Skyrim in the game world, excluding other dimensions, is estimated to be 5+km x 3+km. There is a good chance that the map size will be expanded after release, but even if it isn't, I can still make the map in parts on separate worlds. Ideal would obviously be to fit it into one map, whether that be possible through an update or through modding. I think it should be possible to make bigger maps before I get to the point of it being a problem. On launch, I will be focusing on creating the demo for people to play. The demo will include Helgen, Whiterun, and Riverwood most likely. If I finish the demo before this change happens, then I will focus my attention of creating component packs for the project, including scripts, behavior trees, and structures.

Won't be for a while though, if its early I would be happy. I know from personal experience that building Skyrim is a limited task because of map size. Whiterun doesn't actually fit inside its walls in game so you have to expand slightly. And then there's the river/waterfall that sits next to the throat of the world, I had to change the location of that river so many times, I haven't built a river since. you can only do a fraction of the throat of the world before you realise there's 9304965836 meters more steps to put in that steer off where you didn't far enough. Breath cY.. breath

The measurements I gave are about as accurate as you can get to converting it to measurements. Each block, I presume, is 1 meter. that means the entire map of skyrim fits in about a 5.5 thousand x 3.5 thousand block area. The goal is to match this scale as perfect as possible.

Really? To be honest I would have thought bigger but I haven't built the whole thing so i can 't say much

The post I got this information from approximated the height of their person. Using the height of the person they found that the doorways are a certain height. Then used the doorways to find the length of a building. Then used that building as a standard for finding the size of each cell in the game. Then itís just simple multiplication. Itís all conjecture but the math holds up so it can be reasonably used. Based on lore, Skyrim is obviously much bigger than that, of course.

No. Itís a team to accomplish a large scale project. Just like any other large scale project would have a build team. I COULD do this by myself, but it would be more fun and probably turn out better if I had people to work with.

Have you tried sculpting using stagnant particles? Create particles that donít move with a 1 second life, and renew them every second. You can color them precisely and you can have as little or as much detail as you want. You could find a way to tie them into a visibility check or set them to only activate within a certain distance.
