory. It’s straightforward to locate and edit, but we’ll walk you through the required steps to do it. Some options you may change are item icons, positions, and its text color. Other ones may include blacklisting materials from being listed by the mod, among other features. We’ll break down popular and important settings to help you customize Pick Up Notifier.
- Close down Minecraft and open its launcher, then head towards
- Locate your modded profile, then press the
Foldericon to open the files.
- From here, search for the
configdirectory and enter it.
- Once inside, find the pickupnotifier-client.toml file and edit it with Notepad++ or another program.
- Save any changes you made, then
Playwith the correct profile from the launcher to confirm it works.
Now for the possibilities you can have with Pick Up Notifier, such as custom text color or different positions. The exact settings for these can either be simple or complex, depending on how you edit the file. For our sake, we’ll focus on the simplistic method to edit the mod.
Sometimes, the default white color can be difficult to read in-game, so changing the text color might be worthy to consider. In this example, we’ve made all normal materials appear as “RED” for the
default_color setting in the pickupnotifier-client.toml file. The rare items, such as beacons or enchanted books, won’t be changed since they’re controlled by the
ignore_rarity option. Setting this to “true” will make them follow the default color instead.
If the mod’s display is problematic, then switching the position may help. This is useful if you have other mods overlaid on top of your game or simply want to move it. Inside the config file, change the
screen_corner setting to any of the following values:
BOTTOM_RIGHT. These will make the in-game display change sides to the one you choose.
In cases where you don’t want item icons, editing the
draw_sprites option to be “false” is required to remove them. This is another different format you and others can use in-game, but most keep sprites enabled. It all depends on what other settings you customized, as the icons could be an eye-sore if you made the text bright colors.
Mod Isn’t Working
After installing the Pick Up Notifier mod, make sure that the game was closed and reopened with the correct profile. Modifications require a full restart of Minecraft to begin working, plus it’s helpful to avoid unwanted problems. Although, you need to have Puzzles Lib for everything to work. However, if everything is installed on an incompatible Forge or Fabric instance, then that’ll result in failure. Ensure you have the right game version for both mods and build you want.
File Won’t Save
The configuration file will only save if you manually do that in your editing program, but also requires a game reboot. It’s best to shut down Minecraft before making any changes to the mod, then you can save and restart to see if that works. In rare cases, if the file’s format or invalid values are present, then it will likely reset the configuration or simply not work properly. Make sure you’re entering the right options and following proper formatting.
