    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....:(
