voyagerCompass HUD


Generates a lightweight and fully customizable compass ui on your screen resembling the one from battlegrounds and squad.
 Easily place your markers on the map and they will update on everyones compass.
Here is an example video. Preview the script || mod at YouTube or Gfycat[].

Customization options:

  1. Change the width, span and the positon of the compass in y-axis.​​​​
  2. Specify y-Offset if problems occure.
  3. Switch between compass-profiles and the point names. [N - 15 - 30 || N - 20 - 40] WIP
  4. Create your own characteristics in form of: Size, Alpha, Hex-Color, Font, Shadow or a inversion.​​​​
  5. Set the y-Offset for markers or toggle visibility.
  6. Save your customization. Stays saved over game-restarts.


It runs by default. Settings can be accessed through pause-screen button.


  1. Compass is visible in main-screen.
  2. Profiles limited to Battlegrounds. WIP
  3. Custom colors dont save.
  4. Markers may have huge impact on some missions!


I dont mind people using my code in their projects. But if you do so please correctly attribute us "Unknown_GTX & Flax" if you are going to share it.

You can get the standalone script here. Forums[]

@Dom you can reinitiate it by applying settings. The settings are in the upper left corner in the pause menu

This is such a promising mod but i am having a few issues with it disappearing. I've seen this happen when switching players in SP or entering vehicles. I don't really know how mods work, but can there by a button to reinitiate it, or can it only load at the start of a mission?

Hi! So I've been dreaming about a mod for this - love the battlegrounds compass and great to have it in Arma too. Thanks for making it real!

Unfortunately I've been getting the same troubles with freezing as others in the comments - any fixes or suggestions for getting it running smoothly? seems to work for a bit but then just freezes. :( cheers!

Can you make this Compass only be applied to Vehicles?

I have noticed the Customisation notes but I'd like to know if it can be done anyway as it's just not updated or if it might come at some point in the future.

Thanks in advance!

Just tested it yesterday in Apex protocol, when you load the mod it works fine in first mission but when you complete the mission and go to next one it freezes so you have to restart the game and reload the mod any one else has a issue like that ?

You've already got the correct tag (Mechanics), but the other two put it in workshop categories that it doesn't fit in. Don't mean to be rude at all btw. I just go through and report everything incorrectly tagged on the workshop front pages occasionally, and then warn the authors to get it changed before the moderators temporarily remove it for tag compliance.

@*R§F*TheCapulet what should i tag this instead?

Why is this tagged as a character or structure mod? It doesn't have either of those two elements in the mod at all.

@Doman probably some incompatibility with a mod. I will look into it.
