For a digital world Minecraft can be a big place. Use the & # 39; infinite & # 39; world type and virtual terrain extends forever in every direction. Locator maps help orient you, especially for younger players who tend to deviate from the Minecraft pack. We'll show you how to make a map in Minecraft so everyone can find their way home.
If you made an empire with the & # 39; flat & # 39; type, you don't need a card. They are only 256 x 256 blocks, which means you probably never stray too far from home or fall off the edge. Maps are best suited for infinite terrain, with five specific sizes you can create to follow anywhere from small to insanely long distances.
Determine your map
Minecraft offers two map types. For this guide, we assume you want the location map as it tracks the position of every player in the realm, not just you.
The basemap (or map only) is also a real map of your realm, but it does not include location tracking. This version is probably better suited to hang on the wall for decoration.
In either case, the map you create doesn't immediately reflect every mountain, river, and desert. Instead, it works the same way as RPG & # 39; s hiding undiscovered area, slowly pulling back the cloudy veil as you venture out. Ultimately, your travels will reveal the entire realm.
A card begins to reveal your realm as soon as it is opened ̵

What You Need
Both the base map and the locator map require specific tools and ingredients. We list them below along with screenshots in case you are new to Minecraft .
