What is the scale of the world?

  • Minecraft Middle Earth is a Minecraft community that recreates the world described by JRR Tolkien and his writings. Everyone can participate in organized events in which we collaborate to create major landmarks, terrain, caves, castles, towns, farms and more.

    To get started, visit The New Player Guide
  • This weekend 20-21 April the website will be unavailable for a few hours for a scheduled upgrade and maintenance. Estimated time that the site will be unavailable will be around 3 hours.

  • This community does not generate revenue and relies on its members and financial contributors to keep it running.

    For a complete month, we would need around 235 USD for a break-even situation.

Hello, sorry for the most likely well known answer, but from my phone I'm having a very hard time searching the website and finding the answer.

I checked out this server several years ago, and I loved it. It's there an easy way to find out what's generally changed since 2013?

Thank you!

The buildings are 1:1, the terrain in between is around 1:80 to 1:100 (@Credoo whats the actual scale you used when doing the map in WP?)

Thats just Ac propaganda. It is atleast 1:120 or 1:140.(*)
All jokes aside I have no idea. Its been a long time since I made that map with Homie. He was the one who set up the scale. We used an old merp map of middle earth and I scaled it so we could use it as an overlay to paint he terrain on in Worldpainter. I do not remember how much I scaled that map. And what scale it was originally? You can figure that out for your selves.

Oh I went looking on my external harddrive and found an early screenshot (6/9/2013(**))of the map. That might help you calculate the scale. Have fun!

* Yes I know that is smaller hence the "joke"
** Might be Europeaan time notation or American day/month/year, month/day/year. My bet is American since Homie usually dated the map progress.

I had a huge stack of paper, pencils, and my calculator ready to try and calculate the scale.....that's when I realized that I may not be getting the most out of my life....:(
