When I use a compass it does not seem to point towards my bed. I have heard that now compasses point towards North. Is this true?

  • If you're compass doesn't point to your spawn, you may have a corrupted level.dat file resulting in the spawn point being set differently. – John the Green Aug 21 '11 at 20:38

    I thought the spawn was my bed (which it is) but it seems that the original spawn point is where compasses spawn. – Joe the Person Aug 21 '11 at 21:44
  • "Where compasses spawn"??? – John the Green Aug 21 '11 at 21:51
  • hehe sorry. I meant where you originally spawn. I don't know what I was thinking! – Joe the Person Aug 21 '11 at 22:27
  • haha I figured you did. :) Btw, have you slept in your bed? They don't become your spawn point until you have. – John the Green Aug 21 '11 at 22:39

Compasses still point to the spawn point. Even with the /sethome plugins or if you've slept in a bed, it will remain pointing to the default spawn point.

"Sleeping in a bed will change your respawn point, but will not change the original spawn point and location the compass points toward." – Minecraft Wiki page

  • Lame :( it would be more useful if it pointed to my bed. – Colonel Panic Oct 27 '13 at 21:45
