So, 1 Mile = 5280 Feet. So, I made a Normal Cube and I believe it's 1F all sides but setting it to 5280 is way too large for a map 4096 x 4096.
Makes me think it is inches on the cube and not feet? Or am I calculating it all wrong. I suck at math, I only excel at creating stuff lol.

It's all metric. So when you create a cube at its normal scale of 1x1x1 it is 1 meter squared.

So a 4096x4096 map is 4.096 km by 4.096 km.

As you can see in this example, I've scaled a cube up to 1.86 on the X axis to determine my balloon basket is 1.86 meters or 6.10 feet wide.

Sorry, apparently refreshing a page causes a response to duplicate and I see no way to delete the duplicates.

@Hello I'm (PicSoul) lol it's ok. And thanks for the reply. Helped me figure it out.
Yeah, it would be nice to delete extra posts. Reminds me of the days when Vbulletin first came out.
