It is still working on 1.11 (Industries)

However, you will notice that the sun will rise from the West and set into the East in default compass setup when playing with default themes (no custom themes selected) and many of custom themes. To mitigate this, you can set the offset dir. to 180 (180 degrees) and the sun will rise from the correct "East".

This mod came since the begining of Cities: Skylines. The game does not have day and night cycle yet at that time. The North the compass pointed to is "Map North".

However when the cycle has been impremented by the publisher since After Dark, they may overlooked this and misplaced the sun's pathway in the default themes' setup. (The theme setup has the latitudal and longitudal setting to let thememakers decided where the sun should rise, including its right ascention and inclination.) So we have to ajust the compass accordingly.

Works fine for me on 1.10 (Parklife) :)

Is the source for this mod available somewhere? I'd like to check what is causing the NullReferenceException in the log.

It works fine for me with 1.10, but I don't have the Parklife DLC (yet).

I dunno why but I can't get this to work anymore somehow. It used to work but I redid my mod list and now it just doesn't show up, even if I press C. Already tried unsubscribing and resubscribing, still nothing.

Works fine, couple features I'd really like though:

- Let me have the compass rose/spikes without any letters
- Auto hide the thing when I hide the UI, if I really want it in a no-ui shot I'll reenable it myself
- Maybe a bug, but you can't close the options menu except by making the compass appear and clicking the center, which is annoying if it's hidden but auto-show is off.

I have the mod enabled but it isn't showing up even if I press the hotkey "C". What am I doing wrong?
