a17 map size comparison to a16

Recommended Posts



Context, everyone complaining about a17 Rwg map sizenavezgane is quite small as it turns out, 4k


Red Circle is A16 RWG map size, 10k*3.14 = 314 square km

just realized this is not the diameter of a16 rwg, it generates 10k from the center, making this 20k*3.14 = 628 square km


which means 25k world needed in a17 to equal that.

i was able to generate a 24k world in nitroGEN, but ran of memory on launch, and i have 32gb ddr4. sooo, maybe someday, or maybe on a server with 128gb of ram it could load.


but the reason for the size difference is simple. it was a trade off of pregen now, and take more time to load, but better performance ingame, vs a16 method of quicker to load, but have to generate as you encounter a chunk, which always lead to massive lag
