About This File


This mod lets you equip the compass to your hand, and while it is in your hand it makes the fog of war on your map disappear so you can see everything, unequipping it hides the map again but everything you have explored is still visible.

I made this mod cause I thought the compass could be more useful and I find uncovering the map a bit tedious, you are basically spending an inventory slot for the ability to see the whole map on the go. It works in caves and ruins as well.


Map example

*NEW* Character holding compass:



Any tips or suggestions are welcome and appreciated but go easy on me, A n00b I am.

You can talk to me about the mod, tell me how much you like it, or just say hi below.

Also ratings do make me happy, especially the 5 star variety. ;)

Incompatible with:

---------- My other map revealing map mod mapportato

  • If you unequip the compass it turns the fog of war back on regardless of the completed teleportato, otherwise they do not conflict. Fixed as of BC 1.3 & MP 1.7

Boring Legal Stuff:

Feel free to use anything from my mods in anyway you like, acknowledgement is not necessary but it is appreciated.

As school and life take up more of my time I may have to give up on updating these mods, if I fail to update them to the current version of Don't Starve for several weeks, assume my mods are abandon and feel free to start your own version using any and all of my assets.

It sure has been a lot of fun!

What's New in Version 1.4   See changelog


  • Added swap icon, so now your character visually holds the compass in their hand, this should fix the item swapping weirdness.
  • Fixed loading bug, if you save while the compass is equipped, it will load equipped they way it is supposed to now.
