Best tile size for world composition

Hey guys,

I am wondering what the best size (settings) is for each tile (submap) for open mmo world?

I’m wondering this as well. I’m playing around with creating a large world (96km x 96km with 1 ‘continent’ and a number of islands). I’m using world machine to create my landscape with tiles of 2km x 2km. But I’m wondering if that’s optimal or should I drop the size of each tile down further?

Depends on the overall world size, the end user’s target hardware. Lots of stuff to consider.

I’ve found that using very small tiles causes the World Composition tool to crash if im making a massive world, say 100km x 100km. But then if each tile is 4033x4033, that’s a lot to load in.

It all depends on your project.
