BaseFinder is a Minecraft hack that helps the user to find other players' bases by highlighting blocks that are typically man-made in a customizable color (default: red).

BaseFinder can be especially useful when used in combination with NewChunks and/or PlayerFinder. First PlayerFinder can determine the approximate location of other players from very far away, then NewChunks can highlight which chunks other players have visited, and finally BaseFinder can highlight the individual blocks that players have placed within those chunks and reveal any underground bases.

BaseFinder can also be used to find hidden loot chests in dungeons, though ChestESP more optimized for that task.

BaseFinder doesn't actually have a list of man-made blocks to search for. It only has a list of blocks to ignore (natural blocks). BaseFinder highlights everything that isn't on this list.

The default list of natural blocks is quite comprehensive, but it may be necessary to add or remove blocks on servers that use custom terrain generation.


In-game description“Man-made blocks will be highlighted in this color.”
Default value#FF0000 (red)

The Color setting in BaseFinder allows players to customize the color that man-made blocks are highlighted in. By default, the color is set to red, but this can be changed to any color that the user prefers. Changing the color can allow players to more easily distinguish highlighted blocks from the rest of the environment and thus make it easier to find hidden bases and structures.
