Future plan
  • Cave map(is this cheat?
  • Entities radar (is this cheat?

Basic tip:
Disable these both features for SMP play (by using the casual
if (!world.multiplayerWorld)
), then noone could possibly complain about.
I'm not entirely sure, but according to the updated policy you would be allowed to make such cheats...
Though one could argue that a secret-base detector (cavemap, entity radar) could be used for excessive griefing.

As i've said, just disable these both features for SMP and noone can complain ^^

Neat map features, btw :D

The Official FAQ for Rei's Minimap - Please read this before posting questions!

The Big Boss said:

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

Q - How do I enable the entity radar and cavemap in multiplayer?
A - First things first, read this piece of important information:
Now, read the OP on what to do.

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 - How to install this?
A - Watch this nice video made by Narzuhl:

Or for mac:

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 - I get his error:
A - Never forget it again: delete the META-INF folder in minecraft.jar.

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, <your question>?
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)

[Old; for v2.1 or lower] Q - Can I use custom colours for this minimap?
A - Yes, in \.minecraft\mods\rei_minimap\blockolor.txt, it's not a very easy job though.

Simple WOW!

Cant wait for the new features; Only one Issue so far;

My font is messed up; I am sure its not a compatibility issue as i checked to see if they use same .class Which they dont with my mods.

Examples Click ; If you find the image of the Main Menu (Single player, Multiplayer etc..) That is my default font; However on the other images the font is rather weird :( Not a major issue just thought i would point it out.

EDIT: It seems HD Textures are an issue; I use a 32x texture and the torches have weird dots and other items are effects too :S (was not like that before this EPIC minimap).

EDIT 2: Is it possible to get a 1.5x Zoom? :)

Your friendly neighborhood Kingpin here....
I have been looking for a replacement minimap for quite some time now. From reading the OP and looking at the pics, i am looking forward to giving this a try. Nicely done. Downloading and bookmarked.

This minimap looks awsome, and if it really is fast processing as it says in the description then im going to replace my minimap for this one right away.

Edit: Tested it and it is awsome. From now on I will be using your minimap :D

This mod is awesome, I would like to see the minimap graphic replace actual maps that Notch put in since this one is way more detailed and badass.

Advantage of Other minimap.
  • fast processing (particularly in a wide area map)
Could you explain how this works? Zan's Minimap uses Multithreading (which might screw with chunks, but seeing as I play online that's not important for me personally). How do you make sure performance doesn't suffer, does it have any drawbacks (downsides)?

I do not intend to speak badly about it, I'm just interested in these small details (I think it's an interesting read to know how people optimize stuff, might just be me thought).

It sounds pretty interesting to use though, I'll try once I decide/ have time to play minecraft again.

Great work i might add, I really like the presentation of the heightmap you've done :)

Future plan
  • Cave map(is this cheat?
Maybe check if there is a certain amount of light from torches and if yes, draw that portion of the map (other parts could be left dark). That way you could navigate through already explored areas easily without giving away hidden stuff.

View PostReiFNSK, on 17 July 2011 - 12:12 PM, said:

  • Entities radar (is this cheat?
Only show them if they are in direct line of sight? (and maybe only in a certain radius - you could set the radius when entities are shown on the map to the view range on tiny)

Also this feature could include options to leave certain entities out, for example if you don't want to see sheep on the map, or zombies, etc.

Both these "limitations" would (in my opinion) reduce the "cheat" feel (especially for the cave map). The only problem I could see arising would be performance when checking for light from torches or having to calculate what is in your line of sight.

Did you guys just throw it right into your jar or did you have to get rid of zan's first if you had it? :P

Amazing map by the way. Will be using it.

Works great, though it does add weird little texture changes to my roses and what looks like periods between the HD fonts :P

Though it's only when I have the map set to be round.
