No Compass? No problem

You do not need a compass to know the direction. It helps – but in the worst-case scenario, you should know the trick to figure out the direction you are going in – or else you may get lost in the way. If you are on the Java Edition, you can get to know the directions by simply hitting the F3 button and check the directions on the debug screen. If that is not the case, the crack on a block when you hit it will give you a reference. When hit a block to mine, you will observe a crack. Hit alteast two of any blocks. There should be three cracks in that – one straight up, second to the right, and the third to straight down. If you find the same pattern for multiple blocks there – the straight line points to the North direction. Accordingly, you can guess the other directions.
