Does anyone know how the dimensions in AW relate to those in Real Life?

(ex. 1 unit in AW = 10 inches in real life)

Thanks,

The dimensions are pretty much kept true to life... using the metric
system. Each unit of measurement is equal to one decameter (ten meters).

If you open an rwx file... say a pp01.rwx, in your text editor, you will
see that the dimensions are .4 high and .4 wide.

..4 of a decameter is 4 meters.

Now go take a walk with your human type avatar next to pp01 and you will see
your avatar stands a little less than half the height of it. In fact most
of the Alpha avatars can fit under anything lifted 2 meters above ground,
and the average hieght of adults is within the 1.5 to 1.75 meter range (5 to
6 feet).

As a final note, a meter can be reached with 2 presses of any movement key
when building (arrows or the plus or minus keys). An example of this is the
walk001h.rwx which is 20 x 20 clicks wide and deep, which equals 10 x 10
meters, which equals 1 x 1 decameter, which equals the width and depth of
one "cell" in Active Worlds.
