Daniel looks at the sextant. ("The Lie")

Daniel Faraday carried a sextant with him to the Island in his backpack. Faraday showed other survivors the sextant while notifying them that in order to leave the Island by sea, he would need to calculate a new bearing, and to do so, he needed to determine where the Island was in time.

At nightfall, Daniel held the sextant again, forlornly, but was not shown to be making use of it.

Sextants are an essential item for solving co-ordinate clues whilst on treasure trails. After first talking to the Observatory Professor at the Observatory, a sextant can be obtained from Murphy in Port Khazard (look for the mini game symbol on map, he operates the trawler). To use a sextant to plot clues, a player must also have a chart and watch. Sextants may also be made with one steel bar in a player's house at the Workshop on the Crafting table 4 only after obtaining the first one from Murphy.

Operating the sextant is a fairly simple task.

The idea is to put the horizon and the sun in the middle of the screen.

First use the vertical 'arrow buttons' on the right to put the horizon in the centre of the viewer on the right hand side. Then use the horizontal arrow buttons to move the sun onto the horizon in the middle of the screen. Clicking 'get location' will give the co-ordinates of the player's position. This consists of two numbers; the first indicates how far the player is North or South of the Observatory, in degrees and minutes, and the second how far East or West. Note that one degree is 60 minutes, and each game square is approximately 1.875 minutes.

Sextants will often need to be used hastily in wilderness locations as being attacked by monsters can happen, interrupting plotting.
