Minecraft - How to locate yourself in the game

Ask a question


I play Minecraft but the only problem is that I do not have a sense of direction, so when I often get lost when exploring the maps. Are there any solution to navigate more easily?


You can craft a compass, a practical tool: the needle always points in the direction of your spawn point (where you appear when you die)

To the compass is like this (crafting table):

Iron | ___ Iron__ | iron
Iron | redstone   | iron
Iron | ___ Iron__ | iron

Otherwise you can also download a mapper, like the "minecraft topographical survey".
