Cartographer Mod for Minecraft 1.7.2 and 1.6.4

Cartographer Mod


This mod basically offers a way to make and place huge maps on walls in frames within the game. Apart from offering maps side by side in a normal Vanilla fashion, you can create a large map that connects to itself like a real map would.  This is a cool and useful wall decoration that really displays its potential the bigger the map is.


This is the setup for maps and what it would look as without this mod:

The look of the map after this mod is installed looks a lot more fancy and usable.

Key Features

  • Offers giant and great looking maps to the game
  • Permits maps from different areas to seamlessly connect

How to Use :

Install as in the instructions and place maps you make in distinctive areas into the frames like pictured above and this will make a large map.  The creator recommends setting Jack o’ Lanterns behind the maps for lighting and avoiding any rendering bugs that Minecraft seems to have.

 Pros and Cons


  1. A much better looking map system that is both beautiful and useful for locating things
