Minecraft maps are down right boring, luckily there are mods to improve it.
Some map-generating mods like Zen minimap or Rei’s Minimap features an updating mini map on the side of the screen without the need for players to craft it. These mods are obviously advantageous to the player but it may be too overpowered and may break the game’s immersion for some.
Unlike those mods, Antique Atlas features a unique item that function like the vanilla map item but with an improve RPG-like art and feel into it. This fancy looking book is a record of maps on all your visited loction.
The GUI is based on RPG games like Zelda and works in conjunction with Quests mod.
The map features an antique art that can be dragged or moved with arrow keys. The map art is similar to the Lord of The Rings maps on the original books – making the RPG element feel more genuine.
Every version of this mod introduces new features including an Atlas API, the ability to export PNG image to the current dimension of the map, map markers, and zoom in and out functionality of the map.
For immersive purposes, the atlast requires a book and a compass to craft. Right clicking on the empty atlast will create a map in regards to the player who activated it.
By exporting the map, you will get a PNG image similar to the one shown above. The image is best for RPG servers with sites that promote it.
