Anyone else ever notice that the Open Pit compass has 361 degress?
Just noticed the other day while laying out a mission, coming through due North.
358, 359, 360, 0, 01...Huh?
Every other compass on the planet has 360 degrees, as you turn through due North they swing from 359 to 0, there is no 360 on the Compass.
Oleg?
The Speed bar compass just goes through 360 like any other. Neither compass seems to see any magnetic deviation, good for us, as everywhere on the globe is different.
