Unfortunately, as of this afternoon I'm going to stop work on the mod after talking to Notch about it. I can't distribute it in its current form and I've already pulled the downloads from the site. I'm not too sad about this - its his game and he makes the rules. He's been super nice about the whole thing, and I want to respect his wishes. Right now I'm just hoping everyone forgets about the mod and it goes away quietly... I hope you understand.
If I could ask everyone to play along here and not reupload it, and remove it from download where its been rehosted I would be very grateful, and who knows, when official mod support goes into Minecraft (which would enable me to make mods like SimpleMap and a lot more without having to do the things that Notch disagrees with) it might return.
First the grass mod which is awesome, now this.. Jesus christ this is awesome..
One thing I did notice was wierd was that I KNOW Notch never specified on the cardinal directions in game, but if you do ever add updates I think you should add a tiny tiny compass, or fix how the map moves, cause it kinda contradicts with what I normally had set as the cardinal direction in-game.. (i.e Sun sets in the west, rises in the east)
You are my god and I shall build a temple for you.
E: You should add some sort of border around it and maybe move the screen down a few pixels and have some text in the middle top saying something like Navigation Screen or Mini-Map, and add a little dot or cross to show where we are (middle of the screen). Also, rotate the screen 90degrees clockwise, so that up is north and left right is west east (based on the sun)
I love you btw
