X ray mod for Minecraft adds an intelligent feature to the game, giving you a greater ability to locate iron, diamonds, chests, lava, water and obsidian. Imagine a tool that makes it easier to find and harvest ore more efficiently. Usually, finding valuable resources in Minecraft requires a lot of aimless wandering, guess work and digging in the ground or torched caves.
Take note that X ray mod won’t make getting to these items easier. It only simplifies finding them. When the mod is launched, game textures disappear and all objects becomes transparent. Thanks to this mod, you can now see what you need. After locating a treasure though, you still have to pull out your tools and get to work.
This mod is most likely to be appreciated by experienced players who have probably tired of the traditional and time consuming method of finding what they need.
A Word of Advice
If you engage in a lot of multiplayer Minecraft, take care to not use mods like this one unless they are allowed. It is not unusual for server administrators to want to maintain some level of fair play on their systems. Under these circumstances, they could monitor player activity. In the case of this mod, if they see you’re not using torches while digging in the dark or spending too time mining at one particular angle, they will assume you’re breaking the rules and could suspend your account or ban you completely.
