The X-Ray Mod makes mining significantly easier. Using the X-Ray Mod, players can see through virtually every block in the game in order to reveal the useful ore modules beneath. It might seem like a minor addition, but having x-ray vision available at the click of a button can be extraordinarily useful.
The X-Ray Mod 1.6 comes with 5 basic functions:
-Players can press ‘X’ to enter x-ray vision mode
-Players can press ‘L’ to turn on the nightlight
-Players can press ‘R’ to find redstone
-Players can press ‘F’ to fly
-Players can press ‘C’ to toggle a better coordinates system
When players combine x-ray vision and night vision, they’ll find that mining has never been this easy. Instead of guessing where various streams of ore are hidden, you can pinpoint each stream with 100% accuracy. And, you won’t have to bring 20 torches with you when you’re going underground. X-Ray Mod is such a handy tool that you’ll never want to get rid of it.
X-Ray Mod 1.6 currently allows players to view the following types of blocks:
The X-Ray Mod’s interface makes it easy to toggle these types of ore on and off. If you’re just looking for diamonds, for example, you can turn on the ‘diamonds’ filter and then look around you to instantly reveal diamond blocks all over (and under) the surrounding area.
When x-ray vision is activated from an aboveground location, players can also see hidden mineshafts, bases, and mob farms. When in multiplayer mode, you’ll even be able to spot other players and traps from a long ways away. As you can imagine, this provides a significant advantage over the competition.
As of the Minecraft 1.7.4/1.7.2/1.6.4 update, this mod doesn’t report itself to multiplayer servers, which means that players can easily use it when playing online. However, clever server admins will often be able to spot players who use this mod. After all, you’ll be digging an unlit tunnel straight into the ground, and even the most clueless server admins will be able to figure out what’s going on.
Whether you’re trying to make single player mining significantly easier or you want to get an advantage over the competition in multiplayer servers, the X-Ray Mod is a popular way to enhance vanilla Minecraft.
