In the past, there have been questions about losing you ship on a planet. Well, the 18 minute IGN video seems to clear this up. At 1:54 Sean does a scan and “points of interest” become visible. Most of these POIs are colored diamonds. Wait until about 2:08 and you will see a POI that is a circle with an icon. This icon represents your space ship. At about 2:12 or so, when Sean’s ship is in view, you can see that the icon’s position aligns with the ship’s position.
lol gonna need a compass to track which direction your going in, maybe a NWSE indicator on the POI hud would be useful, use it the same way to find your way back just like a real compass. Could tie it to the planets magnetic field. Used to know how to use one, may have to brush up in it
Yup no compass has been confirmed so far. Maybe as an upgrade to the multitool? But I doubt it. So I think Prowler901 is corect in that you'll have to navigate by the lay of the land. That is if you stray too far from your ship and can't see it as a POI when scanning
