If you’ve ever wanted the infamous motion tracker from aliens in another game, then you are in luck!
The Aliens Motion Tracker Mod adds the tracker to Minecraft, where you can use it to detect any danger in your proximity. It is placed in the upper right corner of the screen, and it tracks any motion in the direction you are facing.
It is also configurable (default key for opening the menu for the tracker is “k”, can be changed in control settings), where you can chose what it should track, turn the sound on or off (yes, the well known sound the tracker makes is also included in the mod), turn the tracker on and off and so on.
The tracker is very handy for when exploring darker areas and caves, places where you never know where the danger may strike from, and it helps prevent you from getting attacked from the sides (but not from your back, so watch it).
As the mod is an UI element, it doesn’t need to be crafted or anything either, simply install the mod and the tracker is activated (unless you remove it or deactivate it in-game, using the mods menu).
The mod requires either Minecraft Forge or FML standalone in order to function, so be sure you have installed one of those before installing this mod.
Aliens Motion Tracker Mod is a well crafted mod that doesn’t seem to have any issues, its easy to install, works fine and as advertised, and it is all-around a pretty decent mod, if you want some kind of motion tracking device in your game.
