How to put markers in minecraft to never get lost

      What are bookmarks?

      It's hard to know what a person means when they talk about "markers" in Minecraft. An indicator is anything that marks a location and it can be anything from a large tower that can be seen from a distance, to a banner that can be read from a map. Thanks to bookmarks you will be able to easily find your home in Minecraft .



      markers on a map

      In Minecraft, we can read a map to see the terrain you have already explored. If you've used them, you know that everything is viewed from a high perspective and that the map uses "boxes" colored to indicate which block is in each area.

      Some map features are unique to the Java version of Minecraft and others from the Bedrock version (Windows 10 version). So here we explain what "marker" means in each version.

      Java Edition

      In the Java edition, the map is created with 8 pieces of paper and a compass. When you create a map, you can automatically see where you are and where you are looking.

      Bookmarks are created using banners . If you have the map in hand, you can press the "use" button (usually right click) on the banner. This will save the banner's location on the map until you break the banner or "use" the map on it again.



      Multiple banners can be stored on a map, and if the banner has a name, it is displayed on the map. This is quite useful for marking cave entrances or similar spots. After all, buildings are usually clearly visible on the map without needing to use them.

      Rock Edition

      In Bedrock Edition, you can create a map without using a compass, using just 9 pieces of paper. In this case the "marker" is what indicates where the player is and where is he looking.

      A map created without a compass does not have a marker and can be added to it by combining the map with a compass. In this edition of Minecraft, banners have no function with the map.

      ground markers

      Whether you have a map or not, altering the terrain of the world is a very effective way to mark points. You can use it on a small scale, leaving traces of wool or torches. You can also use it on a large scale, creating towers or pits. Some effective bookmarks I'm:

      Within

      Smoke rises and a smoke line is very easy to see from a distance, even in poor visibility conditions. A perimeter marked by fires it's very useful. If you put a block of hay under the fire, the smoke rises higher.

      Lighting bolt

      At night, when the sun's illumination is low and in forests and caves where the sun does not penetrate, the illuminated areas are very easy to see. That's why the cheers they are excellent indicators of terrain in these cases.


      Also other markers like Lanterns or Lamps they are useful, but more difficult to make. That's why we recommend flashlights, which are cheap and easy to carry.


      Torres

      If the target is to be seen from afar, one is better illuminated tower . Also, you can use a well-made tower to store items and protect yourself from threats.

      The bread crumbles

      Un trail is the most efficient way to mark the terrain. Here we recommend some items that you can use for this:


      • Twist: sparkle and you can use them to mark a path
      • Light Up Pumpkin : Lights up and has a face pointing in one direction
      • Signals: you can write the name of the place and draw arrows (--->)
      • Grassy path: "using" a shovel on the ground, a path is created that is very easy to see.
      • Wool: it is of various colors and can be used to indicate different destinations and even different directions.

      The world of Minecraft is huge, so it's always a good idea to have a compass pointing home. Bring out your adventurous spirit!
