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 theVoxelMap Mod. TheVoxelMap 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, theVoxelMap 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.
