I finally got Max, L3DT, 3D World Studio, The Hammer, Photoshop, Wilbur and a few others installed and set up. (PHEW!) Now I'm ready to attempt importing some of the models I already have but I may need to scale them so I'm wondering what are the recommended dimensions of a typical doorway for a default character in the game world (among other things)? What are the dimensions of a default character anyway? Is there a list in the Wiki that I missed? I know that when you set up Max the units = .o1 meters but that is all I can find.

I see it all in my mind.

With the unit scale you point out, that's pretty much all you need, since our assets are placeholders, you make all of your assets relative to each other, and voila.

I think in the account management in the downloads tab, there is a sample human model, so you can adjust the size of your structures according to it.

Even at the .01 meter Max scale, I still find that I have to increase my models in game by a factor of 1.5 in order to appear to scale with the HJ sample characters.
