Minecraft has a lot of blocks, but what if they had more? Why do we need them? Please don't just add lists of things!

    Why a new block? Why don't we simply right click a bed or maybe a banner with the compass to set its target?

    Because the waypoint should be some kind of redstone based device. It would make since for a redstone powered compass to be drawn to a redstone way point more than a bed or banner which are just wood, and wool.

    It would also make making waypoints less easier to get. We want to travel, and explore, but we also want some sort of challenge. So putting the player through some measure of work, and crafting to get this waypoint block just makes good gameplay sense. 

    It would also add something new for people to try to decorate around if they felt like it. If not they can set it under their home, link up the compass, and pave over it with a floor.

    I hope the compass can be named by a name tag too or in the anvil.  So there can be multiple compasses for different locations and not get them mixed up!

    I don't know about a new block either.  Have to carry around too many blocks as it is!  Just right click would be better like SpecialisToL said.

    If you think it should be a redstone device that does make sense though.  What if you have to put redstone down and then right click on it perhaps?

    Placing the block and right clicking was what I suggested.

    Remember I referred to it as a block, and it being used in decorations or to be placed out of sight.

    This would also help so much if I need to find my way back, but also want to create a path or railroad system leading back! I'd know the most efficient path to take to lead me home; It'd be especially useful if I found a specific spot I want to come back to away from home. Great idea, you have my vote!

    I agree with Morgorim the dark oonn how it makes sense for a Redstone compass to be liked to a Redstone powered block.

    The compass should be more useful for mapmakers. My idea is for the player to enter coordinates and the compass to point the site. The clock should predict the weather.

    I would just like the compass to point back to your last spawn point – either the world spawn or your last bed.

    Cool idea.
