I want to make a waypoint to my house so I can go back easily when I finish exploring the world and fighting mobs. How can I make this happen?
I would suggest using
- install Liteloader. Follow the instructions in its thread. For 1.8, from the liteloader thread: "Development builds are available from the Jenkins build server". There's a beta build of Liteloader for 1.8 there
- put the voxelmap .litemod file in your minecraft /mods folder
- launch Minecraft with the liteloader profile
If you have a waypoint mod look in the controls for the hotkey. Once you find it leave controls and press the hotkey then you can set a waypoint. If you don't have any waypoint mods you can pillar up with any block and at the top place a torch. make sure you have a water bucket to slow your fall.
