Rei’s Minimap Mod is a very handy tool for Minecraft. The best feature is in my opinion the Minimap itself. Among this feature, it also comes with other cool features, like setting spawn/waypoints and cave mapping. The menu lets you do a ton of customisations. You can set render types, set death point so you can see where you died, surface options and a lot more.

Features of Rei´s Minimap Mod:

  • Minimap
  • ZanMinimap frame appearance
  • Waypoints
  • Ingame keyconfig
  • Fast processing
  • Entities radar
  • Cave mapping
  • Fast processing
  • Beautiful map rendering:
    • Expression of dynamically changing lighting
    • Expression of semitransparent blocks
    • Automatically generate the block colors from your texturepack
    • Bump-map expression of height
    • Biome color

Setting waypoints is a very handy features which comes with this mod. It does what it says – lets you set a waypoint. This way you can put a waypoint at your home, go out and explore the big world of Minecraft, and then go back when you are done without getting lost.

    Q – Why is entity/cave mapping disabled? Could you re-enable it?
    A – It’s re-enabled since 2.7! BOOM!

    Q – so how it woerkz cna u make liek a video tutoreal phoar htis??!!1!one11
    A – Talk English please. Then everyone can understand you and help you with your problem.

    Q – The download doesn’t work for me.
    A – Try switching your ad blocker off if you use one. If that doesn’t work, download the mod from the download mirrors in the “Mirrors” spoiler tag.

    Q – Blackscreen HELP!
    A – Post your error log in a code tag, tell which Minecraft version and which other mods you use. For a more detailed list on how to report errors, go here.

    Q – So normally this mod works fine, but one day my map disappeared from my screen. I’m 100% sure I installed this mod right. What now?
    A – Go to the in-game menu (default M key) and re-enable the “Rei’s Minimap” option.

    Q – Can I convert my Zan’s/CJB’s waypoints to Rei’s minimap?
    A – Yes, but you have to do it manually, by writing down the coords of the waypoints and adding them in the rei_minimap waypoints config.

    Q – Err.. What is a “Guinea Pig version”?
    A – It’s a minimap test version for the next Minecraft version, meaning the mod can be instable and/or misses several features which are normally there. Doesn’t mean it’s always the case.

    Q – The map seems to be blurry when I zoom in. How so?
    A – This can be disabled in the menu, the “Filtering” option. Disabling it will take slighty more memory and will make the map look a bit low-pixeled when you zoom out again.

    Q – Actually, what makes this minimap so different from all others?
    A – Terrain undulation, Biome colour display, water transparancy, 1.8 lighting engine implemention, slime spawn chunk higlighting, lots of customization, fast updating to newer version, incredibly advanced viewing options, no FPS or performance drop. NEW: Chunk grid, entity radar & cavemapping.

    Q – Can I edit the colours on the minimap so it looks better with my texture pack?
    A – This is done automatically. No need for any modding/editing, just switch in-game to the texture pack and you’re good to go.

    Q – Can I edit the colours on the minimap so it works with another mod which adds items?
    A – Nope, the colour editing function got removed. Possibly there will be a way to display custom blocks on the map in the future.

    Q – Can I disable certain blocks on the map, for example trees?
    A – No, Rei is not planning to implement it yet. He’ll see what the future brings.

    Q – Help, ?
    A – Post your question in this thread please.

    Q – I posted a question, but got no reply?
    A – This means one of these three things happened:
    – Your question is too obvious and unnecessary to answer;
    – The question is not understood;
    – We missed your question. Sorry if it happened to you.

    Q – Could I have the source code?
    A – Nope.

    Q – Uhm, why aren’t you ReiFNSK? He made the mod right?
    A – He does not fully master the fluently typing and reading of the English language yet, so I try to be as helpful as possible to all people in need of help with this amazing mod. I wrote this with permission of the mod owner, of course. (It’s linked from the OP, duh :3)
