The Minecraft Overviewer

a high-resolution Minecraft world renderer with a Google Maps interface


Overviewer 0.9 released!

For an intro to Overviewer in general, see the front page of our documentation site.

Support for Minecraft 1.2 worlds is now merged into the "master" branch of our repository!

Those of you who have repositories with "anvil" or "rewrite" checked out will need to switch to the master branch (git checkout master).

Those of you who have the old "master" branch checked out will need to see This Post to upgrade to the new version. Config files are incompatible with this upgrade, so this is important!

Also to note if you're upgrading from 0.4 (the old master branch): remember that due to changes made to the format you WILL need to re-render your maps from scratch. Trying to update existing maps will NOT work. Also due to major changes to the web assets, you should not simply copy over custom web assets to the new version. In particular, custom overviewerConfig.js files can cause strange problems.

The new version has been arbitrarily named 0.9. Windows builds are now available on our downloads page.

As always, stop in on IRC with any questions or just to say hi!

This is still in beta because there are a few features yet missing, but since Minecraft 1.2 is released, we felt that it was more important to have the master branch compatible with the current Minecraft. Here are the features yet to be implemented:

  • Signs, Spawn markers, and other Points of Interest
  • Ordering of renders and worlds in the javascript interface Edit: Done! Mar 6 2012
  • Overlays
