from a player comment Padashar at Gamepressure:
The Locationator is a compas that tells you two things:
1) The distance to the treasure indicated by the brightness. a) Faint, very far away b) Dim, far away c) Dull, your close d) Bright, your very close. e) Blinding, your on top of it.
2) The color is the direction to the treasure a) Red b) Orange c) Yellow d) Green, if you see green your facing the right direction.
When you are about to dig for the treasure the compas should tell you: The Multidirectional Aerospanning Locationater's light glows with a blinding greenish heu.
