As the DM, it would be really nice if I could have options to change what is and is not available to the player view. There are times, when it would be nice to disable the use of the measurement tool as well as not let them see the dot grid.
I think it adds a measure of immersion when the player ask something like “I want to fireball X location, can I hit all three of those people without hitting my friends” or “Do I have enough movement to catch up to that person” and the answer can be, something like “its close, you’ll find out if you try it”. As it is, there is often a lot of just the player’s measuring stuff, and then changing what they will do based on that, which isn’t wrong in and of itself, but just lends itself to a different feel and pacing.
Some sort of settings, maybe in the DM account, not on the map itself, that select what is available for players connected to one of your maps. Or a per-map setting could also work just fine.
