sorry i accidently pushed enter, I meant though that if there will be 50,000 users, could they all fit in the central lounge, Is home going to be the size of a state, or will some users get shown and others won't.
 
Its kinda confusing, sorry.

That's what SHE said!! HAH.
 
All joking aside if this post was in reference to the file size of Home, I believe it will be around 500mb if I remember correctly.

No there will be servers that hold a certain amount of users. There is more than one. Check out the link for the details Smiley WinkSmiley Very Happy

Home has different rooms in it, it isn't persistent.

Nope like I stated above there will be servers, that get switched and move around everytime you log on to Home, so you don't stay in one server and you meet many people and you would be able to invite people that in your friends list, even if they are in different servers so you can meet new people as well as keep in contact with friends, but simply put no you won't see 50,000 members at once

Heh. I'm sure this info is posted somewhere but in general I doubt the servers will be hosting 50k users at once. I would assume player "housing" will be handled very much like Final Fantasy XI where everyone had a "shared" entrance. In other words there will probably be one central location where everyone goes but has their house individually loaded for them so this will save space on the physical world map. My guess would be the actual space won't be that large seeing as walking will most likely be the main (if not only) mode of travel. Maybe 1 square mile??
