You can now make use of the mythical minimap in the current version of Minecraft.
Xaero’s Minimap 1.18.1, 1.17.1, 1.16.5 and 1.12.2 is a mod that provides us with a map of the world. The mod offers a minimap that appears in the upper right corner of our screen. In this map we will be able to see the orography of the terrain, as well as the entities near the character, which will be the center of the map.
Beyond seeing the terrain around us, as well as animals and hostile entities, among other things, the mod will allow us to mark points of interest on the map. For example, we will be able to mark the position of our house or anything interesting. These points will be shown on the map, but also in the world.
This minimap incorporates a system of enlargement of the terrain area that appears inside the minimap box. To zoom in or out, we will have to use the “I” and “O” keys. While if we press the “Y” key we will access the configuration menu where we will find the mod options.
It is worth noting that this mod adds many features, but does not allow you to view the map in full screen as before. To enjoy the full screen map we will have to install Xaero’s World Map Mod, as this functionality has been separated into a separate mod.
