New Feature in Development: Rooms and Movement

I think the best new feature to start on for RubyMUD will be the addition of rooms (a world map) and movement.  Creating a world of rooms to explore should be pretty fun.  Better yet, how about actually exploring those rooms as a player?

Here is the compass we’ve designed to allow players to move about:


We’ve also got a version that has “NE”, “SE”, “SW”, and “NW” written on the compass.  Here it is:


Which one do you think is better?  Personally, I like the one without “NE”, “SE”, etc.  Considering this will be on mobile devices, the text could be too small, and it makes it a bit more cluttered.
