My New Idea Environment Mechanic - Depth Counter/Measure
#1
Depth Counter / Measure


Info
A simple measuring tool that allows the player to measure how many blocks are selected or what depth something is at. See pictures below.

Appearance

Pic.1. A drag and count on each block example (the order of the numbering should be reversed).
Pic.2. A drag and count in a cursor bubble example.

Stats
Highlight: Aids in measurement and dungeon planning
Function: Improves building and planning for Dungeoneers and perfectionists seeking either beauty, symmetry, efficiency or a combination thereof. Helps a lot with building stairs because it makes it quick to do a depth check. The player could turn it on or off with a game option or could choose to use shift or control or another button combination while selecting with mine or dig tools.
