Let’s talk about how to make a map bigger in Minecraft! Well, Maps are very useful for navigation for those of you who like to explore. Likewise in Minecraft, we can create maps. In this post, I will explain how to make maps in Minecraft.
There are 2 types of maps in Minecraft, namely a map without a compass and a map with a compass, the difference is if a map without a compass we can’t know our position, while those using a compass can know our position because there is a white point that will move if we move.
Ok, this article will explain how to make a Minecraft map bigger. However, beforehand, let’s first discuss how to make a map in Minecraft.
How to make a map?
Well, how to make it? To make a map is not difficult, we have to find and make the materials first, such as:
- Sugar Canes
After you get the materials, all the time you make the map. For maps without pointers, you only need to place 9 papers on the manufacturing table while those that use pointers are only 8 papers and 1 compass.
We still can’t use the map that you created earlier because it is still an empty map. For us to use it, you have to hold the blank map, and then the words for the map will appear, click on the text, then the blank map will automatically be filled with the terrain where we are and the map is already available.
Materials needed to make a Minecraft’s map bigger
In this case, you need some needed materials for upgrading the map to the 4th level in which this level is the largest one.
- 32 papers
- A map
The ways for creating a map with different size (bigger)
Preparing your locator map
For the first time, you should have your map of the locator in which it has been crafted by using a compass and 8 papers. This kind of map will allow you to know your location and your friends’ location joining the world yours. This map is the smallest, exactly a map with 0 levels.
Upgrading your small Map to the 1st level
For upgrading your map’s small size, you must upgrade the map of yours from 0 levels to be the 1st level. For doing this step, you should add your map with 0 level and 8 papers more to a grid of crafting with size 3×3. So, your 0 level map has been upgraded to level 1. It will be larger than before.
Upgrading your 1st level Map to the 2nd Level
For upgrading this map level to be even larger, you should upgrade it again, that is from the 1st level to be 2nd level map. So, you should add your map with levels 1 and 8 papers more to your grid of crafting with size 3×3. So, your map will be larger.
Upgrading your 2nd level Map to the 3rd level
For upgrading this map level to be much larger, such as the step above, you must upgrade your 2nd level map to be level 3. As usual, you must add your 2nd level map and also 8 papers more to a grid of crafting with 3×3 size. Then, your map has been in level 3.
Upgrading your 3rd level Map to Level 4
For upgrading the map to level 4, the largest size, directly upgrade your 3rd level map to be the 4th level. So, add your map with levels 3 and 8 papers more to a grid of crafting with 3×3 size. So, your map has been in level 4 with the largest size ever in Minecraft
In this map, the dot with white color is yours and a dot with other colors is your friend’s. As a player, the dot of each player will automatically show the players’ current location. Congratulations, you have made it.
