If the server owners are that against having a mini-map on their server, they can set the MOTD to disallow it. As a server owner, I have absolutely no problem with the entity radar or cave map. I would make it so that if there is no MOTD, the entity radar is enabled by default, along with there being a MOTD that doesn't include the code to disable it.
-Added: Cavemap support in SMP. default is disabled.
-Added: Entities radar support in SMP. default is disabled.
-Added: Setting of position where map is displayed.
-Added: The transparency of entity is decided by the vertical interval.
-Changed: Integration of modloader version and non-modloader version.
How to Enable Cave mapping / Entities radar on SMP
Cave mapping and entities radar of the SMP is disabled by default.
When the server owner (using bukkitplugin/other) sets the key word to motd(login message), they become effective.
Please set the keyword to motd referring to the following.

This new update is freaking great. I am loving the new entities radar with distance transparency. Keep up the fantastic work.
LOL i was just about to post that nice lil tidbit of info but the above poster beat me to it. What is it they say about great minds? So, just to repeat, if you are using the ModLoader version, you can just drop the zip into your .minecraft/mods folder. Has been working for me and is much easier than messing with the JAR. This is just a heads-up for less experienced folks that might not know about it. Enjoy.
I was literally blown away by how good this mod is.
I was thinking, if Zans Minimap was so popular, then it would be better.
Definatly not the case. This is amazingly good. I really have no clue why it isn't as popular.
You have made my day, sir. No, actually you made my whole week.
I was a big fan of Zan's; this has more features, and it's graphics are astounding! I'm certainly replacing Zan's with this. This is most likely not as popular because it only came out recently, Zan's was the best alternative for a while before this.
