Apparently there are many ways to hide borders. You two were great. I think this will help me and also help other people. Very grateful indeed!
Now I see things differently, thanks to you.

Larger cell size gives you much better performance since you have much less polygons in visible range, so you are actually improving performance in your case. You may not see a problem for now, but you significantly lack detail on the terrain as a new polygon only starts at 2.5 meters. If you use o...

Ugh not to derail, but how do you even get the size of the map/terrain in game units? A while back i looked for it, but i couldnt find it and till now i forgot about this issue. I work with Qgis, making maps and so on. When I need to make a DEM, I need to turn it into UTM (to have control in meters...

I am working with 4096x4096 and 2.5 p/m on a land of 10240mX10240m. For now I see no problem ... Sometimes it is good to risk. As most players have relatively good computers, try to balance the graphics (if the terrain is heavy, eliminate some polygons of some objects to balance).

For example, you can create a terrain larger than 500km² and need to divide it into several grids (example from the map of Life is Feudal). You need an equation for everything to be correct.

What is that for? Sounds very complicated. I always used that equasion: Texture size 2048x2048 = 2x2 km = 4 sqm Much simpler. Yes, yes, it's much simpler. You can use a 1: 1 cell, so if you create a slightly larger terran you have to change the size of the cell and that's where my equation comes in.

I made a simple equation that makes it easy to calculate the size of a terrain in meters or km sqKM = km²(exe:20.480km*20.480km=419.44Km² HM = height map (exe:2048px) Cell = meters/px sqKm/(HM*2)/HM=Cell (HM*Cell)*(HM*Cell)=sqKm Calc ex: (2048px*2)*(2048px*2)=16.777216km² 16.777216Km²/(2048*2)/2048p...
