It would really be much more convenient if we could see our heading while sailing.
You can, it’s on the chart in the direction of the arrow :)
Until my third or fourth game, I kept thinking that there should be a compass rose somewhere that I hadn’t toggled open - it may be the neath’s own quirk of having no fixed direction, but that wasn’t stated anywhere, so I assumed London was south (as in Southern Archipelago) and sailed directly out from Wolfstack dock trying to find NORTH. A sentence explaining the zee bats brought directions based on your ship’s current heading (nd that the map was already placed in a north/south configuration) would have saved me from looking for Whither near the Khanate. (although nothing could have saved me from crashing into every single port because I didn’t know how to slow down/reverse/dock–> cause of my tragic first death)[li][/li][li]

A compass rose sounds like an opportunity for art fun! I just assumed up was north, but that’s kind of like assuming that the axes of a graph are labeled in units of one instead of actually checking/labeling them, I suppose.
