Vehicle Compasses
Reviewed, WishlistPublic


Vehicles with radars do not have compasses. Also, one cannot check his compass inside a radar vehicle! Only in a hunter as a passenger for example, you can check your compass. On the other hand, piloting a Kajman for example, you cannot check you compass at all. You only have your bearings in the radar. (Which I do not know how to use quickly)

Steps To Reproduce

Get in as a gunner or pilot of an advanced vehicle (that has a top-down radar) and try checking your compass. No compass!

Additional Information

I was playing the Gunships showcase and at one point, and Griffin told me to go West (as there's an enemy Naval Base) but I had not clue where is west. (until, of course, the Objective marker came up.)

The radar IS compass ;)

I know! But like I said, I can't read bearings that quickly.

I find it very annoying that I can't use my compass for some vehicles. It's RIDICULOUS! For instance if I'm by myself in a boat, I don't have a radar and it doesn't let me pull out my compass. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW WHERE I'M GOING?

Please add the ability to use your compass as a driver.

Learn the bearings.

North = 0
East = 90
South = 180
West = 270

On the other hand, use the GPS of the vehicles (it's showing the view direction too).

This is an actual problem with for example an assault boat. You do not have a radar and you cannot bring your compass up. The only way to navigate in an assault boat is via GPS. Regarding other vehicles i don't think anything needs to be done.

Simply make the use of compass available in assault boats.
