    How to use
    1. Choose a point in Minecraft to be used as your starting point. This point will be used to calculate other points.
    2. Save the X/Z coordinates of your starting point using the "pointsave" command. Be sure to name it something memorable!
      • Ex. /pointsave 0 0 Hub
    3. Open Google Earth Pro and head over to the location you wish to outline.
    4. Click on the ruler tool in the top menu bar.
    5. In the dialog box, set the measurement unit to meters.
    6. Find the real life location of your starting point, and click to use that as the first point on the ruler.
    7. Leaving the first dot, move the mouse to a spot of where you want to get the point of (ex. corner of building) and click.
      • After the second point is set, you can click and drag to change the location of the second point.
      • For better accuracy, try to use the edge of a structure as the point when measuring
    8. Look at the measurement box and take down the values of the "Map Length" and "Heading". Copy these values into Minecraft to use with the "point" command.
      • Ex. /point Hub 18.25 100.88
    9. Run the command. The plugin will then compute the X/Z coordinates of the location in your Minecraft world that coorespond to the real life location of your measure point in Google Earth. You will be automatically teleported to the new coordinates and a glass block will be placed.
      • Once you have multiple points, you can connect them with WorldEdit's //line tool.
    10. That's it. You've just plotted your first point with PointLocator!
