So I was getting a little nitpicky about not knowing the true distance in this game, since none of the charts or maps have any distance measurement keys. So I went ahead and did a rough calculation.

(Warning: this was for fun and is not the most accurate, but I did the best I could with what primitive tech I had at my disposal)

I sailed out to Castaway Isle (the flattest island I could find that was pointing directly Longitude, North to South without having any mountains, rocks, water, or any other major obstacles in the way).

Using the compass step counter. I made a list and checked it twice, and I found that Castaway Isle equals roughly 118-120 foot steps, give or take.

1 NM equals 6076.11 feet. And 6076.11 divided by 120 equals 50.63. So 50.63 Castaway Isles equals 1 NM.

About 5 Castaway Isles fit in one single square (North to South). So one square being 600 foot steps, makes 10 squares 6,000 footsteps, which is only 76 feet off from being on the dot of 6076 feet. A good rough roundabout way to call distance.

Now obviously this was all for fun and isn’t the most accurate means of determining distance in the game, but it was the closest I could get without being tedious. If I did something wrong, please by all means correct me. And hope this helps some of you salty dogs and scalawags. Credit and efforts go out to my loyal crew mate Jesus Panda, and myself Gunnarr Játmundur or aka Cap’n Jetty. Bountiful sailing mates!
