Hello to all of the awesome Minecraft player! We are excited to bring you the newest additions and improvements to the Badlion Client. Some long time requests have finally found their way onto the fastest growing Minecraft Launcher in existence (Badlion Client, duh). We recently passed over half a million unique monthly users on the Badlion Client! Absolutely staggering how fast we are growing at the moment. We will continue to do our best to make a better Minecraft experience, and all of you return the favor and share this awesome client with a friend!
Let's talk right over the new features in this update!
Improving the Badlion Client Launcher
In this update we have gone ahead and made some changes to the Badlion Client launcher based on some recent outages we had due to all of the growth. We want to ensure that everyone is able to play Minecraft on Badlion Client regardless if our servers are online or offline. That's why we have begun the process of adding an offline support system (this is not complete yet). The first stage of this is supporting the ability to load, and launch Badlion Client if our servers are offline for whatever reason (which doesn't happen often). The launcher will now cache the last information transmitted from the patching servers, and use this information in case our servers are offline to launch Minecraft. This should result a better user experience for everyone here. Full offline support will be coming in Badlion Client 3.0, which is scheduled for release later this year still.
The new launcher update (not yet released, coming out on May 27th) also includes a new setting to change how long the logs are retained for…less disk space being wasted on old files. We will change the default nice from "forever" to "1 month" later in the year.
1.16 Snapshot Support
In preparation for the next big Minecraft update (which I imagine will be coming out in the next month or so), we have begun adding support for some of the snapshots on Badlion Client! We are committed to always supporting the latest version of Minecraft on day 1 of release, and Minecraft 1.16 will be no different for us. If you are interested in helping to support our work here and want to try out Minecraft 1.16 on Badlion Client before it's public release, consider buying Insider on our shop here: https://store.badlion.net/category/insider/
We are excited to share that we have recently added Optifine support for Minecraft 1.15.2 with Badlion Client. We have been patiently waiting (like most of the community) for a final release of Optifine, but we felt it was stable enough to add support for the Optifine pre-releases before a final version was made available. Now you can enjoy Minecraft 1.15.2 with your FPS improvements, shader support, and all of the awesome Badlion Client mods and cosmetics as well!
Optifine Upgrades for 1.8, 1.12, and 1.14!
EDIT: This will be made available next week when we have a bit more time to finish testing it and verify the stability.
In addition to adding Optifine for 1.15.2, we have gone back and given some love to the older versions of Minecraft! We have upgraded the Optifine version support for 1.8, 1.12, and 1.14. By doing so we have included a bunch of bug fixes and new features for the older versions of Minecraft. We hope that everyone is excited for a more stable and better FPS experience on Badlion Client with Optifine!
I am super excited to share a long time requested rework of one of our oldest mods on the client, the Animations Mod. This mod's primary purpose is to make Minecraft 1.8 feel like it did in Minecraft 1.7 and earlier. There were a lot of rendering engine changes to Minecraft on 1.8, and it broke the positioning and movement of certain items such as swords, fishing rods, and well…everything. We have gone ahead and rebuilt our Animations mod from the ground up taking into account all of the feedback we have received from the community over the last years. This update includes:
Check out some of the major differences we put together in a short video below:
We hope you are as excited about these changes as we are. We are committed to making the best Minecraft experience possible on Badlion Client, and we will continue to refresh some of our older mods in the coming updates to make sure you have everything you could possibly want in one location.
Chunk Border Mod
Do you like keeping track of your chunks in Minecraft? Well boy do we have good news for you! We have a brand new mod designed specifically for Factions players who need to pay attention to the chunks they are buying, building, or using in general. This mod allows you to see the chunk you are currently in, and as well as the surrounding chunks. There are some settings in game to allow you to adjust the colors, and which chunk options are enabled or not. We even added a keybind for you to use if you want to toggle this feature on and off a lot!
Clear Glass Mod
We have taken a long time feature in the Badlion Client and given it a major upgrade and as a result, it has now become it's own mod! You can set your glass and colored glass now to be completely, or partially invisible in game. We have also made this mod completely compatible with Optifine, so you can take advantage of the extra features such as connected textures directly in Badlion Client. We also have added the ability to customize the thickness of the border for glass, and also the transparency level for your texture as well!
Name History Mod
Another long time request joins the fastest growing Minecraft client (that's us silly)! We have finally gotten around to adding a Name History mod directly in Badlion Client! You can now check to see if someone has recently changed their name, or never changed their name. No more guessing if someone is switching usernames every month. You can open this new mod once activated using the ";" key (we are running out of keys to use).
Enchant Glint Color
Don't like the default purple in Minecraft for enchants? Well guess what, now you can use any color you want on your enchants (even Chroma). In the short example above, I have set my enchant glint to yellow.
We believe in empowering our users here. That's why we have gone ahead and added more options to the Armor Status mod, so that you can get that exact look and feel that you want. We have now made it possible for you to rearrange the positions of the durability to be under, above, left, or right of each armor piece.
Boss Bar Upgrades!
Do you not like the default Minecraft boss bar? Well you wouldn't be the first! We have gone ahead and added some new options to the Boss Bar mod to allow you to customize the size and color of the bar (including outline), as well as to control the text positioning of the mod. Not to worry though, if you are a standard Minecraft player, you can keep all of the default settings too!
Do you like having tons of friends? Well who doesn't (besides Ginie)? You can now automatically accept any friend invites that come your way when you are playing on Hypixel! This small utility mod was created by our good old friend 2pi, who was nice enough to allow us to add this feature into Badlion Client. Thanks man :)
Other New Features
We are still hard at work on Badlion Client 3.0! We have made some awesome progress in the last month with the UI. We are going to be showcasing off more previews of the client soon…and some of your favorite YouTubers and Twitch streamers might even get to showcase it in some videos soon! At it's core Badlion Client 3.0 is still focused on creating a better Minecraft experience. For us that begins with the way you use Badlion Client, which will have more options than ever before and in a much more organized fashion.
We will hopefully have some closed beta starting in the coming months for Badlion Client 3.0 as we get closer to completing the UI rework. After this is done we will be able to focus on all of the awesome improvements we want to bring to the client.
For Badlion Client 2.15 we will be focusing on some more improvements and new mods that will directly be ported into Badlion Client 3.0 including:
We have been hard at work trying to work through our long (and I mean long) backlog of tickets and crash reports. In Badlion Client 2.14 we have managed to close over 40 bug tickets, and are still working very aggressively to reduce the number of problems and crashes in Badlion Client. One of the big areas we are continuing to polish and improve is the UI Editing on the client. Random issues with mod resizing, configs not saving, etc. This has been a huge pain point for us and we are committed to fixing the problems, and then preventing future problems from arising.
Thanks for your ongoing patience with us as we continue to polish off the client.
Badlion Client 2.14 turned into a grand slam of an update if you ask me. The long awaited improvements to the Animations mod are here, along with many other features that I didn't think we would be able to squeeze into this update. Special shout out to the Badlion Client development team who has been doing an amazing job recently at adding new features and fixing bugs.
