Rei’s Minimap Mod is easily one of those mods that can be placed in with any other mod, or any other mod-pack, and yet it will work just fine. Rei’s Minimap is the type of mod that doesn’t add any real substance in terms of content to the game, but it does add a number of features to the game that a lot of players have grown accustom to, and would be considered lost without them.
The first feature of this mod that you’ll undoubtedly notice, something that you will see in the name of the mod itself: minimap. This mod includes a small minimap that gets added to you HUD, and it quickly becomes one very useful tool as it gives the player a bird’s eye view of their nearby location, including buildings, trees, and whatever else is big enough to see. Once you get used to how the minimap itself works, you will quickly realise it is your best friend.
Next feature this mod brings along with it is quite possibly a fan favourite among individuals that play with mod-packs. That feature is the delightful addition of waypoints. All it requires you to do is press a button on your keyboard, and a little display will show up on your screen. From there, it gives the player the option to name it whatever they please. The fun doesn’t stop there however! You can also assign a colour to your waypoints; see the distance from how far or how close you are to that location, and even see the waypoint from underground, regardless of where you are.
Not only all that, but you’re given the option to customize your minimap to your own leisure, via either the size or transparency. On top of that, you can also load up a full sized map to use, which shows a much larger and wider location for you to go around and scavenge, build on, or do whatever you like to.
You take every single one of these small, but incredibly useful features and throw them all into one mod, then you’ve got yourself one incredible mod, no matter how much or how little time you end up spending on it. Just because it isn’t necessarily the biggest mod out there, doesn’t mean it can’t be considered one of the best around!
