- (NEW) Hold ALT to enable snapping to guidelines.
- Display height of the road you are placing relative to ground level
- Display height difference between start and end point of a road (when placing, holding SHIFT)

This mod uses the detours library[] created by cope. A big thanks to him for sharing that code, many mods on the workshop would not be possible without it.

Having Issues?
- Make sure you have the mod enabled in the Content Manager.
- Bugs/Crashes? Try disabling all other mods and running with just Precision Engineering enabled. If you are sure it is not caused by another mod, please post your logs in this thread and I'll try and take a look.
- I don't own any of the DLC so can't test with them installed. Users report that the mod works fine, however.

Do you like the mod? Buy me a coffee as thanks![]

Playing with it since its release, don't even imagine to do without, as said this is a must have mod. Hat down Sir !

Only here to report that this mod works nicely on Industries patch! (or at least it does for me). Also works fine with many other "road mods" installed.

Thank you for this mod, it's really necessary and I would consider it a must have!

@Apostle of Emloy-

By default the game disables achievements when you have any mods installed but thankfully there's a mod that re-enables them
