Update the Size of Your World

Easily change the dimensions of your world.

Run out of space and want to keep building your world out? Perhaps you want a smaller world to accommodate a more intimate gathering. It's simple to adjust the size of a world that you own.

πŸ“ Set World Height/Width

Follow these simple steps to update the size of your world:

  • Click the World Settings icon on the toolbar to open the World Settings drawer

  • Click Layout & Location

  • On the Layout & Location page, Change the World Width and/or World Height. The height and width is measured in pixels. You can choose any dimensions between 500px and 20,000px

  • Collapse the page by clicking the β˜β† icon in the top right corner or close the page and drawer by clicking on the βœ• in the drawer

Note: Only world owners have the ability to adjust the size of the world.


πŸ“ Spawn Point: Where do guests enter the world?

Guests will enter your world in generally the same location. We call this point in the world the "spawn point".

By default the spawn point in your world will be at the center of the map.

🎯 Can I update or modify the spawn point in my world?

Easily change the spawn point of a world you own by doing the following:

  • Click the World Settings icon on the toolbar to open the World Settings drawer

  • Click Layout & Location

  • On the Layout & Location page, under Spawn Point, click Set Spawn Here

  • Collapse the page by clicking the β˜β† icon in the top right corner or close the page and drawer by clicking on the βœ• in the drawer

Your spawn point will be updated to where your Topi avatar is standing.

⭕️ What is the spawn radius?

To avoid guests entering the world on top of each other, we set a spawn radius. As guests enter the world, they will randomly spawn somewhere within the radius of your spawn point. By default, the radius will dynamically change based on the size of your world.

πŸ›Ÿ Change the size of the spawn radius

The World Owner and admins with access to the Layout & Location page are able to set the spawn radius size in pixels, defining the circular area where guests will randomly spawn into a world.

If you would like to update the spawn radius of your world:

  • Click the World Settings icon on the toolbar to open the World Settings drawer

  • Click Layout & Location

  • On the Layout & Location page, under Spawn Radius, use the number slider to define the radius of the spawn point (the default radius is 100px, but can be set from 0px to 500px)

  • Collapse the page by clicking the β˜β† icon in the top right corner or close the page and drawer by clicking on the βœ• in the drawer


Create & Use the World Map

πŸ—ΊοΈ Viewing the World Map

The world map is a snapshot image of the world. To access the map of the world:

  • Click on the This World icon on the toolbar

  • Choose World Map to get a birds eye view of the entire world. If the button is disabled (not clickable) that means the world owner has not yet generated a map of the world

Note: The map is not interactive and will not automatically reflect future updates.

πŸ”„ Update the World Map in Your World

As the world owner or a specific admin role, you can update the world map to include recent changes you make to the world. Follow these steps to generate a new version of the map:

  • Click the World Settings icon on the toolbar to open the World Settings drawer

  • Click Layout & Location

  • On the Layout & Location page, under Create World Map, click the Create Map button. After a few seconds, your world map will be updated to the current snapshot

  • Collapse the page by clicking the β˜β† icon in the top right corner or close the page and drawer by clicking on the βœ• in the drawer

Tips & Tricks

  • The map does not update automatically. The World Owner must click the button in the Layout and Location page to generate a new map.

  • If the map icon is disabled - no map has been created yet for the world.

  • If you're hosting a conference or festival, you can temporarily add text assets to your world like "MUSIC AREA" or "BLUE STAGE" over an area of your world. Then create the map (so the directions live in the map) and then delete the text assets in your world.
