Inspired by Portal 2, this mod brings the Ping tool into Minecraft
This mod attempts to replicate that feature in a useful way, but ensure it actually has use in the Minecraft world.
Using Ping is incredibly simple. Both the server and client must have it installed (though clients without it will still be able to play, they just won’t receive Pings). To send a Ping, simply hold down the F (V as of 1.9) key, and select a ping type by either mousing over it and releasing F (V as of 1.9), or by clicking on it. A Ping will then be sent to everyone in the current dimension who has 1) Chosen to receive Pings, and 2) Is in range of your Ping.(range can be modified in the config file). If a Ping is offscreen, a small icon will render on the side of your screen, pointing to it.
Feel free to use Ping in any kind of modpack, as long as you link back to this page and don’t make any money of the modpack.
