- Adds angle and distance measurements when building roads, train lines, pipes and power lines.
- Hold CTRL to enable snapping to angles (in 5 degree increments).

- (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)

Maybe you'll like my Spotify playlist, Music to Code By[]?

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![]

csonny1: Measure It! can show elevation, relief and distance in either unit, metre, yard or foot. It also include slope in either degree or percentage.

It works fine with Precision Engineering if you still want both.

One of the most (if not even THE most) necessary (must-have) mods for C:S. Still working after Campus DLC.
