This feature is present in: Renewed, Legacy.

On-screen Compass[]

On-screen compass at the upper right corner.

As of Public Beta 21, an on-screen compass has been added to the mod. This is primarily to help players explore the large realm of Middle-earth without getting too lost (which is especially helpful in places such as Mirkwood). Prior to its addition, the only way to find which direction you were facing was to press 'F3', or to use the sun (as it rises in the east and sets in the west).

The compass is present in the upper right hand corner of the screen, as well as on the bottom left corner of the Middle-earth map.

In addition to telling directions, the biome that the player is in is shown above it, while the player's approximate coordinates (x, y, z) are given below it.

This feature, along with many other HUD options, can be turned off in the mod's configuration file.

Compass Item[]

The vanilla compass item.

Since Public Beta 25, the vanilla compass item (and the clock), can be crafted with copper instead of redstone, so it's no longer necessary to visit the overworld, if you need such an item.
