JourneyMap is one of the oldest mods available for Minecraft 1.12 and, even today, it’s one of the most functional and useful mods out there. It’s a mod that’s supposed to be applied on both client and server sides, and it can make your Minecraft experience considerably more enjoyable by implementing a very useful feature into the game. It’s worth mentioning that JourneyMap doesn’t really make any changes to the gameplay mechanics of Minecraft but, what it does bring to the table, is a whole lot of information that can aid you tremendously whenever you’re playing Minecraft.
The JourneyMap mod features a full-fledged map that’ll keep mapping your Minecraft world in real time as you explore through it. JourneyMap will capture each and every important detail about every place you go in Minecraft, and it’ll store it in a map that you can view whenever you want to. The map that this mod implements can either be viewed in-game in full screen or, if you prefer, you can view it in the comfort of your own browser. It’s important to bear in mind that the JourneyMap mod requires a bit of configuration before it can become fully functional but, once the initial configuration has been done, the rest will take care of itself on your own.
JourneyMap comes in two different editions, and you can pick the one that suits your situation the most. The first mode is the FairPlay mode that disables cave-mapping and radar during multiplayer and the second mode is Unlimited which, as the name suggests, enables all the features of the mod and doesn’t hold back on anything. All said and done, JourneyMap is an insanely useful Minecraft mod that’ll put a ton of information at your disposal by mapping every single aspect of the game world in real time.
JourneyMap Mod for Minecraft 1.12 and 1.11.2 Changelogs
- Critical Bugfix: Pressing the Reset button in Options Manager / Minimap could crash the game.
- Rebuild for latest Forge compatibility (1.11 only)
- Improved support for coloring blocks in some mods like AbyssalCraft that use Material.GRASS but don’t inherit from Block.grass.
- Normal surface/cave mapping is now supported in dimensions without a sky, instead of just cave mapping.
- Web Map simplified to simply show player location and waypoints. Mob radar no longer supported.
- Bugfix: Lag from overzealous logging on texture pack changes or unloading dimensions.
