Custom Floating Text Addon

Floating text is a very useful feature for servers and maps. Unfortunately though, it’s mainly just available by coding third-party plugins or mods. This add-on gives you the ability to make custom floating text in your Minecraft worlds.

How does it work?

First off, you will need to obtain a name tag with the proper text which you want to display. For that you will need an Anvil and a Name Tag. In this case, I chose to name it “The Nether”.

Next, you will need to spawn the floating text entity. This is done by spawning a rabbit.

Use the Name Tag on the invisible rabbit to create the floating text. The rabbit is invisible and doesn’t have a hitbox. Aim at the center of the block to name the entity. I suggest using the Split Controls option in the touch settings.

You can make the text float by placing a block in the air then spawning the rabbit on it. Then break the block and it’s floating text!


  • You can no longer bump the Floating Text
  • To name the Rabbit aim at the center of the block
  • There is now only a Behavior Pack
  • Fixed the glitch where there were walking particles under the text

    But still a great addon!

  21. Cooper Robinson says:

    I love this add on. Maybe the invisible entity could be a shulker. Other than that I love this addon

  22. Xsniper says:

    I can easily do this with command blocks and you would be able to have other rabbits and the floating text. good for people who dont know commands.
