Is a free in-game tool that can measure the distances between 2 points or a selected area. It will tell you the distance in both inclusive tiles and raw distance.

Usage

  • If you single left click with the tool it will detect this as a point. Points will be measured in sequentially clicked pairs.
  • If you left click and hold with the tool it will show the selection box and when you release the selected area will be measured. A selection of less than 1 tile width and height will be recognised as a click.
  • If you right click (configurable) with the tool held it will be disposed of.

Capabilities

  • You can obtain the tape measure item via the mod's in-game shortcut button in the bottom middle or via a configurable shortcut (default: Control M)

  • When you use the tape measure tool the mods GUI will open to show the results. Closing the GUI will clear the results.
  • You can discard the tape measure item from your inventory by also right-clicking on it.
