Probably yes. Added to To do list.

Definitely yes. Added to To Do list.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Update: v0.12. Changes:

- added Backtracking feature: assign a key, hold it to reverse movement from short time period. Useful for unlucky falls and getting out of encounters that are too surprising.
- added Breadcrumbs feature: shows from where you came. Goes well with Backtracking.
- added red pulsing highlight for exit sectors (optional).
- made speedometer size and position configuration options. I still don't know the use cases for the speedometer :(

Regarding other features that seemed good some time ago:
- compass showing enemy positions: already implemented in Ultimate DoomVisor HUD by saegiru, and maybe in other mods too.
- locations of keys, like in Guncaster: Guncaster does it by custom skills, therefore I cannot do it in the same way and universally.

Edit: about "locations of keys, like in Guncaster": in new GZDoom version there will be a new CVar, am_showkeys_always, and setting it to true will do exactly this.

Update v0.13. Changes:

- added new feature: SR40 aim (disabled by default).
- Auto use improvement: don't auto use a switch/door if the player spawns right in front of it. This caused auto skipping intros in certain levels. No more.
- Set automap use mark on auto used lines too (may be disabled).
- Addressed the issue with Automap: Hold Key. In some cases, it got stuck in automap, effectively reversing its behavior. The new control is added which must be assigned to the same key to mitigate this problem.

Hellscape Navigator is the most incomprehensible set of features that I met in Doom modding scene. I should probably add a guide.

Would it be possible for you to make a skin for the Compass that is more "Doom themed" that fits in with the vanilla Doom Status Bar? Would be nice to have a Compass that has the Doom Menu's BIGFONT or something along those lines.

That's a good idea. I created an issue on GitHub to not forget this suggestion. I cannot promise that it will be done soon, though.

Whenever I try to Hide the compass using the 'Decrease Display Size' Key/Bind the HUD is Hidden [Decreased] but not the Compass, Is that intentional ?

I'm not sure I understand this statement.

Display Size and other standard GZDoom HUD options have nothing to do with the Compass.
The Compass is affected only by Hellscape Navigator options.

Just wanted to swing by real quick and thank you for making this mod. It's an absolute Godsend for more complicated maps (i.e. Epic 2's map 28 normally takes me a couple of hours due to backtracking to find all the switches; this mod cut that time down to about 45 minutes) and is now a must-have/autoloaded mod for me regardless of the level(set) I'm playing with. <3
