Unlike the other Minimap Mods, Xaero’s Minimap keeps Interface clean and it fuses well with the overall aesthetics of Minecraft. It even allows you to set the waypoints manually and the death points will be credited automatically if you die. In short, it’s very user-friendly and customizable that suits all your needs.
You can create Waypoints by pressing B and you can teleport them if you wish. You can also choose if you want to see or hide them in the game. They are yet included in your list, and you can access them by pressing ‘U’.
The best part of this Minimap is that it recognizes when you are underground. If you are traveling through abandoned caves and tunnels, wherever you are, it will give you a quick reference of where you are. Combine it with Waypoint and you will never be lost again.
The thing which makes it unique is its custom settings. You can adjust the size as you wish. Adjust the HUD display to show the players, items, and mobs. Wherever it suits you best, rotate it too. Choose your preferred location or choose one of the four presets.
