I would like to suggest the addition of a compass. There are many reasons for this. Firstly it aids the sense of presence in the game. Secondly it acts as a vehicle for player interactions. Conversations between players can include directions. Thirdly its useful as a tool for helping players find each other, and particular places of interest. Fourthly it could he used in quests. "Find the cave north of the dying tree in such and such a village." I also think it could be useful for testers in relating to the dev team about where they encountered a bug. Eg: There is a floating tree about a mile north of x. Either that or some sort of grid coordinate system that can be displayed during alpha. The compass could initially be given to testers, but as the game progresses, it could become an item purchased from vendors, traded for between players, and even made by players. Cheers.
