The minimap mods are not familiar with the Minecraft players when some names like Zan’s Minimap, Rei’s Minimap, JourneyMap, etc. have been in most of the modpacks these days. These mods have a general and important feature that the original version of Minecraft does not own: Small map display. However, every different minimap mod will have different display and customization and supporting features.
Some key features of Xaero’s Minimap Mod:
- Display a small map on the left screen.
- Have a stable and smooth operation much more than almost all of other minimap mods.
- Display the whole system of caves.
- Turn on/off some features of chunk line (16×16 block).
- A system of waypoint: Remember to the waypoint and location and then display on a small map.
- Display the radar to find the players, mob, and item.
- Other features: two color modes: Origin and Exact (show the texture of landscape), Zoom in – out: Button I and O.
