ZooM Mod Installer 1.7.9

Shooting at targets from a long distance in Minecraft can make landing a hit next to impossible, especially if the lighting level is low or if there are obstacles between the player and the target. Zoom Mod is a small mod which adds a binocular effect to Minecraft, making it very useful for the situation described as well as a handful of others. For instance, looking to see if a pumpkin isn’t just a block of orange wool from a distance, or looking to see if there are any caves several chunks away without exploring on foot, are both good ways ZoomMod makes Minecraft easier for players.


Zoom Mod is best installed directly to the Minecraft, without the use of Forge or another mod launcher program. The instructions on how to do this are found along with the mod download at the creator’s website and should be followed exactly as provided to avoid any mix ups by the player. ZoomMod has recently been updated to work with Minecraft right up to 1.7.9, the latest version of the game, so there should be no compatibility issues whatsoever if it is installed correctly. It also shouldn’t interfere with many other mods, since it doesn’t really add any content to the game.

The zoom button is nice but it does have rather limited use. Perhaps the best use for Zoom Mod is seeing the bottoms of lakes, rivers and oceans without actually diving down to the bottom, where low light and the threat of drowning make travel prohibitive. It won’t help so much for seeing through lava in places like The Nether, but then there aren’t many other mods that help with that either. For changing textures to make them easier to see through, look for resource packs which modify the particular block you have in mind.
