Better compass. Idea for it to make exploration easier.


Recommended Posts

Be honest, none of us 99% time wants to know where north is and 99.9% of us don't craft compass for anything else than the cartography desk.  

Know wheeler's navigadget? For example, you put a red gem in it and it shows the closest red gem item.

For my idea, it would be like this but you put an item into it and it shows you in which direction you'll find a biome mostly related to the item.

It should be very early accessible items, if you need cactus to find a desert then what's the point of getting cactus to find a desert if you need to find a desert first to get a cactus. 

Suggestions of Items and the Most related Biomes to them:

  • Deciduous forest: Birchnuts
  • Meteor shower areas: Rocks/Flint
  • Bee queen biome: Petals
  • Savanna that can have beefalos: Grass
  • Altar Forest: Moonrock
  • Dragonfly Desert: Ash/Charcoal
  • Oasis desert: ... any trinkets, fishing rod maybe? Not many simple things relate to this dessert I guess.
  • Marsh(swamp): Fish/Rot/Reeds(Chance to find them mini swamp patch or in tumbleweeds, what if wurt started with some?)
  • Salt formations: Monster meat(IF ON BOAT)
  • Spider infested forest: Monster meat(IF ON LAND), glands, silk.

Caves

  • Wilds: Lightbulb
  • Rocky Plains: Rocks
  • Mushtree forest: Color-matched mushroom cap.

 

Lunar Island: IMO shouldn't be possible to be located this way but finding glass in the lunar grotto could be easier than sailing and sometimes still not too easy.

Pig king is easy to find thanks to cobblestone road so it wouldn't be a problem to tell where he is even if a second deciduous biome spawned.

Players who don't like it still have a choice to just not use it.

About title: Maybe not easier, it's not hard, more like less luck based when you're looking with intentions to find certain one earllier.
