Radar and minimap mods are very popular in the Minecraft community. After all, players have grown accustomed to having useful minimaps in other games, and dealing with Minecraft’s limited mapping system can be a hassle.
Turning to mods like RadarBro solves that problem. The uniquely-named RadarBro mod gives players a circular radar screen which highlights the location of nearby:
Players can use their radar screen to tag players as allies or enemies. Allies show up as green on the radar screen, while enemies appear as red. Players can also customize various radar features, like the ability to toggle auto rotation on and off.
In the future, the mod’s creator, Cali Alec, plans to give players the ability to zoom in and out of the radar while adding customizable height filter options and even a notification or warning system when threats approach.
The mod is simple but effective. If you’re looking to add a useful radar screen to Minecraft and reveal the location of all nearby entities, this is one mod that will do that for you.
