These features only exist in outdated versions of Minecraft.

In the Indev versions of the game, you can take a screenshot of the map from an Isometric perspective using F7. This is not to be confused with a birds-eye view.

When the game captures an isometric image it will save the current location of all mobs and show any and all alterations to the map the player has made that would be visible from the perspective of the sun (at sunrise). The player will not be visible unless the player was in third person view (toggled with F5) before taking the Isometric screenshot.

The Isometric screenshot will save to your local user folder as "mc_map_####.png" where #### represent the number of the screen shot starting at 0000 up to 9999.

Limitations[edit | edit source]

An example of an screenshot displaying the bug of not capturing chunks not in the players FOV
  • Can only capture the player's sprite when in 3rd person mode.
  • Due to a glitch the screenshot will only render blocks that are in the player's FOV, and everything else will either be black or show blocks under the ground.

Infdev generator[edit | edit source]

This cannot be done by pressing F7 in Infdev or any later versions, but a separate page used to be set up in the Minecraft website to displays an isometric view of the map for Infdev versions.[1] This tool no longer exists on the Minecraft website. This tool used to be able to zoom in and out, switch between different worlds, and change the time of day.
