If you have the Aesir rank, you can easily generate Map Art in seconds such as in the example below.
Example of generated Map Art
You can use any publicly-accessible link from the internet that is a direct link to a PNG, JPG, JPEG, or GIF file (won't animate).
- If you want to resize, add the width and height after resize: e.g. /maptool new [url] resize 2 4
- You can change the scaling method by replacing the resize keyword in the command by:
- resize-stretched to stretch the image to the surface (the image could be distorted); or
- resize-covered to ensure the image covers the whole surface (the image will never be distorted, but some parts may be lost near the borders).
Now that you've generated your piece of art, it's time to place it in the world. To do this, you must have the required itemframes. For example, if you generated a 5x5 map, you will need a total of 25 itemframes.
Place the empty item frames on a wall, enough to host the whole map. Then right-click on the bottom-left-frame with the generated map in your hand. And boom, your map art is placed!
To later remove the Map Art, simply shift-click somewhere on the image and the whole artwork will be taken down in one go.
You can hover over the generated Map Art in-game for more information and details specific to that piece of art.
- You can create up to 10,000 generated Maps per world. (Asgard/Midgard/Vanaheim). For example, if you make a map that is 5x5 that is equivalent to 25 maps; or 25 out of your maximum of 10,000.
- Generating any NSFW content or similar will get you banned.
- Each Minecraft world can only have up to 2.147.483.647 maps in total, including vanilla ones. This is a hard-cap in the game and cannot be bypassed. This is why there is a limit per player, and why it is restricted to Aesir.
- Map Art can currently not be placed on the floor.
