X-Ray Mod for Minecraft 1.10.2/1.10/1.9.4


Hunting down resources in caves, abandoned mineshafts and sunken, underground fortresses is one of the more exciting parts of Minecraft. Who knows when that patch of coal or iron you chop out of a wall will lead to a dungeon with mob spawners and chests, or whether it will be a long drop to a fiery end in a pit of lava that waits for you on the other side of that next wall? Well, now you can know with the Xray Mod 1.10.2, which works a lot like any old X-Ray resource pack you might find.


By turning specific blocks like dirt or stone invisible, the textures for these blocks will simply disappear from your view. The blocks will still be there of course – you can’t see them but they’re still there. With all of the filler made invisible, you can more easily find your way to veins of coal, iron, gold, diamonds and other valuable resources buried beneath the ground in Minecraft. If you want to play on Hardcore mode or go through Survival without turning on cheats, the XRay Mod is probably the most powerful tool around for helping you to quickly amass resources and get the goods you need.


Of course, actually using the Xray Mod will be considered cheating by many players. Server owners don’t like the mod either, and there are specific plugins which watch exclusively for people finding patches of ores and metals too frequently while playing online. If you use this mod on a multiplayer server you should expect to get banned, either automatically when the server security system detects you using bad mods, or a little down the line when some moderator or owner notices you finding too many valuable in too short a time. The bottom line is, don’t use this mod online.


If you’re playing alone though, why go through the bother of digging through stacks and stacks of blocks of dirt, stone and other worthless materials to get what you want? Nobody actually like the digging and mining parts of Minecraft; they love pulling ores and gems out of the world though, and you need to do the first thing before you can do the second thing in most cases. The X-Ray Mod features a config file which will let you “erase” any blocks you like, so you can focus on just the resources you need or want to find and forget everything else.

  1. I have installed the 1.8 and it works great. My questing is: can I use this mod to find spawners? I searched for a little time without succes.

  2. I have installed this mod on my Mac, but can’t get it to turn on? I pressed the “X” as per directions. Any thoughts?

  3. Bug found:
    Facing east sometimes wont show ores in X-Ray mode
    (dont know if its just me or if its cause im on a realms server but i have noticed this)

  4. Hey i installed the auto version. I tried it and it worked, but then i checked my chests, and all the chests except 2 were missing all the items the chests contained. what have happened? any solutions to how i can get the items back?

  5. so its been working, fine, installed perfectly since a few days ago up until now, it doesn’t work on realms anymore, will there be an update on this?

  6. When I press “X” Everything is displayed properly, however it’s really dark and I Can’t see anything underground. How do I fix this

  7. Doesen’t work very well, e.g. when I am like in y 68, ores appear, but if I go to like y 20, only a few ores appear.

  8. When I try to download the x-ray mod instead of giving me the jar file like it should it gives me a zip file and I opened that and everything in the file. None of them downloaded the mod. What am I doing wrong?

    • You cold rename the file “(the name of the file).jar” or just right click the file, select “open with” option and select the Java one.

  9. v 2.15.2 still shows all forms of hardened clay, its just not usable in mesa biomes (which is my prefered building biome). Otherwise, its great.

  10. When I press x it shows some of the minerals, but not all of them. When im mining and I get near them they show up, but not before.

  11. this really works!! im not lieng!!i can find dougens!! tunnels!! and all things i need to find!! no lag!! thanks so mutchman!! 😀 and btw fly?? great idea =D

  12. it actually works!! i can see everything!! i can fly!! i can see redstone!! and everything i wanted is all in this mod!!
    (im not kidding! thanks man! :D)

  13. When I try open the JAR file to install it, it just opens CMD and then immediately closes it. Please help me!

  14. Hello, When I try to open the file, for a split second a CMD opens and closes, then nothing happens. Please help!

  15. So i downloaded the mod, but when i click on the file it doesnt give me the installer. It opens the file instead. Im very frustrated because it seems there is no other way to get the mod other than this installer. Help?

  16. Hello I am not sure what is happening but like two weeks ago when I downloaded the mod xray I just had to double click it and make it as my version on minecraft and now that is not working for some reason can anybody please tell me what I am doing wrong

    What it gives me when I download it : http://prntscr.com/6t6sya

  17. At the start of the page you mentioned that there is a update for 1.8.4 but there is NO DOWNLOAD LINK!!! Y? Y? YYYYYYYYYY?

  18. I love this mod!!! This isn’t a computer reply, those are annoying, but anyways, this works great! In Ultra Hard Core, I always am able to sneak past the admins and get the diamonds. And what’s great is that in team UHC I blend right in! Its so great!!!

  19. I clicked the link for 1.8.3 and I opened Minecraft, opened a survival world and pressed x but nothing happened. When I try to click on the file it just shows a ton of symbols. Please help!

  20. I had absolutley no idea that you could fly in this, nearly got caught using it by my teammates. Although, it does work when you’re trying to get past lava/water.

  21. I download it and i have done everything. But after i run it it says to install it. After i install it, it says that Xray installer has been installed. But i open up my Minecraft but it the mod still doesn’t work. Is there something where u have to add folders into other folders?? plz help and reply C:

  22. Hello, I just tested the mod and works great 🙂 but I noticed that maps don’t work…is this a known bug or is there something I’m missing? thanks a bunch

  23. Just wondering but if i get this mod and turn it on and off, would the host be notified of my using? I am talking about hosting an offline server with a couple of friends. :p

  24. I just get a .jar file whith the latest version. The instructions say I should open it, so I tried executing it both as normal user and as admin. Nothing.

