Meaning should I head in the direction of the arrow or game north? Also theres no arrow indicating which direction akara is in, I assume it is south, but same question: South as in straight down, or game south which is different because of the orientation of the environment.
If you are too stupid to not be able to use a minimap like all Top Down RPG players of the era in which this game was actually made than you have alot more to worry about than contriving ass ideas that are half baked as best. If you think it is easy to code, then take D2 , open the source code for the engine and add code to it. Show how simple and innovative it would be, but for real. Not weak sauce Paint screencaps that look like they were made by a 3rd grader.
lol QQ. i think the beacon idea is better nn north south west east.
