DirectionHUD (v1.16 for 1.6.4)
Want to know what magnetic direction you are facing without installing fancy maps or trying to figure it out from the Debug GUI? DirectionHUD is for you!

DirectionHUD displays your magnetic compass heading at the top of your screen. Requires ModLoader (via Risugami's ModLoader or FML).

- just a simple compass display
- configurable alignment on your screen
- x and y offset options
- multiple styles to choose from
- add your own style to the default png or make a custom png file
- version update checking (never miss an update)

- option to allow custom compass images Done!
- custom height and width
- options for different sizing of the HUD
- additional versions for people that like HD texturepacks

Setting up custom compass styles:
By default 4 compass styles are provided (up to 10 will fit in the image file):
Posted Image
The indices start at 0 (the top compass is index 0). In the default image file the second and fourth styles are clear with white lettering (hard to see above). If you want to edit the PNG file (/gui/compass.png) to add your own styles, just copy one of the existing styles, paste it below the others, and edit it as you see fit. Each stye is 24 pixels tall (2 rows X 12 pixels) and 192 pixels wide. Currently the size of the compass HUD is locked to 65x12 (meaning that you will only see 65x12 on your in-game screen), but I plan to add configurable sizing in the future.

ATTENTION: bspkrsCore is a REQUIRED dependency mod in order for any of my mods to work. It contains the core shared classes used by all mods I release. If you don't install it along side any of the other mods here, Minecraft will crash. You have been warned.
ModLoader/Forge download: All Releases

This mod contains core classes used in all other mods I release. If you want to turn off update checking for my mods, you will need to set allowUpdateCheck=false in mod_bspkrsCore.cfg.

I will not be offering support on this page. If you are experiencing an issue related to this mod, the best way to get support is via the minecraftforum.net thread. Please post questions/issues there.

Did you read the description above? It clearly states that ModLoader or Forge is required.
