This is a so-called Fair-Play version of the better PVP mod. You can check out the full mod here.
All the arguably overpowered features are disabled in this mod version!

This mod adds a whole bunch of useful features to Minecraft that can be used either for PVP or for survival/hardcore. The mod adds a fully customizable GUI interface system which consists of various, also customizable, interfaces such as a minimap, armour status, potion status etc. It also adds a lot of useful keybinds that can make your game even more convenient. This mod is mostly client-sided. Installing it on the server side is optional for some additional features like world identification.


  • Mini-map interface - works above and under ground. Has togglable chunk grid and slime chunks modes. You can set your own waypoints. Each server, world and dimension will have separate sets of waypoints. Press "B" to create a waypoint. A special waypoint is created on each death. In full mod version can also display all types of entities.

* Compatible with Xaero's World Map 1.11.0 or newer. Version 1.30.0 is HIGHLY recommended.
+ Added support for displaying the world map cave mode on the minimap.
* The lighting should now respect the ambient light of dimensions.

* Fixed visual consistency with the world map mod for glowing blocks under hightlights (claims).

* Optimized world map region (re)load sorting and timing for a more seamless experience when moving between cave layers or changing mapping parameters.

I don't have a mod called "Xaero's Map". This mod contain the minimap by default and you can't install both this and the minimap mod at the same time. However, it is compatible with Xaero's World Map.
