ArtMap Guide

Welcome to ArtMap!

ArtMap allows players to create and share unique artworks in-game. To get started, you'll need to craft an Easel and Canvas. You can also craft Paint Buckets with different coloured dyes. All the recipes you will need are available in-game with the /artmap command.

Getting Started

Place an Easel by right-clicking on the ground. Once you mount your Canvas on the Easel, you can right-click to ride the Easel and begin painting.
To paint, click the Canvas with different dyes. Right-Click and drag to draw lines and curves. You can also click with a Paint Bucket to fill in an area.
Press shift to dismount, or use /artmap save <title> to save and retrieve your artwork. You can use commands to delete artworks or view other players' work. Use /artmap in-game for more information.
And That's it, you're now an ArtMap master. Happy painting!

Note: Using an Eye of Ender will make the canvas point transparent.
