I making space simulator. In game viewrange 10000.0, but in the world editor very bad place all objects. I don't see them. Can you make more then 20? I use 64 bit version of editor.

Why don't you want to scale all your game models/maps and make them 10 or 100 times smaller than now? It should be much easier.

How about camera? If I scale all objects, camera see it as small objects. Can you explain how to do this?

Size in the game is relative.

If all houses are 10cm (10 meters) high and you make the people 2cm (2 meters), the player won't even notice. Especially for space-simulators, this is the best option.

The problem with scaling down is that you have to deal with floating point precision issues more often. It may or may not work perfectly-the only way to see is trial and error.

Its a commonly used technique but you must scale everything (distances, velocities etc) by the same amount

2cm is of course a bit over-reacted, but it just shows that relativity is the issue here.

In a small demo I made, the character was about 1 meter high, and all other things relative to that.

Building games is now always about having the biggest world.
