Xaero’s Minimap

There are many Minimap options for Minecraft but few are as clean as Xaero’s. It has a very clean interface and blends well with the overall Minecraft aesthetic. You can set waypoints manually and even deathpoints will be created automatically if you die. Overall it’s very customizable to suit your needs.


Waypoints can be created by pressing B and you can even teleport to them if you want. You can also choose whether you want to see those in game or have them hidden. They’ll still remain in your list regardless, which can be access by pressing U.


Possibly the best part of this minimap is that it recognizes when you’re underground. This is greatly helpful if you’re trekking through caves and abandoned mines and need a quick reference of where you are. Combine that with waypoints and you’ll never get lost again.


The custom settings are what makes this map truly personal. You can adjust the size exactly to your liking. Set the display HUD to show players, items, and mobs. And even move it around wherever it works best for you. Choose wherever you want it to be or choose from one of four presets.

  1. This is extremely awesome and useful, though sometimes banned on servers. But it’s worth it!

  2. I’m hosting my own server (so the wife & I can play with our niece) and would like to be able to share waypoints (i.e. I make a waypoint, and it shows up on each of our waypoint lists). Is this a possibility?

    • I know this is a little late, but you can just share waypoints using the TP command. Just have someone Teleport to the waypoint then use /tp it might be a little time consuming but it’s a good alternative. Also, on your own time, a fun command to use is /atlantis. not gonna say what it does though. hehe.

  3. This is actually useful.
    you can teleport to the place where you died in 1 second and get your stuff back.
    and you can see from the map!

      • Or just create your world allowing cheats.

    • you need cheats to be enabled because it is basically a command
