Navigation

From Rise: The Vieneo Province

Navigation is the process of planning, recording, and controlling the movement of a vehicle from one place to another. The word navigate is derived from the latin roots navis meaning "ship" and agere meaning "to move" or "to direct."

If you have gotten this far, we assume you have familiarized yourself with the Organizer and the concept of waypoints. The final piece of the puzzle are the various instruments in the Rise universe that can help you get where you are going.

The first visual navigation instrument for ground vehicles is the "DF" or "Direction Finder". It is a primitive depiction of the relative bearing and distance of the active waypoint. The orange arrow will track around 360° (up is straight ahead) and the display will show distance. The units are either kilometers when the K is visible, or in meters when the M is visible.
