Someone above came back to 1 meter = 3ft, but that's my problem. haha 5 blocks = aprox 15 ft, but that makes my house TINY. haha And as far as meters being the way of that future, that's been said since the 80s...
A player character is 2 blocks tall. If a block is one cubic meter, then a player is 6 feet tall.
It makes sense to me.
, but what about when you got a room 15 ft long and it turns out as only like 5 blocks in game? That's what confuses me cause I got some 3 ft sections that turns out to be 1 block and that only works for doors...Any other sections and it looks like a midget lives there.
That's a problem with Minecraft, not the metric system. You have to make things one or two blocks bigger than in reality because everything looks smaller in Minecraft (the player is quite tall and you can't really crouch or sit down)
I see...I figured that was with the game. The metric....I'll stick to non unless I'm referring to bud. haha
Depending on how big you want to make it, and what the smallest object is that you want to look decent, go off of that. If I made it so my actual house bed = 2blocks that's not a lot but doesn't allow for detail, if I wanted to be able to make the words on my books eligible then the scale would be massive...If you catch my drift. Basically it depends how much detail you want. Obviously you'd have to find a nice medium.

Creepers are people who hide outside your window and touch themselves. Are we changing that name?
Yeah, feet are illogical. How many feet are in a mile? SOME STUPID NUMBER THAT I DON'T REMEMBER.
Meters are the way of the future. The only country that doesn't use them is basically the US.
So, 1 block is probably 1 meter wide. I think 1 meter is about 3.3 feet.
A foot is approximately 30 cm. There are 100 cm in a meter. Therefore, 1 meter is approximately 3.33333333333333 feet going off to infinity with those 3's.
Oh and as for the metric system. The countries that don't exclusively, officially use the metric system are Burma and Liberia. The Imperial units are often also used in the UK in certain circumstances and regions.
