Hats - Made during ModJam

Runner up of the 96 hour modding marathon hosted by Searge of MCP, known as ModJam.


This mod adds an Aesthetic feature onto players, namely Hats!
(No, this is not a TF2 Mod)

This video explains how to use the mod to it’s full potential:

This is an early video of the mod when it was first released.

  • This mod comes pre-packaged with close to a hundred hats which will automatically get installed when the mod is run for the first time. You can also install more hats from Techne Online later on. (In Minecraft 1.8 and later, Hats will be using the Tabula format primarily, but will still accept Techne’s format)
  • It is made to be run on both servers with and without the mod. On servers without the mod, each player will have a random installed hat on (configurable). On servers with the mod, each player gets to show off their own choice of hat.



How do you choose a hat? Simple! Hit H on your keyboard whilst in-game and a Hat Selector GUI will pop up. This GUI shows you all your currently installed hats and lets you choose one to wear.










There’s also a colourizer option, allowing you to apply Minecraft’s colourizer on hats you wear. When you’ve decided on a hat, hit done and your hat will be displayed for everyone (on the modded server) to see.










If you installed a new hat and join a server with the mod, the mod will send the hat to the server, and the server will send it to all the players in your vicinity, so that they can view your hat, as well as use it.
(as this may pose a security risk, this can be disabled. However, by installing the mod, you accept whatever risks (although minimal) that you may encounter, without putting me or the mod liable. I have, however, tried to minimize the risk with my very best.)


Loads of thanks

  • Mr. Hazard as main modeller. (Your models are awesome as always)
  • ChipUK for hosting a test server.
  • Everyone who helped tested the mod before ModJam ended.
  • Everyone who was watching during the live stream.
  • All the model submissions in within the 4 days of ModJam
  • Everyone who participated in ModJam.


What else do I need for this mod? What version should I get? Help? Answered on the FAQ.



Minecraft 1.5.X


Minecraft 1.4.7

Also check out the Hat Stand addon!

Known Issues

Like the Back Tools mod, this mod is slightly incompatible with Smart Moving and Mine Little Pony and all mods of the like. Floating hats will occur, and there is nothing I can, or will, do about it.

More Hats?

Right now I’m planning on adding Hat Packs in the future, but for now there’s not enough hats to make a pack out of, so feel free to download any of the models from Techne Online. Drop the tcn file in the hats folder in the root of your minecraft jar (Where /mods/ is). Yeah… You can have a Xenomorph hat, if you know where to look.


Alternatively you can also make your own hats using Techne! You can check my post here for info.

This will be changed in MC 1.8 where Hats will be using a Tabula format instead.

    With the default config, when playing on a vanilla server the player’s hat will randomly change at random times (Once it changed in half a second, other times it can take 5 minutes) and other player’s hats will change upon leaving and re-entering the are where they are rendered and upon re-spawning.

      That behaviour is intended to prevent any “floating hat” bugs which can be annoying at times, since the entity is rendered 100% clientside.

            Little kid translation:

            “have you had sex yet cause if not dont be offensive”

          It’s not to be offensive.It involves upside down stuff or something.Trust me,no offence was meant.

          • Jagm July 3, 2014 12:54 am 

            It’s because Australia is on the bottom of the world. People make jokes about being upside-down when they’re there.

          Why? You guys have your own hat!! I mean, is that bad? They didn’t say American or British, they said Australian! That’s special, if you ask me.

          • Australian Guy January 13, 2014 9:59 am 

            What’s so bad about the minecart hat? I’m Australian and I don’t exactly find it offensive. To be honest, I never knew a minecart was offensive to us.

          • Jason June 1, 2014 4:25 am 

            Australia means down under so that’s why its upside down

        • zxin Mine March 2, 2014 9:59 am  Reply

          I don’t see why It’s offensive yet, even though I’m Australian

          • YayHarry101 June 12, 2014 2:55 pm 

            I’m Australian I’m From New South Wales to be honest it really isn’t offensive at all if anything its kinda funny not offensive, funny.

          You do not understand, mate. It’s a common joke for us down under for things to be ‘literally’ down under.

          On survival you need to kill hat-wearing mobs to get hats
