The compass at the top center of the PC screen will help you find the correct direction and way to the location of the unlocked resource. You can also find the resource by using biomes. For example, you need to farm fish in the water biome, hunt animals in forests, and pick up vegetables in the plain.

However, the disadvantage is that you cannot switch the resource type you are tracking. For example, you use the same compass for iron and silver. Therefore, you don't know which resource the compass is showing you until you reach it.
