Ima just get straight into the guides coz yes.

Height Emulation
This tutorial is made unnecessary by the Coordinate System.
Ah, the height tracker from DLD and Dig It Up.

The best we can do is place a waypoint on the ground, and as you go up, it will display how far you are from the ground.

Height Emulation Flaw(s)
Just some basic math here:
The waypoint will show the distance from you, not the height.

So the length of the hypotenuse.

So let’s say you’re actually 3 meters up, but 4 meters to the left/right of the waypoint. (I used 3 and 4 for easy calculation)

Using Pythagoream’s Thereom (which states for a right triangle with leg lengths a and b and hypotenuse length c, then a^2+b^2=c^2), we can figure out the hypotenuse.

a^2+b^2=c^2
3^2+4^2=c^2 Plug in values
9+16=c^2 Solve
25=c^2 Solve
sqrt(25)=c Take square root of both sides
c=5 Solve and flip sides

So, the waypoint displays 5 meters, not 3 meters (the correct one)

2nd Flaw

If you make a game like Dig It Up, where you can go below sea level, your waypoint will display a positive number if you go under it.

Here it is in Desmos:

my bad @DXCTYPE add the dropdowns to this

thank for the wiki greatly appreciated

You can determine height with coordinate device, cant you?

yeah but this was made before the device and this is also cool

Why was the 1st edit only 36 minutes ago…?
and why did @OrangeBike do a useless edit?

It is possible. How many times do I have to say it? Gimkit is Turing complete. If gimkit exists, it can exist inside itself.

People have been working on it too…
I think someone can make it for sure! Just lots of properties probably.
block code will definitely be rough.

My bad I meant for me to make im not that good at building
