Are you the type to get lost and explore impressive distances? Do you want to know where you died or do you want to have some landmarks? Today, for the subject of this article, you will discover the JourneyMap mod; it is one of the complete Minecraft mod maps that will allow you a most enjoyable adventure!
JourneyMap is a mod that adds a mini-map to your interface. It also adds a full-screen map that lets you see all the places you’ve visited before.
Why choose this mod and not another? Quite simply because, to my knowledge, it is the most complete of all, with dozens and dozens of options that allow you to customize it however you want. Also, it will enable you to browse the already loaded chunks without even being there. Finally, it also allows you to see the map of your world in real-time on your browser.
It also has a very well done waypoint system. From now on, you will not be able to get lost!
