SkyBlock Map 1.12.2

If you are a player that is looking for a different kind of survival strategy, or something a bit more difficult than the average Minecraft world can offer, then you should try out one of the many variations of the Skyblock Map 1.12.2. This map is very small and simple, and only comes with a few blocks, a chest and a tree. However, that is the aim, as players have to learn to survive with the smallest amount of resources accessible to them. The player ‘wakes up’ on a floating island no bigger than a 5×5 block. There is a chest and a fully grown tree. The player’s first mission is to get wood, like a normal survival world. However, this is the only tree that is given, and so if the player fails to collect a dropping sapling from the decaying leaves, the player will probably have to start again (It may be handy to have a backup of the world ready to load in to Minecraft in case you lose important starting items). Within the chest, the player will find a small amount of watermelon to grow, a block of ice and a bucket of lava as well as a few other essentials. As well as making a farm from the watermelon, the player has to create a ‘Cobblestone Generator’ using the other two items that are very valuable in the Skyblock world. Once the player has the generator set up properly, they can use their wood that was collected and make a pickaxe to start to collect a lot of cobblestone. With this cobblestone, a player can make a decent sized platform so that they don’t fall off and die, and start a farm with dirt collected. From then on, the player has to survive on their own.

Xaero’s Minimap Mod 1.12.2

Unlike other minimap mods, Xaero’s Minimap mod 1.12.2 is the most stable, vanilla map there is. This means that not only is the map mod less laggy than the others that are available, but it keeps the vanilla Minecraft aesthetics, meaning that players who aren’t looking for game-changer mods can simply install this mod and won’t even realise that it is a mod. The HUD map can be dragged wherever the player decides, and also works in caves too. This means that players can go anywhere in the world of Minecraft and the map will continue to be of use. The map itself by default rotates as the player looks around, making it the first rotating minimap that was created and developed as a Minecraft mod. Not only that, but items are also displayed and presented as red dots upon the map, making it a very unique and original mod to have installed in Minecraft. Xaero’s Minimap mod comes with features such as a Slime Chunk mode, where chunks that slimes spawn can be shown on the minimap. This is extremely helpful and convenient if you are trying to build items like sticky pistons for redstrone contraptions, as instead of searching the world for a slime for slimeballs, players can simply turn on the Slime Chunks setting and hunt slimes. Xaero’s Minimap mod is also packed full of different languages so that players across the world can download and use this mad, making it even more brilliant. There are co-ordinates shown directly under the HUD minimap to help when searching out for loot, meaning that players can easily navigate to certain places. Waypoints have been added to the mod, allowing a player to keep track of their findings and buildings like their houses and other explored areas. Xaero’s Minimap is amazing.
