Use [edit]

Change cards [edit]

Map tables are used to clone maps, resize the map and lock it. For this you need an additional item, which you combine with the card. You place the card already written on in the upper slot and the object to be combined in the lower slot.
Bedrock-exclusive: A card can also be renamed in the card table without using up a level.

The following items can be combined with a card:

paperThe map will be enlarged so that it is now on a smaller scale. The content will be deleted.
Blank cardThe map is duplicated. You get two copies of the same card.
Pane of glassThe card is blocked. This means that no more changes can be made to the map.
  • The inventory of a card table, with just one card

Profession for villagers
