Hello everyone here in the World Machine Community Forums


I have many questions about World Machine but I am going to ask the most important one as it will reflect highly towards the point of whether or not World Machine is right for me.

So think about games like Guild Wars Nightfall and Fuel both games have massive worlds for players to engage themselves in. The GW:Nightfall map is around 40,000 sq km just to point out.

I have this whole idea swirling inside my head and I would like to put it into action so if I were looking to make a playable world similar to size as the one used in GW:Nightfall,


Could I do it with World Machine?

Hi there,

40,000 sq km is only about 200km per side of the square, which is totally within capabilities of WM.

I encourage you to try the Basic Edition -- the resolution limit will make your outputs extremely coarse, but all the tools work the same way. Creating a vast world is a serious and challenging artistic undertaking, but the technical side is not really any different from a small one.
