When using this version, I highly recommend that you set a maximum realtime map width of 128 blocks or fewer. I was having issues with larger map widths.
As ModLoader is long dead, this version of AutoMap requires the use of Minecraft Forge. For this version, you need to copy minecraftautomap-1.7.10-28.jar from automap_mod to .minecraft/mods
The AutoMap mod no longer announces itself in the chat window the first time you load a world.
This may be the last version of AutoMap that I build. I haven't played Minecraft in years. Each Minecraft patch breaks things worse than the previous one, and I no longer have the time and interest to continue supporting AutoMap. One of these days, probably next time, something will get broken badly enough that it is no longer worth my time to fix it, and that will be the end.
I recommend you check out JourneyMap for your mapping needs in the future.
