A Compass or Map feature?

Question

Howdy folks -

I've been playing TLD for about a week now and I enjoy it a great deal.  I've died a lot and then tried not to make the same mistake again.

I know we are dropped off in the middle of the Canadian wilderness in winter....but it sure would be nice if there was a general compass setting, say in the upper right of the hud so we would know which way we were walking.  Does the game have this, and I have just not been using it?

If not, if would be equally nice if there was a map feature showing the places where you have already visited.

Are either of these features being planned?

Thanks -

A non map based navigation system will appear in story mode. I'm personally thrilled to see what it will be :) It could be birds flying or wolves howling in the east.

 

You need time to find your way into the game, don't worry. You will not need a compass or a map pretty soon. The beauty is finding the way on your own.

Welcome to the forums @Ultimateauthority ^_^

At the moment there are no plans for a compass/map to be included in the sandbox. For the time being the best way to navigate is to use the familiar landmarks in the game (e.g. roads, rivers, railways, mountains). If you'd like some really nice maps I'd recommend @whiteberry-toarda's. They're very detailed.
