The mod adds a self-writing fullscreen map to your Minecraft client. Works as a separate mod but is a lot better with Xaero's Minimap. The reason why it's available separately is to keep Xaero's Minimap as light-weight as possible.

The mod is still in development! Please report any bugs that you encounter or otherwise they won't get fixed. You can private message me to report bugs.

Make sure your world is optimized (Singleplayer - Edit - Optimize World) for the Minecraft version you're playing (repeat after every Minecraft update). It takes A LOT longer to generate singleplayer maps from unoptimized world saves.

Install by dropping the jar into the Minecraft Forge's mods folder, as usual. A step-by-step guide is available on the download page.


Current Mod Features:


  • Self-writing world map. Different for every world/dimension/server.
  • Works in Singleplayer, Multiplayer and on Realms.
  • Interactive interface. Open by pressing M. Move the map around with your mouse and zoom in/out using the mouse wheel, similar to Google Maps.
  • Automatic MultiWorld / Lilypadded servers support.
  • Minecraft Realms support (also with MultiWorld support).
  • Texture Pack support. Changing the texture packs updates the whole world map and not just the new chunks.
  • Cave dimensions support (similar to Nether).
  • Vanilla maps mode. Makes the world map look like vanilla paper maps.
  • Terrain texture customization.
  • "Footsteps" showing your most recent path.
  • Optional performance boosters.
  • Xaero's Minimap integration. The minimap mod will display chunks loaded by the world map. The world map mod will display waypoints from the Xaero's Minimap. Also works with Better PVP mod.
  • Off-screen waypoint menu that can be opened on the map GUI by placing the mouse cursor in the bottom-right corner of the screen. Selecting a waypoint from the menu with the mouse scroll wheel and clicking the right mouse button will quickly move the map view to the selected waypoint to speed-up map scrolling.You can also start typing a part of a waypoint's name to filter out unwanted waypoints. Pressing ENTER will restart the search.





    How to install the Fabric version:

    • Download and install the Fabric Loader.
    • Download Fabric API and put it in the "mods" folder in the Minecraft game directory.
    • Download the Fabric version of the map mod for your Minecraft version and put it in the mods folder.
    • Start the Fabric game "installation" using the Minecraft launcher.

    Why does the world map ask for confirmation?

    A single server address can have multiple overworlds, nethers etc. It can be due to multiple sub-servers or just multiple world saves, for example a "Lobby" world and a "Game" world. Different worlds don't have any unique identifiers on the client side, which makes it impossible to reliably differentiate between them. Because of this, the world map mod lets you have multiple world maps for each dimension on the same server address. By default, map selection is Manual, which means that you are asked to confirm which map to use every time you switch dimensions/worlds/sub-servers. You can also choose one of the 2 automatic modes. Map selection is done in a special menu by clicking the bottom left icon on the world map screen (if the menu isn't open my default). In the menu you can switch between Manual, World Spawn and Single modes and select/create maps by using the top dropdown menu. If you hover over the Map Selection option, you can read everything you need to know about each map selection mode. World Spawn mode is the equivalent of what was used by the world map pre 1.6, but it's now improved with the possibility of changing which map is used on what world. So you don't have to downgrade the mod to still use it.

    Your world map has "reset" for a specific server?

    Do not panic. It's almost certainly not actually deleted (this has never happened as far as I know). Old world map versions use a world spawn-based system to separate a server into multiple maps. This system often breaks because of servers adding custom functionality to the vanilla compass item by sending fake world spawn coordinates to your game client. Make sure you update the mod to the latest version. There are now multiple map selection modes you can choose between, Manual being the default one. You can now view any world map you have on the current server address. Click the bottom left icon on the world map to open the map selection menu, if it's not open by default. The top center dropdown menu allows you to select existing or create new world maps. You can hover over the map selection mode option (bottom left) to read about how each mode works. Manual mode is the safest and should work on every server. You can even keep using the world spawn-based system by picking World Spawn mode. Choose what map is bound to your current spawn by "confirming" the selected map. It's something you couldn't do in older versions. Or, if it's a simple server with a single world, then choose Single mode. Message me or leave a comment if you have questions!

    Here's the old explanation if you can't update the mod to 1.6.1 or newer:

    70 Update Logs

    Update #70 : 09/18/2020 4:01:40 amSep 18th

    Update 1.11.0 (MC 1.16.3, 1.16.2, 1.15.2, 1.14.4, 1.12.2, 1.8.9, 1.7.10):

    * Compatible with Xaero's Minimap / Better PVP 20.23.0 or newer. No longer compatible with older!
    * Reworked map shading/slopes. Should give the map a better feeling of depth and improve the appearance in general. You can still use the old shading by choosing "Legacy" in the "Terrain Slopes" option. Toggle the option to OFF and back to "Default" to force a full map refresh.
    * Increased multiplayer map data save version. Older mod versions will not be able to load files saved by this one. This version should still be able to load older map data.
    * Fixed block light brightness inconsistency with the minimap.
    * Fixed rare errors (in form of lines) in slope shading.
    * (1.7.10 - 1.15.2) Fixed modded biome ids not being saved as 32 bit integers (instead of 8) when necessary.
    - Removed some old unnecessary code.

    This mod doesn't have its own waypoints. Your Better PVP waypoints will obviously stay if you keep using it, and the world map will display them.
    If you're actually asking about the minimap mod, then yes, waypoints would also transfer to that. I don't really see why you would want to switch from Better PVP to the minimap mod though.

    Waypoints were obviously not deleted if they returned afterwards.
    I assume you're playing in multiplayer. The waypoints are separated per-world-map when this mod is used in multiplayer.
    After you confirm a map to use (and the waypoints "disappear"), go to the waypoints menu and select the correct waypoints sub-world from the top-right dropdown menu, then do Options -> Make Sub-World Auto.

    I was very reluctant to try this, because I've used Journey Map so long, but my I couldn't use it on my newest installation so I used it. I think it's amazing! I love how it scans the area not just where I walk but as far as i can render and lets me find villages and structures I would miss on my daily walks! You are made of win!

    If you are in multiplayer, you probably haven't confirmed the map after switching worlds/dimensions. Read the "Why does the world map ask for confirmation?" section in the description (this page).

    Thank you! People have suggested it a lot for Better PVP. It's not what the mod is really about, tbh, because I never intended for it to be a "4th wall breaking" mod (at least not too much), but I can see why people would think it fits the mod. I have it on my ideas list, so we'll see.

Like it's there, but.. it's like i'm running minecraft on a god damn potato. I've tried getting rid of it and testing to see what was doing it, but it's just extremely slow with the updated 1.15.2 version. Is there something I can do for this?

I was going to figure out which mod is doing it, and i found out it was Xaeros World map. I dont know why it happens, maybe because minecraft needs to display so much things PS: (i dont have original mc)

    Hello Mr. Xaero96! Quick question: is there any way to export maps outside of the game? On very large maps, the game tends to crash when exporting.

    Allocate more RAM and it shouldn't crash. The required RAM for the export doesn't infinitely increase with map size but you don't have enough for the maximum export image size.

    Good night. I found a bug and it is that when i press m the
    world map appears for 3 seconds and then disapear and i have to press m
    again and it disapears again, i´m using forge 30.0.14 and minecraft java
    1.15.2 (premium-paid version). The Xaero´s minimap works perfect and
    it´s 20.8.0 while the world map mod that has the bug is 1.5.7. I don´t
    know if this is the best way to communicate bugs but i appreciate your
    work and i´m thankful with it.
