Where is that?

Get the position of a thing by looking to it from two places.

Usage:
  • Do .wit A at one point looking to a thing.
  • Do .wit B at another point looking to the same thing.
  • Do .wit S to see the position of the thing.

I mean F5. I'm used to MC controls.

Silly mod. What you need instead is just point and click system with display of distance and coordinates.

It's absolutely silly, but I love it. All it does is find the intersection of your facing directions, and that works for literally everything. You can use it to find the position of a structure you see on the other side of a glass wall. You can use it to find the position of a mob off on an island in the distance (if you're fast enough to catch it standing still). You can even use it to get a rough estimate of how far away that player nametag you see on the horizon actually is, if you pick a glyph to focus on and move far enough when recording A and B.

There was an update. Now the mod should work with 5.0. Also it probably is more precise.

And I've made a demonstration video (bad quality):

Maybe some day I'll make it possible for two players to get the wit pos together (by sending the pos, the look dir and a comment about what to look to via modchannels).
