About Nature's Compass

Minecraft Forum - Source Code - Issue Tracker

Nature's Compass is a utility item that allows you to search for a biome's location anywhere in the world and view information about it.



  • Right-clicking with Nature's Compass in hand will open the biome selection GUI, from which you can search for a biome or view information about it.
  • Shift-right-clicking will reset the compass's state.
  • When the compass is not pointing at a biome, it will point at the world spawn.
  • The compass supports all registered biomes, both vanilla and modded.
  • Sample space and maximum search distance can be adjusted in the config file.




Information about a found biome is displayed on the HUD

Saplings and logs use the ore dictionary.




  • Install Forge
  • Navigate to your .minecraft folder
  • Download the mod and place the jar file in .minecraft/mods
  • If you've used a different version of this mod before, delete any existing naturescompass.cfg files from .minecraft/config
  • Play!



Yes, you can use this mod in your modpack. I'd prefer if you provide a link to the mod's CurseForge page, but that's up to you.
