Renaming Items[]

After creating the Compound Tagger place it down and right-click it to open it and you will see a custom GUI:

  • Place the item you want to rename in the slot to the left.
  • Type what you want to rename the item to in the text box.
  • And click the hammer icon in the top-left to rename any item

It will still function as normal just with a new name.

Renaming Creatures[]

Renaming creatures is just as simple as items, first you need to create a name tag.

Then you rename to same way you would any other item and apply it to the creature of choice by right-click the creature with the name tags in hand, that creature will never despawn whether the player gets it off-screen or leaves the world, it can still be killed however.

Removing Name Tags[]

If you ever need to remove a nametag from a creature all you need to do is right click them with Scissors in hand.
