Unlike many other minimap mods, Xaero's minimap keeps the aesthetic of vanilla Minecraft which might even make you forget that it was a mod in the first place. It's also the first rotating square minimap for Minecraft. There is a toggle to make it lock north and not rotate. There are 2 mod editions, full and fair-play (designed for multiplayer). You can place waypoints. The minimap also displays entities, such as players, mobs and items.
You are allowed to make videos using this mod. Using it in your modpacks is ALLOWED as long as a link to one of my mod pages is provided and you do not profit from it (Curse modpacks are OK though).
