So I'm working on a plugin which involves attacking an EnderCrystal multiple times to destroy it. I need to have the count shown for how many times it's been damaged. I already have a method that creates some health bar text to show over a LivingEntity's head, but the problem is that EnderCrystal does not implement LivingEntity, and thus cannot receive a custom nameplate. My initial thoughts were to put a bat on top and make the bat invisible, but that wouldn't work because invisible mobs don't show their nameplates, and a bat in the way would be unsightly. I then stumbled upon this thread and subsequently this concept. This seems to be similar to what I want, however it requires the player to actively "look at" a block to show the message and I think setting it up with code (messing with Block, Map, etc) would be a pain when all I want is a simple nametag. Finally, I found the holograms library, however I don't know if it will be reliable and unchanged in future versions of Minecraft, since it's technically a bug. So now I'm sitting here stuck, just trying to decide whether or not I should use the bug or not. What are your thoughts, and can you think of any viable alternatives? Thanks!
