I have seen several videos about Terraforming and I am wondering
how this works technically: Most MMOs you a client based world. Basically loading everything from the client and only the dynamic objects from the world. UO Players who worked with SPHERE will probably know the client world as "static" which had to be downloaded. The only game which streams the world "live" is Horizon as far as I know. The Data Transfer is much higher of course (and not playable on 64k anymore)
how this works regarding to right management: Can you only be done on your own territory or everywhere? What stops players from turning the whole world into an ocean? Or is managed socially? For example that you just kill everyone that wants to do terraforming on "your" land?
