Building, fighting, mining and more are all made easier in Minecraft by the hotbar at the bottom of the window. You can plug your tools, weapons and other items into those slots and then, with a roll of the mouse wheel or the press of a button, have those goods in your hands and ready to use. But are 9 slots really enough? The author behind the Quick Hotbar mod didn’t think so. After countless hours of time lost switching back and forth between blocks in his inventory and blocks on his hotbar, he finally came up with this mod to simply expand the hotbar. But it’s probably not what you think.
With the Quick Hotbar mod installed, if you hold down the left CTRL button, you will get to see a small sort of preview of all the items in your inventory, or empty slots if your inventory isn’t full, for all 27 inventory spaces. Then you can use your mouse wheel to scroll through the different rows of goods, followed up by pressing a number key to quickly use the corresponding block in that row. This speeds up construction quite a bit and allows you to quickly access all the blocks you need to make whatever you wish.
This mod works in both single and multiplayer, where it might admittedly give you an unfair advantage over the other players. Namely, you could fill your inventory with gapples or mushroom soup on a soup server or anything else that could help you win a fight, then easily beat down everyone you come across. The Quick Hotbar mod was not intended to be used in this way, but it also isn’t the only mod which get used in ways which weren’t intended by the author. For better or worse, this mod is a powerful and useful tool for Minecraft players of all kinds.
