Rei’s Minimap Mod Review(137/365)

Hello everyone. Believe it or not, today I will finally do a mod review. If I am correct, my last mod review was the Treecapitator mod. So…it’s been a while since I’ve done a mod review. Anyway, today I decided to do a mod review on the very nice mini-map mod from Rei. So, here we go.

As many of you probably know, there are a lot of mini-maps mods out there, and a lot of them have some features this mod doesn’t have. Primarily, this mod, without the permission of the server, will not show any entities nearby. Therefore you cannot use this mod to search for players nearby. As sad as that may be, it doesn’t matter much to me. I’ve never liked the entity maps, and any “cheating” mod as they take the fun away from the game. Where other mini-maps advance in entity detection, Rei’s makes up for it in quality and features.

Look at the top-right.

If you look at the top right you might just notice something different from the vanilla HUD. If you haven’t picked it up yet, the square closely resembles a detailed map with some beautiful detail. This mod allows you to see the world around you in a different way, with more detail. As a bonus, there is no lag with this mod. As an owner of a terrible computer, that comes as a bonus. Another nice feature is the quick coordinates on the map. No longer do we need to press “F3” in order to see out coords!

Now there is some serious customization with this mod, allowing you to customize your map in many different ways.

As I said earlier, there are a lot of menus for customization.

You can even zoom in and out of the map.

Default zoom level.

Zoomed out.

Now the best part about this map is probably the waypoint feature.

Through this mod, you can add waypoints to the world, which will allow you to easily find your way home, or anyway. It’s very nice if you want to create a waypoint for home, a mine, a cool location, spawn area, etc. All of that can be achieved by using waypoints. Not only that, but each of the waypoints can be customized by shape and color. Very nice.

And once you’ve created your waypoint, it’s very difficult to  ignore the icon. Very difficult to lose your home now!

Very nice!

And as a bonus pic, I’m going to show you a pic involving a clue towards my next mod review. This one guaranteed to come very soon! Can you guess it?

Hope you enjoyed the post and Happy Mining!
