Does anyone know the maximum world size in in VC?

I need to know the maximum size of the world in ViceCity. Basically I need to know how much can the player go in both positive and negative X, Y, Z directions. Like a box for example that simply tells how X goes from -2131.23 to 2314.5, Y goes from -1213.2 to 321.13 and Z goes from -3154.34 to 2526.65. I'll do some digging on my own but if anyone has a knowledge of these limits than please share them with me.


What is the maximum positive and negative x, y, z values that a an entity can reach in the game (player, object, vehicle etc.).


From server.conf:
<WorldBoundaries x1="5000.0" x2="-5000.0" y1="5000.0" y2="-5000.0"/>
And here is the syntax:


Oh, so this is modifiable. Ok, I'll look into it.


Maybe a developer could give a more explained reasoning behind this.

Using my settings script, I set the boundaries to 5000.0 on every side (basically the values like what seby posted). However, when I went to the far top left corner of the map (Downtown), I realized that I'm only able to go to approximately y = 1950.00 (I was in a Hunter when I test this so the size of the Hunter itself could have changed the actual world limit. Can't recall what the x-axis was). I also tested with 50000.0 but I still got the same results. Any value lower than 1950.0 (Again, I only tested the maximum y-axis) works normally however.

I don't know if this is related to boundaries being set by script or if this is a VC related boundaries issue.


x < 2000.0, x > -2100.0, y < 1900.0, y > -1900.0 are the max world bounds for sync on the 0.3r2 Squirrel server.

If you found yourself running into an invisible wall, that's some trickery maxorator invented. Vice City doesn't consider anything beyond that wall valid; to prevent players from crashing other people's games by being in an invalid coordinate, VC:MP deflects vehicles and projectiles approaching the invalid area.


What are the coordinates for this invalid area?

Lower bound is (-2350.0, -1950.0, -200.0)
Upper bound is (1550.0, 1950.0, 20000.0)
