Fans of the popular MMO game Sword Art Online will probably really like this Sword Art Online UI Mod for Minecraft, which changes the user interface to resemble the one from SAO. It’s not just a couple little cosmetic changes either – button presses will perform the same actions and open the same windows, at least on the limited scale which is possible in Minecraft. Some menus have also been expanded, like the player’s inventory which is not split up into four different windows for weapons, armor, accessories and items. The mod does add a bit of custom content outside of the UI as well.




Besides inventory windows, many other interface features from Sword Art Online show up in this mod. When the player’s health is low it will change from green to read for instance. Enemies show their health as well using rounded bars which the player can use to effectively measure final strikes. One of the most notable features of the Sword Art Online UI Mod is that incoming private messages will actually open up their own individual windows, as is the norm in many multiplayer online RPGs. This makes keeping track of multiple conversations a breeze.

Because this mod makes the Minecraft interface more like Sword Art Online, it inadvertently (or maybe on purpose?) makes Minecraft a somewhat better multiplayer game. Fixes to chat and private messaging, transparent menus, inventory sorting and other features are all quite nice, and stuff you tend to find standard in MMORPGs. It’s understandable why features like this didn’t make it into Minecraft, but once you see them at play you’ll wonder how you ever got along without them. If you don’t already have it, get the Sword Art Online UI Mod and give it a try for yourself. You’ll like it.

  3. Like, are you serious?
    The vid on the post showcases ANOTHER mod. Not the SAO UI by TheJackiMonster (which also has plenty of showcases btw).

    On another note, I started updating this mod some time ago when TheJackiMonster stopped developing it, could you please link to the updated thread please? Or to the curseforge page, which also has downloads (instead of re-hosting…) and support so we can help people.


    • 1. Change the mod showcase.
      2. I’ve updated all download links + added 1.8.9.

      PS: Old links were the original from here:

        (sorry for being late, I didn’t receive a reply notification…)

        And sorry if my first comment was rude, I was dealing with the MASSIVE amount of reposts this mod got at that moment :c some were even renaming packages, completely trying to claim Jacki and ours work as theirs…

    • when you Run forge for the first time it should create a mods folder but if it didnt you can create one in the .minecraft folder….just create a new folder and name it “mods”

  4. Please help,when I put it in my mods folder and try to join a server or single player world my game crashes 🙁
