# Measurement Thoughts

I was looking at barriers when I realized that if you make them really tiny, they can be used as a form of measurement for gimkit creative. It turns out that one super downsized barrier block without the border around it is one/ fourth of a normal block like Cinema Carpet. Once I thought about this, I was like, what if I make a ruler for actually measuring the length of something in game.
Heres a Picture of this:

I dont know if I did it right though. Can you please tell me if I messed something up. This is just some thoughts you know so please dont laugh. P.S. Was I supposed to put this in the help category?
With help from the community I have now createdd the measurement system, This is heavily inspired off of @mysz 's concept.Heres the conclusion:

Forms of Measurment:
The Biggest that can be achieved using barriers is 100 tiles. Called A Baseplate(Bad name. Will change later)

The next Biggest is 40 tiles long and is called (??? for the time being)

The next biggest is called a and is 20 tiles long.It is called(??? for the time being)

The next biggest is 4 tiles long and is called a MegaGimeter

Tile. A normal block is equal to a tile. It may be called a Gimeter

The next smallest is used with barriers. It is half the size of a tile. Called a Half-Tile

The smallest that can be achieved using barriers is 1/4 of a tile. Called a Quarter-tile.

The units of measurements could keep going on but they would be used with props so we dont actually know the correct measurements for everything after 1/4 of a tile.
These names are placeholders and can be changed.
Based off @mysz 's names for the tiles

This could be a really good measuring concept!

I literally was just thinking of an idea for a game and this came into my mind! Crazy right?

You could also use this idea in a Control Room

True true. Also was this post supposed to be in Help or Community Guides?

I also dont know how to make inches yet but ill study up on it

It should probably stay in Help, because you are asking for thoughts on your concept.

Okay, Thanks for telling me!

Letâ€™s call one tile a gimmeter, and 1/4th of a gimmeter, a quarter-gimmeter.

No, actually 4 tiles should be called a gimmeter.

I mean actually gimkit does count distance in tiles

Waypoints, tag zoneâ€¦
Grid snapâ€¦

1 tile can be called a â€śtileâ€ť, 1/2 of a tile is a semi-tile, then quarter-tile, then eigth-tile, then yeahâ€¦

Nice names for the measurements

How would you do eighth tiles?

Yep, the smallest measurement you can shrink a barrier to is a quarter-tile

These replies are really helpful like semi tiles and quarter tiles

A hypothetical tile.

One gimmeter can be a tile. A gimmeter can also be referred to as a tile, if you want.

So now area in gimkit and geometryâ€¦

I feel like calling gimmeters tiles is redundant.
Maybe a 4 tile length.
