I am playing on a LAN minecraft and after a while needed a map, but when I went to make the bigger to see more, it only increased once, no matter how many times I went to make it. Is this a glitch or just a new map size or what? I have tried making a new one and it suffers from the same problem.

  • Just to clarify, you're trying to enlarge the map with the recipe of map in the middle and 8 sheets of paper around? – mmatthews Jun 19 '14 at 14:39
  • correct. I have used quite a lot of paper up this way. – AngelicProgrammer Jun 19 '14 at 15:31

Make sure you're not shift clicking it out of your inventory, it won't expand the size if you do that. Also, you have to re-explore all the existing territory when you increase the size of a map, so you might as well make it as large as you'll want and then explore.

No, it's not a bug. You need to move a long way away from your first map, till you're on the edge of it, then make a new one.
