VoxelMap Mod – Minecraft 1.7.4, 1.6.4 and 1.6.2

Minecraft has an amazing landscape. In fact, it’s so amazing, that it’s actually pretty fun to even just explore. The problem with this, however, is that the maps of Minecraft are massive (about 7 times the size of Earth!), and getting lost is quite an easy task. Sure, you can make a map, but if you travel far enough, the map won’t work anymore. You could also use a compass, but the downside to using this, is that you aren’t really focused on what’s in front of you, meaning that you could end up falling off of a cliff if you aren’t careful. If only there was a way to fix this.

Thankfully, there is, and it’s called the VoxelMap Mod. The VoxelMap Mod is a mod that makes it so you have a minimap on the upper right corner of your screen, meaning that you always know what type of terrain is around you. This should make exploration go by a lot smoother. In addition to that, this mod also makes it so you can place waypoints on the map, meaning that you will never get lost either.

This mod is very useful for the survival game mode. For example, let’s say that you’re playing on a fairly big server that doesn’t have a teleport option because it’s pure survival. This means that you can’t teleport back to your home, and the only way to get back would be to find your way home, or get yourself killed in order to respawn at home. You know as well as I do that the second option is not an option. Thanks to this mod, you can set a waypoint at your house before you explore, and you can run back when you’re done exploring.

All in all, the VoxelMap Mod is a pretty nice mod, and is recommended for anyone who would like to have a minimap in there game, or would like to set waypoints on servers, such as the MineZ servers.

So you want to install a mod for Minecraft? Well, thanks to this guide, it’s easy as 1-2-3! Before we start however, here are some precautions you might want to read:

  1. Be sure to get WinRAR or 7-zip. It’s a necessity for installing mods.
  2. Be sure to backup your “minecraft.jar” before doing anything! We don’t want you to have to force update now, do we?
  3. Be sure to delete META-INF inside “minecraft.jar”.
  4. Be sure to install the mods listed in the yellow box below first. They are usually mods required for the mod you want to install to work.
  5. The Forge and Modloader installation instructions only apply if the yellow box below states that the mod requires either Modloader of Forge. If the yellow box does not, use the “Old-Fashioned” instructions.
  6. The Forge and Modloader instructions only apply to the mod itself. Any mod in the yellow box below must be installed using the “old-fashioned” instructions.

Minecraft 1.6.4 and 1.6.2 changed the way mods are to be installed now. So much, that it’s best to have a full blown guide page for this, rather than quick instructions. Click the link below for the guide:

Here’s the steps to installing that mod you want, or how to install Forge, Modloader, :

  1. Close Minecraft. This is to ensure that the files will overwrite properly.
  2. Open up Windows Explorer.
  3. In the navigation bar, type “%AppData%”.
  4. Navigate to “Roaming”. (Skip this step if you can’t see a roaming folder.)
  5. Open up a folder called “.minecraft”.
  6. Open up a folder called “bin”.
  7. Right click the file called “minecraft” or “minecraft.jar”.
  8. Select open with.
  9. Open with WinRAR.
  10. Open up the mod. (be sure to extract the mod first.)
  11. If there are no specific instructions included with the mod, it is safe to assume that you drag all the files in.
  12. Be sure to delete META-INF. I can’t stress this enough.

That’s it! Have fun!

So you have a Mac computer? The Mac Operating System has a very different framework compared to its Windows counterpart, so the installation instructions will be different. Here’s a video to help you out:

Hopefully that helped you out! If not, you could post it in the comments, and we will help you!

So you noticed this mod requires Minecraft Forge or Modloader, correct? Installing Forge and Modloader mods are just as easy as installing mods the old-fashioned way! In fact, it’s even easier once you get passed the main part Here’s the steps:

  1. Install Minecraft Forge, Modloader, or any mod dependency listed in the yellow box below using the “Old-Fashioned” installation instructions to the left.
  2. Start Minecraft up. Close Minecraft afterwards.
  3. Navigate to the “.minecraft” folder. Once you open it, you will notice that there is a “mods” folder. If there isn’t a mods folder to be seen, create one.
  4. Place the mod inside the “mods” folder.
  5. Open Minecraft up and have fun!

For the most part, that’s it when it comes to Modloader and Forge mods. Also, please note that you no longer have to do steps 1 and 2 once you already installed it the first time (you may need to reinstall them however, if you updated your client). Also, just a heads up, if you don’t see the mod loaded into the game, you might have to extract the mod into a folder.  Most mods work in their zipped form, but some require you to extract them first. Have fun!
