This mod is not yet finished and also isn't a very complex mod, however it is a quite useful mod, which I firstly programmed for a friend of mine and myself. It allows you to synchronize your waypoints created with either Rei's Minimap or Zan's Minimap (now also known as Voxelmap) with other players on the server you are playing on (only works if the mod is installed on the server). It also allows you to teleport to your waypoints, which is nothing new for Zan's Minimap (Voxelmap), but for Rei's it is. This mod post contains no screenshots or videos, because there is not much to see, the mod just works in the background with only a few messages displayed to the user.
You are allowed to make a review of this mod, you can advertise this mod, but you mustn't make money with my work by uploading it to other platforms or linking to my file via advertising sites. Please don't do that, I did a lot of work and don't want you to make money with it. If you do redistribute my work I'll find you and then ...

version b0.4 (MC 1.7.2):
The README file will be available soon.
version b0.3.2 (MC 1.6.4):
Playing in SMP or a local multiplayer game you just have to press the configured key to start a synchronization. The default synchronization key is "F12", however you can change this via the vanilla minecraft keybinding configuration menu. After pressing this key the mod will send all waypoints that are set to be visible to the server, which adds unknown waypoints to it's internal list of waypoints and then sends back all waypoints that are not yet on the client, which will then appear on your minimap.
To teleport to a waypoint (in SSP & SMP) just use the build in feature of Zan's Minimap or if you are using Rei's Minimap use the command /warptowaypoint, in short /wtw followed by the name of the waypoint you want to teleport to. This command can automatically complete your typed name by pressing the tab-key. WARNING: This mod will not check if it is safe to teleport you, so you may suffocate in a wall or die from fall damage, if the waypoints are not set safe or if something was built on them or removed around them, so be carefull with using this command.
- Server Configuration:
As of version b0.4 minimapsync now has a very simple configuration file, which will only be generated on the server. The file can be found in the /config folder. If you change the boolean (true or false) value in there to true the server will be set to command synchronization. This will prevent normaö users from sending waypoints to the server, they can only receive the waypoints that are allready present on the server. However this would be useless if there was no way to send new waypoints to the server, so there is a way, but to read more about that way of adding waypoints to the server head on to "Command Synchronization" further down the page.
- Command Synchronization:
Now that there is a way of protecting the server from other adding waypoints you'll need a way to add waypoints to the server, besides editing *.minimapsync files. There comes this little command /snyc. This is only available for ops (operators). The command will sync your visible waypoints like a normal sync to the server.
- Delete waypoint from server:
To delete a waypoint from the server's list use the command /delpoint or in short /dp followed by the name of the waypoint to delete the specified waypoint, if there are multiple waypoints with the same name the server will ask you which one to delete.
You do not have to make sure that the waypoint is removed from any client, because deleted waypoints now are put on a blacklist and won't be added to the server anymore.
This command can automatically complete your typed name by pressing the tab-key.
As of version b0.4 you now have to use the command /wpm (waypointmanager) followed by the parameter "dp" and the name of the waypoint(this command still supports tab-completion).
- Recover a deleted Waypoint:
Well there was a way to delete a waypoint from the server, but what about recovering it? As of version b0.4 you now can get a waypoint back onto the servers list by using the new waypointmanager command /wpm with the parameter "rp" followed by the name of the deleted waypoint, this command also supports tab-completions.
