  • Markers (spawn, players, villages, etc.)
  • Block highlighter/finder
  • Overlays (biomes, caves, chunk properties, statistics, etc.)
  • Biome based coloring
  • Rendering blocks using in-game textures
  • Shadows
  • Support for Bedrock Edition saves

I have purchased Minecraft for Windows 10 / Bedrock Edition too see what can I do 🙂 Huge mountains in beta 1.16.220.50 are awesome. Can’t wait to see them in uNmINeD.

[WIP] Selection and overlays

  • Post comments:1 Comment

I’m working on a selection tool to make image export easier and to support other upcoming features:

Developing a rectangle selection tool

The new rendering workflow makes possible to implement various overlays based on any chunk information like data version, status, last update, inhabited time, entities, or the amount of a given block type.

This is a heat map showing inhabited time (how long the players have been in the area):

GUI on Linux and macOS

I tried to port uNmINeD from the Windows-only WPF to Avalonia, a cross platform GUI framework for .NET.

The first quick attempt went relatively easy. There were some minor issues, and now it works on Windows, Linux, and presumably on macOS as well.

You can download it here.

Please let me know if it works on macOS!
