Common Problems

Duplicate villagers when using other mods with NPC tracking (UI Info Suite & Foxyfficiency)

UI Info Suite and Foxyfficiency have a feature to show villagers, and as a result having it installed along with this mod will show duplicate villagers. To continue using this mod, there are options in UI Info Suite and Foxyfficiency to disable just the NPC tracking (look at the respective mod pages for more info).

Vanilla Map shows instead of Mod Map
This is most likely due to a conflict with a Content Patcher mod that replaces the map. You will have to manually remove the map from the conflicting Content Patcher mod (see Using Recolored Maps above) to resolve the conflict.


Why use NPC Map Locations when mods like UI Info Suite do the same thing and more?

  • A lot more accurate tracking, that much is guaranteed.
  • Works for Multiplayer
  • Tracks players as well. This would be hard to implement well if it were not accurate (made possible by redrawing the map among other things)
  • QoL features including differentiation of NPCs drawn over each other, different draw order based on priority
  • Also shows farm buildings including cabins in multiplayer
  • A lot more customizations and configurations including when to show/hide or showing quests and birthdays
  • Support for any custom NPCs or npc customizations (sprites/names)
  • Support for custom locations or location customizations (extended farms)
  • Support for all localizations
  • Minimap HUD feature

There's no denying that UI Info Suite is generally more useful, but since NPC Map Locations is very specialized, it does this one thing very well.  With all that being said, I don't think there's any reason to use one mod over the other when you can just use both ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
