    This app shows what altitude you are at (in meters). For most official maps it shows how much higher you are than the lowest point on that map. It may or may not work on non-official maps depending on how the map creator designed it. If they made a conscious effort to make sure that the low point on the map was at a z value of 0, this app should work the same way. Otherwise you can use it as a relative altimeter.

    Many thanks to @Neo who helped with hooking up the altitude stream to the display

    Extract the ZIP to BeamNG installation folder/ui/modules/apps, so that the SimpleDigAltimeter folder is in that directory.

    Currently you have to manually install it to the path described in the OP.

    Could you pm one of the mod support staff and ask them for help?

    Packaging is really easy. You place your files in this subfolder structure: "Documents/BeamNG.drive/mods/unpacked/{Your Mod Name here}/ui/modules/apps/{Your App Name here}" for example my Ui Test Mod:

    After you made everything correct you can pack your mod in game and upload it to the repo::
