Those who have tried to duplicate a world space may have come across that once attempting to Geck will just freeze.
there are most probaly other easier ways but this is just what i know and done feel free to do what you want.
Well there is another way than navigating to World spaces > selecting one and clicking duplicate.

NOTE:this is for smaller world spaces such as the sierra Madre Villa or the fort.

I will be using the Sierra Madre villa as an example in this case.

Step 1: First navigate to world>worldspaces

Step 2: right click in the Form box (the box with all the world spaces in :P ) Then select New.

Step 3:after doing that it should say "new form editor Id" for my case I am doing the Sierra Madre Villa i choose SM(sierra Madre)VillaNew.
you can choose whatever you like what is relevant to what you are doing but remember this is not what will show up as the world space name in game .
[

Step 4: After choosing the editor ID you should see a big box with lots of details of the world space.
Click in the Name box and select the name of your world space .Mine was " Sierra Madre Villa"

Step 5: This is the important bit ,it will duplicate all the landscape details of the World space,land height ,textures etc.
i)Open up the drop down list what says Parent world space
ii)Then select the appropriate world space mine was "NVDLC01Villa"
iii)Once you've selected it on the left hand side select any of the other world spaces this will open up that world spaces information.
iiii)select your world space once again,you should now notice all the little check boxes are no longer greyed out.

Step 6 :Select all the check boxes.this will make your world space use all the world-space your duplicating, landscape info .Posted Image

Step 7:Select OK then on the cell view window load up the duplicated world space.You should notice areas of land raised and with textures on them.if you cannot look around .
if your screen is just blank then place a object in the render window and the land should appear.

Step 8: you should now be wondering what about all the objects what should be there.
This is the really important bit and will take sometime.
Load up in the cell view the original world space.

Step 9: this is where if you've got a large world space it will take hours and you will most likely make lots of mistakes.
int the view you can see if there are more than one named cell in the left hand box select the first.this should bring up that specific area . zoom completely out then select everything in the window (this may take sometime.)
once you have go to the top bar and select edit>copy render
Posted Image
Step 10 : load up your world space and select edit >paste in place (MAKE SURE ITS PASTE IN PLACE)
This will copy all the selected items into their correct place.

Step 11:load up the original worldspace and then navigate to the uncopied section or one of the uncopied sections and repeat step 9 copy process.

^ the picture above is wrong it is not to where i copied last time(me being a idiot) but when you do it yourself make sure that you know whrre you copied to !!!!!!
Step 12: Once you have navigated and copied all the parts of the world you want or the whole world then you have duplicated the world. However you must note any doors will not be linked correctly and you need to remove any quest markers etc.this may seem long and grueling but it worked for me and once you understand its not that hard but it really only can be doen on small worldspace like the villa.
good luck .comment or pm if you need help as this tutorial is only brief

Can't you just use fnvedit, right click on the stuff you want, and do 'copy as new record'?

dont really know i tried using fnv edit and every time i tried to copy a worldspace it just never worked for me ,although i really do not have much clue about fnv edit.

the only option there is is copy as override into which didnt work when i done it well it did copy but i couldnt get to use it in geck as the form id is the same as the original one i changed that it still didnt work and returned to the original form id :-/

I'm sure there is a duplicate cell option when you right click a cell in the GECK as well that copies everything inside of it...

FNVEdit can do this pretty easily. If you wish to duplicate a worldspace into a different esp, you just need to copy the worldspace as an override into FNVEdit. One issue is that it also copies the FORM ID, which can cause some errors if you are copying into a large mod.

Another way would be to put the separate worldspace to be moved in its own file, and merge it with FNVPlugin. That seemed to fix my issue with FORM ID duplicates.

avianrave thank you :P lol thats the reason i created this because the form id was always the same so i couldnt get my worldspace to copy right :-D
