HOW DO YOU MEASURE LENGTH AND WIDTH OF PROPERTY NOT JUST SQUARE METERS

Question

  • 0

The basic unit of property is a square 4 meters by 4 meters - all lots are made up of various numbers of squares of land this size. You can either count these squares or rezz a cube and stretch it until it hits the property lines, taking note of its dimensions. There are also probably scripted items to make this automatic as well.

Go to somewhere near the middle of the plot. In the menu go to World/Show/Property Lines so that the outline of the plot is shown on the land.

Then right click on the land and select Edit Terrain. Click on the land near one edge and drag across. You will see the area selected. Drag slowly across and you will see the selected area jump.

The size of the jump is 4m so you just count the jumps. It is a good idea to start with your camera up high so that you can see the complete width (or length).

Also you have to make sure that you are starting on the parcel edge, start with your mouse pointer about a meter in and it should jump to the edge.

That is the only way I know if you don't own the land. If you do own the land you can just stretch a prim to the size.

I tend to do it using the edit land (4 metre square / multiply the number of sqaures by 4) method but there is another way to do this.

Stand on the corner of the plot, take a note of the co-ords in the viewer top bar and then walk to the next corner, take a note of the co-ords there and walk to the next corner, again take a note of the co-ords and so on.

You will end up with something like 0,16,20 & 16,16,21 for the first two, this means that the two corners are 16 metres apart (and the 2nd corner is one metre higher than the other).
