The Minimap mod by paboyafx on Nexus Mods may not seem like the most exciting mod out there, but don’t be fooled; this is easily one of the most helpful Grounded mods ever made. The only changes that this mod makes to the game are the addition of a minimap and a small compass in the top right-hand corner of the screen. It may not seem like much, but it’s saved countless virtual lives in Grounded, not to mention making it easier for revived players to find their lost loot!

Double Damage Mod
