The 3D Minimap Mod is a really cool and useful minimap which makes it possible to more easily navigate and understand the world around you. This release is the first beta and as a result it’s quite limited in terms of functionalities. As it is now it can detect naturally generated blocks as well as water and lava.
In the top-right corner of the screen the minimap will appear as soon as you have entered a world. The brown marker in the center of the minimap is your character and everything around you are the blocks surrounding you in that second.
Currently it can only detect natural blocks (such as sand, grass blocks, trees, stone, water and lava). It would be nice if it included functionalities to change the size of the map and the possibility to detect mobs and more blocks.
This screenshot has been edited a little for the purpose of this review. The minimap will be a little bit smaller and have no white border.
