    How big is Calypso?

    I've heard it was around 3000 square kilometres back in 2015. Has it become even bigger since then?

    Each server square is 8192*8192m ~= 67.1 square kilometers.

    Eudoria has 12 server squares, archipelago (incl. Atlantis archipelago) - 5, Amethera (including Treasure Island) - 14.

    That'd give us roughly 2080 square kilometers.

    Calypso Gateway (aka Thule), Crystal Palace, FOMA and Monria are one server square each, not included in the above figure.

    Not sure where that 3000 comes from, it could be referring to the whole universe.

    Server squares are easy to count in LBML maps.
    There are many ways to skin a cat but just one way to boil a frog.

    Calypso appears to be made up of 31 servers, each 8k x 8k in size. That would make it a little under 2100 square kilometers. The size has remained unchanged since 2015.

    Calypso coordinates go from 16384,24607 to 90112,98303.
    That gives us 73.7 * 73.7 km or 5433 square km.

    Except that the land area is not square and most of that is inaccessible ocean.

    I go with Svarog point of view 73.7 * 73.7 km or 5433 square km
    You can go through water everywhere i think! I walked and hover (on water) all over the map, East to West and North to South on Caly and also made the same on Arkadia, Rocktropia and Next Island.
    On all planets there are no "fake" places on map . You have access everywhere. Some are deadly ofc.
    ..maybe you refer at Eudoria - Amethera borders but I count that as bug xD.

    Many places on Earth weren't accessible for humans 100 years ago, that doesn't mean the planet size was smaller

    I never said the planet was smaller, but in playable area it has less than 2100 kmē. Tell you what, when you can send me a screenshot from 16384, 98303 and 90112, 24607 then I may believe your numbers.

    Of course, the earth has a diameter of 12,742km and an area of 510.1 million kmē. Calypso has a diameter of 8836 km which would mean it actually has an area in excess of 245 million kmē.
