Here’s a MMO-Champion thread in which Ramsesakama sets out to recreate the World of Warcraft realm of Kalimdor in the maker-friendly game/environment Minecraft, in faithful 1:1 scale. 

Using procedural tools and a lot of skull-sweat, the task is undertaken, with awfully fabulous results. I’m trying to create a replica of Kalimdor in Minecraft, and I want it to be the correct scale. I’d like to create the terrain first, so I need to compute the relative distances (in Minecraft blocks) between the different locations in Kalimdor. If a Minecraft character is approximately two blocks tall, and if we assume the male Orc model is equal in size, then how many blocks is “one yard” in WoW?
