Shy Nametags for Players Add-on

When this add-on is applied to a world, all nametags of players in the world will turn invisible. To see a player’s nametag (or gamer tag) you need to focus your line of sight on the player and the nametag will be visible again. This add-on is great for games where you don’t want your nametag to give away your position. This could be used ideally for PvP or hide and seek maps.

    This addon is great. Can u make it so you can have it on for certain players using tag. Thx

  4. Excellent addon! I use it for my hide & seek map and it works very well!

    everybody, this addon is amazing, to all of the unintelligent ppl out there, when you turn the nametags off in settings it only turns them off for YOU not other players

  6. Ryft Darkmile says:

    For all the people that claim an addon like this isn’t necessary (because the setting exists in the menus) you only need to run a pvp world or realm to see that it is. The built in Vanilla setting we have now is a player-specific setting, really like a preference and thus affects nothing globally. I can only explain it by giving you this example: suppose everyone on in your world agrees to turn gamertags off and you say you will do it but you leave it on in your settings. You open your map; you can still see where everyone is. So you can see by this example it is player-specific, not an admin setting as it was on legacy console edition, simply switching it on only affects the way you view things, no one else.

    is it possible for you to make a mod where you can see your own name above your head when in 3rd person, or maybe even make it togglable, and hopefully make it work in servers like the hive, i really wanna see what my hub titles look like under my name, i could imagine the mod itself is possible, but i dont think it would work in other servers that arent your own world right

  8. Falsehashtags says:

    Can u plz make a addon the removes them altogether?

  9. AkihikoEzawa says:

    I just cannot add this add-on to my Realms world, I activated it in my world, upload the world to my Realms, and found it doesn’t work, and I download the world back for check, then I found that the add-on wasn’t in the behavior packs list

  10. AkihikoEzawa says:

    Strange that I can’t add it into my Realms world, every time I activated it in my world and upload the world to my Realms, this add-on doesn’t work, and after I download the world back for check, I found that that the add-on was not in the list

  11. Dark says:

    Decent way to force people to not use gamer tags, everyone is complaining about the option to turn it off in vanilla, but that’s only on your side, this addon makes it that way for everyone

  12. Uwais_MC says:

    Lol, you can just hide gamertag in settings with no need addon

  13. Uwais_MC says:

    Lol, you can just disable gamertag in settings with no need an addon

  14. Milton says:

    Muy bueno

  15. BlackRed says:

    This so helpful, thanks 😉

      You’re pretty unintelligent aren’t you? On an online server telling every single person to change their setting to “off” is much more complicated then this simple method.

  17. Critic says:

    I’m my opinion, I say this addon is useless because you can let everyone on the game to turn off gametags in settings. But then again, it can be useful in case you don’t want people cheating if it is online and not local.

  18. Goldie says:

    Thanks, I’ve been planning a troll for a while, i carried it out 2 days ago and I had to go soft because the last no gamer tag addon wasn’t working, but now, I can use my herobrine skin without gamer tags. I also wanna do a creepy underwater town that all drowned that I made a map for, so yeah, this is VERY helpful, and I’m lucky this came out just recently. 5 starssss

  19. Prince says:

    So this isn’t that good because there’s literally an option now to see player names

  20. Alesscreeper says:


  21. AmandaDanielle5 says:

    But you can disable the visibility of player names in-game, in vanilla Minecraft. And no, it does not mean you need to disable the visibility of your GUI, or else it is difficult to play overall. There is a seperate option to make in-game nametags completely invisible.
