Maps or satellites with GPS

Recommended Posts

Would be cool to see a gps system or satellites to help you find your way back to base as getting lost a lot Beacons are hard to make from time to time.

This is a very common suggestion.  If you need more beacons on the surface, make a Soil Centrifuge and crank out Quartz.

Have you considered building landmarks with your excavation tool? They can not be seen as far off as beacons, but can be a useful tool none the less.

A launchable satellite could enable toggling space view on each world. Until then, build spires for your beacons to see them from farther and leave a trail that will lead you back.. home.

You can build a shuttle but you can't even have a paper map?

At least a (rotable?) sphere indicating your actual position and placed beacons, such as the one you find in the purple building after you power them up. Make it a searchable and printable object?
