Xaero’s Minimap Mod for Minecraft 1.13.2/1.12.2


Making a map in Minecraft can be a tough prospect, especially when you’re just starting off in a new world and it is one of the items you desperately need. That’s a brutal kind of irony when you think about it, but thankfully there are some mods that can alleviate the grief of getting lost in your hundredth new world, or whatever the number might be. Xaero’s Minimap mod gives players a miniature map with a bird’s eye view of their current location and their immediate surroundings. It is essentially the exact same minimap system from the Better PVP Mod, only as a standalone feature.




This is great news for players who have been banned from online servers for using the Better PVP Mod and it is good news even for the ones who haven’t because it gives a reliable, easy-to-read map which is always present. The location of the map can be moved to various corners of the screen, and it works both above and below ground level, seamlessly switching from a surface view to a cave view. Mobs will show up as yellow dots, players as white, usable items as red and other things like picture frames and arrows will appear as purple dots. Xaero’s Minimap mod could be the best map mod in Minecraft today.

Download Xaero’s Minimap Mod


  1. This website SUCKS. Every time I try to click on a link to download any mod, it takes me to Adfly.com so I can download some shit called ODM. Anyone know a place that IS NOT FAKE to download this mod?


  2. Is anyone else’s gave crashing everytime they begin to fight a Blaze or a Ghast? I am using the most recent version, I hope this gets fixed in the next one! Love all of the Xaero’s minimap mods(outside of the nether, haha) keep up the good work.

    • use the stable version of forge, not the latest beta version.
      i had the same issue where game crashed when a mob used a fireball.

  3. I had the white screen till i tried forge 1.8-, I don’t remember where i found it at but aside from the evil white screen either sophisticated wolves is making random things to craft for me or the map is.

  4. Everyone having the problem with the white screen I have figured out that you need to click the right middle of the screen, there is supposed to be a message that asks if you want to update the mod and in order to get off of the white screen is to find the hidden button. I don’t know why it did this to the game but once you find that “no” button it will take you to the start screen of mc.

  5. man 🙁 i really wanted this mod but when i click the link, it brings me to adfly and instead of it being in the top right corner it’s in the middle and restarts the timer every time i hit continue. it does this on many mods i try to download. help!!!

  6. Does definitively not work under Minecraft 1.9. Only upcounting the Version number on this web site ist not what the community wants dear developers!

  7. title shows 1.9 but I can’t find the link to the 1.9 download of the map. I already downloaded the 1.9 forge you have listed

  8. Everyone, I tried this mod from this site here too and it wouldn’t work either. So I thought maybe there is something wrong with the version on this site, and I searched and found a version that actually works. Before my game was crashing on start up, now the mod actually loads.

    Get the version that working for me here:

    Hopefully the link works…

  9. I know what most of the dots on the minimap mean but there are black dots that move really quickly and I can’t figure out what they are. I look at the minimap options and there isn’t anything set to show up as a black dot. What do they represent?

  10. im so happy i found this cuz since zan’s minimap isnt for 1.8 im now using this for 1.8 so i can move away of my home without losing my home

  11. I have forge and yes I have put it in the MODS folder but when I try to teleport to a waypoint it says that there is and invalid UUID is in the invalid format of something HELP (i have a mac)
