Compass not visible on map screen
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Anyone who has used a map and compass to navigate before knows you need to have both to hand to get anywhere.

In previous ArmA games the compass was available in the map screen so you could take bearings properly. This has for some reason been disabled, making it very difficult to judge your bearing correctly.

Please bring this feature back.

Also if the red ring/circle on the map has been brought in to replace proper navigation techniques, then please have an option to disable it.

You can use this until the issue gets fixed:

It's like my dream since arma 1 to have a map like that :')

This issue was processed by our team and will be looked into. We thank you for your feedback.

Also to correctly navigate using a compass you need to be able to rotate it upon the map.

This is fixed.

@Astaroth I've checked - it's resolved. Ticket can be closed.
