[ARROWS] Custom automap arrows

I am not very fond of GZDoom/ZDoom original automap arrow. It is hard to see where is the front and where is the back. So I drew some different arrows:
  1. minimalistic triangle
  2. pentagram with one longer corner for occult/hell themed mods
  3. rocket for tech/space themed mods
  4. pacman for arcade themed mods
  5. corner - even better visible direction
All of them allow to see direction more clearly when zoomed out than original automap arrow:

You are free to include them in your mods in original or modified form, or load them separately.
Spoiler: This mod is a part of m8f's toolbox:

I'm sorta surprised no-one ever commented on this. It's pretty useful, especially with the generic triangle, because I have the same issue as you with that arrow, even if it was like that in the original game, the larger resolution of modern PC's makes it hard to see these days. So thanks m8. XD

Pretty good alternative arrows, specially I love the Pacman and Corner ones! By the way, this last one reminds me the Asteroids arcade game spaceship, hehe... :D

You know something? I think I'm gonna include the Corner Arrow by default in next updates of two of my most important mods...
