    I could not get this on an imported world with a completed map, so if you are having trouble with that then here is how to do it easily from the beginning.

    Start a new world. The map you spawn with has a scale of 1:8, meaning that every 8 blocks in the world is 1 pixel on the map. It used to be the case that every new map you make would automatically be this scale. However, now when you make a map the default scale is 1:1, meaning that every pixel on the map is a block in the world. To change the scale you have to surround a used map with 8 pieces of paper.

    However, this achievement does not require 1:8 maps; it just requires any map. Thus, if you make nine 1:1 maps and disregard the one you spawned with, it is much easier to make because the 1:1 maps fill out almost instantly (not completely though).

    Update: I have heard that it may be glitchy if you use regular maps. Use locator maps just to be safe (just add a compass to an empty map).

    Place 9 fully explored maps onto 9 "Item Frames" in a 3x3 square.
    (I used 1:1 Maps)

    9 x Locator Maps (Compass + 8 Paper)
    9 x Item Frames (Leather + 8 Sticks)

    Make sure all corners are filled in!!!

    BradLeafsFan9chances are you are missing a corner or 2 in some of your maps, make sure they are filled in. You can see an example if you watch my video

    sCoRpTanKI didn't believed it at first but after looking again, I was missing some corners as well. Grab back the map with the missing corners and go re-explore the area. Make sure the corners are full and place them back in the frame and Voilà!

    For the record I was using Locator Maps and even with Locator maps, some corners can still be missed.

    If you already happen to have a world with maps, either imported from the original x1 version or by joining via crossplatform connection to MCPE or Windows 10 edition, you might have to re explore 9 maps, as otherwise it wont unlock.

    The new X1 version features smaller maps than the old maps, and you will need to get 9 of those. Don't panic yet as those are really easy to discover. Took me only a few minutes to do this solo. You will need to get 9 empty maps at least, which can be crafted from 9 paper per map, which in turn can be crafted from 3 sugar cane per 3 maps. Also trading with villagers can get you empty maps.

    To start, open an empty map and discover it. Then walk to the edge of the map until your arrow becomes a dot. Then walk a bit further and open up a 2nd map and explore that one as well, and so on.

    UltraAmbiguousHello All.

    Just got the cheevo - March 11th, 2020. First, I used the base level Empty Maps 0/4 and the Locator Maps 0/4, but could not get the achievement. And yes, all maps were fully explored as I tried this on three different worlds.

    After upgrading each map once to Locator Maps (compass + empty map) all upgraded to 1/4 level. Adding one piece of paper to each one also clears each map so you have to walk the area again and place them back on the frames.
    Cheevo popped after about 15 seconds.

    I would avoid desert areas as they are super difficult to see - particularly in the corners of each map.

    Good luck!

    JR RedneckI have been struggling with it too. But I noticed i have been rotating my maps to look better in the room I was putting them in. When I put them up and didn't rotate them and the achievement unlocked for me. Hope this helps.
