The Mechanical Ruler is an equipable information accessory that when equipped, will draw a semi-transparent grid overlay while the player is not moving. Once the player starts moving, the grid will fade as the player's speed increases. The Row and Column of the player's cursor location are also highlighted in red on the grid.


  • If the slot that the Mechanical Ruler is equipped in is set to invisible, the grid will not appear.
  • The function that was displayed by the "Laser Ruler" in the 1.3 teasers is assigned to the Ruler, which can be paired with this for more accurate measurement.
  • The Mechanical Ruler can be used in conjunction with the Ruler, this allows the use of the Mechanical Ruler's grid on top of the Ruler's measurement line.