    I also “opened” the file, just as it says, whith win-rar. Nothing usefull for instalation purposes inside.

    I am clueless as to how this mod is installed.

  25. Can you please do 1.8 without installer too because I have my minecraft on atlauncher and it’s harder to install with the installer 🙁

  26. I keep getting the ‘there is a new version available’ message but the version I download from above is the same version I already have!

  27. this is a good mod an all but its missing a way to change what blocks are visible while useing xray. it is great for survival servers and single player worlds but if you play on a jail server where the mines are made out of clay you cant use it 🙁

  28. Downloaded the 4.0.12 Yesterday, and was running fine. Now, I get a Message on the screen saying that there is an update available. Is there really an update that the app is pointing to, or is this just a bug?

  29. When I press the redstone button (r), I want to add the dropper and dispenser to this, and remove the redstone so all I see is the dropper and dispenser. How do i achieve this? Please do step by step b/c I don’t know that much about modding. Thanks!!

  30. Whilst it does work as it should, I do prefer the old version where enabling fly would keep you on the ground and not speed you up. That way you could enable fly and not taking fall damage.

  31. On the latest one it keeps saying that there is an update availabe , 4.1.5 to 4.1.7 but I cant get it off, I cant update it and there isnt a newer version on the site so It appears Im stuck with it for now.

  32. I installed the mod, but i cant start minecraft. im using sponge edition launcher. version im using: 1.8.8

  33. every time i try to download the mod i click it when i downloaded i click keep and it openes another download link how do i fix this? i keep cl;icking open the file but it just openes another download?

  34. I think there should be an option to easily find certain mobs and/or players. That would be a really nice addition.

  35. When ever I click the download link a new tab opens and closes very quickly… Unless im clicking the wrong thing which is possible i guess… Can anyone help?

  36. hi, i like to use other mods with other mods to have the best minecraft experience but this mod is not compatible with other mods because it is not a simple “put in mods folder mod” i would like it if you would be able to use mods like vein miner instead of having to just mine the ores the regular way.

  37. When I press X to activate X-ray, I see all the way to bedrock, with just a few deposits of just about every type of ore. I can see Coal for instance, but only a few deposits. Then, when mining through transparent blocks (stone) I encounter Coal deposits, which suddenly appear out of nowhere. Other ore types also appear suddenly while I’m mining my way in a straight line through an area which appears to be devoid of any deposits at all.

    Is this possibly some type of server-side x-ray prevention? Or, could it be something else?

  38. I have a completely rebooted hard drive, and so whatever program i used before to download this, I no longer have. I downloaded this but was told there is nothing to run it with. Can you help?

  39. i already installed it, and it run normally. but when i press the j button it didn’t work, there is no x ray. please help?

  40. Important Questions
    1 how do i get to use fly
    2 how do i make more profiles for more differnt sets for x ray and how do i set a key for it

  41. Is there a requirement on what type of folder it has to be installed on? because it was installed as a winrar and it isnt working

  42. hy, dude, it won’t work… i mean idk what it have, if i press “x”, the map seems like it reload… and my FPS drop… if i press again, my map seems to reload and FPS is geeting up… but the X-ray don’t work 🙁

    is here a way to reset settings? i try to delete the version, the minecraft, reinstall all… but it is the same, please help me!

  43. That’s what the author of this mod said 3 days ago (March 9, 2016):
    AmbientOcclusion: “For all those asking: I’m hoping to have 1.9 out by the end of the weekend.”

    @AmbientOcclusion: Thank you for your awesome job with this xray mod

  44. Can anyone help me? I can’t get this to install, and I’ve been trying for months! Java keeps giving me this error message that says there was an error with my switches. I have uninstalled and re-installed java, and I am going crazy! I just want the xray mod.

  45. Whenever I try opening minecraft with X-ray it crashes after around 3 seconds, is this because of my mac or is it something else?

  47. Hi, Xray was working just fine but when I updated to Windows 10, it stopped working, and I can’t launch both Minecraft and Xray at the same time. I can still launch the game without Xray, but we all prefer using Xray… ^^ Any ideas?

  48. When I press J for the interface the text is all messed up. It is showing as all sorts of special characters. I am running MC 1.8 and used the v15 download.

  49. PLEASE HELP!! When I press J to bring up the user interface all of the text is in special characters, not english. I downloaded XRay-15 (the newest one) and am playing on MC 1.8. Any ideas???

  50. um hi i really like this but would it be possible to get this with out the xray parts just the flight bright and info bits my pc cant handle optifine and or forge so im unable to get mods that do the same things 🙂 cheers

  51. i downloaded 1.9.4 and 1.9 mod but i cant get xray to work (by pressing j/x/c/l). i am pretty sure that it is on because on the top left it shows my co-ordinates. I am using my profile name not forge with the version 1.9.4-XRay and 1.9-XRay it was working before for me on 1.9 then i updated it and it wont work i tried reinstalling both but it didnt work can someone tell me what i can do. Thx

  52. Still waiting for 1.9.4… So many mods take forever to be updated… And so much lying on all websites saying that the mods are 1.9.4 but they really aren’t, like really?

  54. For some reason the x-ray31 file closes immediately every time I try to open it. Can anyone help me with this?

  55. When I press J it opens the in-game console, but once I open it, I cannot do anything to get out of it. How do I get out of it and continue my gameplay?

  56. I press J, create a new profile and use it, or just use the Cave Finder one, and it doesn’t change. It just says on the standard Xray one, even if I change it to Cave Finder or another one I’ve made. Any idea why?

  57. How i will active the X-Ray? I will press the X Button, but the comp will do nothing. Do you help me, please?
