Ever lose your car? Ever wonder where the closest chest is? Well, look no further than this mod. Compass is a simple mod that allows for locating the closest entity specified to the player. It can be used in two ways:

  • Holding an item that can be placed, press the mod's hotkey, N by default. It will tell you where the closest example of that entity is in the world.
  • Use one of the mod's commands (/loc, /locate, /compass) and provide the internal name of the entity.

Don't know the internal name of something? Simply hover over it with your mouse while not holding something and press the hotkey. It will state the internal name of the entity, so you can locate it with one of the mod's commands elsewhere.

When it finds the closest entity, it will print the distance and rough direction to the chat, as well as drop an indicator on your map. Never lose anything again! Find vehicles, setups, and ore deposits.
