Mapwriter 2 Mod for Minecraft 1.12.2/1.11.2/1.10.2

Mapwriter 2 Mod for Minecraft 1.12.2/1.11.2/1.10.2

Maps in Minecraft are pretty much useless as they have been implemented so far. They’re either so small that they don’t give any useful information about the surrounding area, or they’re so large that you can’t find yourself, your house or any other identifying markers just by looking at the map. Maps are a mess in Minecraft, but the Mapwriter 2 mod does a few things to improve maps and make them easier for players to use and view. Basically, this mod adds a miniature map in-game so players can get their bearings right from the start, rather than waiting until they have everything needed to craft a map.




Of course, the best way to find your way around is still to write down specific points in a text document, or maybe in a book and quill if you happen to have that item. Just noting locations for your home, NPCs villages, temples and dungeons is a great way to find your way back to any of those points later, with or without a map. Just follow the numbers and all that. But for players who want a more realistic Minecraft experience, a mod like Mapwriter 2 could be an indispensable tool.

This special mini map works in both single and multiplayer environments, and you don’t need to worry about getting kicked or banned from a server for cheating if you happen to use this mod when playing online. The Mapwriter 2 mod has some support built-in for other resource packs since it uses the color occurring on blocks to draw them up in the mini map. The whole map can also be exported from Minecraft into a PNG image, so you can pass it around to your friends or post it in a convenient location, so people know how to navigate in your world.

Mapwriter 2 Mod Features:

  • In game mini-map for multiplayer and singleplayer.
  • Client side (server does not need to have the mod installed).
  • The areas you explore are saved and can be viewed by scrolling or zooming the map, even when you are in a completely different part of the world.
  • Full-screen map GUI. Set waypoints by right clicking, pan map by click dragging, zoom with the mouse wheel.
  • Rotating circular mini map mode. Can be enabled in the options GUI.
  • Colours for blocks automatically generated from the block’s texture.
  • Support for custom texture packs.
  • Support for blocks added by mods.
  • Biomes are now coloured appropriately.
  • Entire map can be written to a PNG image.
  • Explored chunks are also saved in Anvil format from multiplayer servers, so you can view the world using tools such as Eihort.
  • When in the Nether the mini-map shows your effective location in the Overworld. This makes placing portals easier.
  • Underground map mode (vastly improved in 2.0.14).
  • All block colours configurable

In Game Key Bindings:

  • ‘N’ toggles mini-map between normal mode, large mode, and hidden.
  • ‘M’ opens/closes the interactive map GUI.
  • ‘,’ toggles which marker group is shown.
  • ‘.’ teleports to a nearest visible marker in the direction you are facing.
  • ‘PAGE UP’ zooms out.
  • ‘PAGE DOWN’ zooms in.
  • ‘U’ toggles underground mode.

Note: In game key bindings can be changed via the normal Minecraft controls menu:

Press Escape -> Options... -> Controls...
