Squeedometer is a fairly simple client sided mod that isn’t really for every single player out there but, for a select audience of players, it can definitely be quite useful. The mod came out back in August 2014 and, as of right now, it’s sitting at around 12,500 downloads, so it really isn’t the most popular mod currently available. The purpose of the mod is to implement a speedometer into the game’s HUD so players can see just how fast they’re traveling. The mod isn’t that intrusive so, after a while, it’ll start to feel like a natural part of the game’s HUD.
After applying the Squeedometer mod, you’ll start to see a simple reading on your HUD that’ll give you a number represented in blocks per second and this number is basically the speed your character is traveling at. The mod’s actually quite accurate at determining speed, and this is why you’ll constantly see this value shifting when you change your mode of transportation. For example, when riding a horse, your speed will be at a considerably high value. The Squeedometer mod can also be used as a great companion for mods like Squake, so it’s highly recommended that you use the two in conjunction with one another to utilize their functionality as much as possible.
The great thing about the Squeedometer mod is the fact that, since it’s so simple and client sided, it hardly impacts the game’s performance in any way. Due to this, you’ll probably be able to use this mod without any trouble, even if you play Minecraft on a computer with outdated hardware. All said and done, Squeedometer is a simple and straightforward mod that can definitely be of use to a select audience of players who want to measure their character’s speed as they travel through the Minecraft world.
