For everyone that uses the metric system in the real world and wants to know the metric distances without changing the underlying game system. Or do you want to add your own custom measurement conversions? Or maybe travel times?
A 20 feet wide gorge lies ahead of your party. What do you do?
You are asking yourself:
20 feet ... is this wide? Should i try jumping across it?
The latest version is compatible with V11. If you find problems with future subversions of V11, then please let me know. Please note that Release 1.1.0 and above are not compatible with foundry versions below V9 :)(They might work with earlier versions than V9 but its not supported)
You can now add your own custom conversion with custom labels, etc. Just go to the settings and add all the information for your own conversion. The module has the concept of a small and a big measurement unit. For example feet and miles. Or meters and kilometers. That way you can support normal maps, as well as bigger travelmaps. Fill in the original labels, so that the module can find the measurements, that it should convert with your custom factor. That way you will receive your own custom measurement with a label of your choice.
Your players then can decide if they want to see the built-in metric conversion for feet and miles or your custom one, or just BOTH :). If you want to get rid of the original foundry measurements, then there is an option too. I hope this helps all the people that have some different szenarios than imperial to metric.
You can now add travel times to the ruler. Just go to the settings and add all the information for your own conversion. You will need to define the label that the module should look for (e.g. miles) and then the distances for that measuring unit that your group would travel on a slow, normal and fast travel speed. You can also define if you want to display the travel times in days, hours or whatever you want.
To save some space you can also toggle on the option to only show the total travel time on the last segment of a ruler, instead of both the total and the travel time to this segment from the previous one.
This module supports the DragRuler module from Stäbchenfisch. You can enable/disable the labels in the settings.
To install, follow these instructions:
Works with V9 + V10 + V11
Also thanks to ruipin for the libWrapper and Stäbchenfisch for the DragRuler module :)
