    From what I have read, people rather Rei's Mini-map but I have been using Zan's Mini-map (voxel map) for a while now and in some ways it seems better to me. I'd like to know which mini-map everybody else prefers?

    Put a poll up in the corner, then you'll be able to see much easier, and people will just vote (as it takes half a second), as opposed to stating their opinion. I like to know why too, though, but polls are still good (just don't overuse it :p). I personally prefer rei's, voxel causes lag issues I prefer to avoid.

    I have mixed feelings. I'm liking some aspects of Zan's map, like mob/player icons, but disliking how the way-points don't seem to respect the dimension they are placed in like Rei's do. Maybe it's a configuration setting somewhere that I haven't found.

    Unless/until a large number of people come on here stating how awesomely awesome a different mini map is, I will stick with what I know and like.
    I have yet to hear any reason that would make me want to switch from rei's

    Rei's. Any mod with the name "Voxel" in it is a laggy mess that I shall always disable.

    To be perfectly fair I have heard some talk about the Rei's minimap leaking memory and causing client performance issues. So I don't use an ingame map, I just keep a text file open with important locations, but I have gotten used to just knowing where stuff is, so I rarely full screen it.

    After all the complaints about lag and the voxel mods, I decided to verify it for myself.

    VoxelMap + liteloader (all other voxel mods disabled)

    Also, wandering around different Mystcraft worlds, and exploration in general, was much smoother while using VoxelMap.

    It won't load for me without liteloader on Ultimate.

    I prefer Rei's, mainly because VoxelMap doesn't render waypoints in the world that are more than one kilometer away. Also, I always mashed Rei's into the far corner of my screen (small and semitransparent), which I just can't do with VoxelMap.

    But, I'm too lazy to disable Voxel and install Rei's into my Ultimate Pack client after every update, so Voxel I am currently using.

    That and I am not a fan of all the radar and teleport options feels vary cheaty to me.

    Rei's is nice and simple can gets the job done.
