Lol i had the Morrowind map set up like that...but this Oblivion map sucks in my opinion. All it does is list the general layout of mountains and terrain...major cities...and rivers. No settlements or other areas of interest. Its pretty sorry in my opinion :(. Oh well it contrasts the greatness of the game perfectly now lol.

Yeah, I definitely did that with the Morrowind map, too, but as you guys have said, this one just isn't worth it. :-\

Use your in game map, it shows exactly where you are and what way you are heading. It also puts an icon at the location of your current quest destination. Also on your compass, while walking around, you will have the same colored icon showing if you are moving toward your quest destination or not.

I would at lest skim through the instruction manual a bit for some good basic info, but what you want to do is hit your tab key to bring up your inventory screen, then click on your compass, that will bring up the map/quest screen. Then click the buttons under the map to switch between local map/regional map/current quest/active quest/completed quests. You current quest will show an icon on your map to let you know where to go....

Sorry...the whole Cyrodiil map thing made me LOL :)

Back to the Map thing...

Also if your trying to do a Quest, make 1 your "Active" Quest and then hit the MAP button. MANY Quests will then point you in the direction of whatever's needed for the Quest.

Just follow your "pointer" ;)
