- 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![]

@jobro_06 The vanilla game still is missing a lot of things, this mod allows you to see what height you are building your road and see the length in units.

@anyone - Is this mod still an essential mod or has its concepts been fully integrated with the vanilla game?

I seem to be encountering a problem with this mod that cause the game to throw a looping exception* every time I try to place a road or any other network. I will grab a log later on when I am not busy and post it, but are there any incompatibilities known to cause an issue like this?

* the last time I checked the log it had mentioned a buffer overflow
