The JourneyMap mod is a great live mapper that’s super simple to use. It has a nice, clean interface and is very detailed both in the minimap and full map. Just hit ‘J’ to bring up the full map and options menu.

The minimap can be toggled to whatever corner you prefer and can even be toggled off with a hotkey. It also lists your current coordinates and can even be adjusted in size.

A neat feature is the ability to automatically generate the map of the world you’re in. So instead of trekking through the entire world, you can have the map generate everything that’s around you. It’s very convenient if you’ve just started the mod with an already established world and don’t want to travel just see where everything lies. It can also show any mobs, pets or nearby players.

One of the key features to Journeymap is the ability to view your map on your iOS or Android device. All you need is to be on the same LAN with your IP address and the default port 8080 in the URL bar. You can even schedule auto-mapping and save your map right from your device!

For the simplicity and ease of use of this mod, it ranks high among its competitors. The developer’s website is also helpful for any configuration needs/questions.

  1. great mod – only issue is the size of the map, its TINY. I’ve set it to “large” but I can barely see it. going to try out the internet view

    • @cameron: There’s a full Waypoint Manager since 4.0
      @Donna: Use +/- to zoom in and out. You’re probably zoomed all the way out

  2. This is a very nice and in-depth mapping mod… I wonder though… Does it show where players are?
    Also, won’t a Schrodinger cat problem arise for the chunks if you load them in via map versus via explorations, would the same result or would different results arise from the same chunk. Holy cow!… This mod is the first mod i know that has caused chunks to be theorized as superimposed…
    Good job techbrew, keep up the mind boggling work.

    • it shows where players are if friends are playing with you, but it does not when your using singleplayer

  3. Is there a way to gate this mod behind an item? it would be a huge help for immersion’s sake. The item I had in mind was the cybernetic eye from the Cyberware mod.
