That would be excellent. Of specific note is the use of “optional” in your comment, as people like choice rather than being pushed down or route or another. Various options though would be great to allow bigger worlds and spaces to be put together.
At the moment HiFi is like a collection of parallel universes. They all exist at the same time, but not in the same space. People can teleport from place to place, but not travel there.
What would be nice is if you could choose to have your region geographically associated to one of more other regions. This geographical association could then either be:
- locations on a flat plane. The space in between the regions could be procedurally generated based on certain parameters such as ocean, desert, mountains, mixes. This would still lead to edges but give a larger space to work with.
- a world (eg. sphere). This would work similar to above but without the immersion breaking edges. Essentially the flat plane would wrap so walking far enough in any direct bringing you back into the opposite side of the plane.
- purely relative 3d coorindates. This could work for doing regions as planets or floating flying islands. And like above there could be some settings for how the space between the regions is handled, eg. star field, clouds etc.
This could then be taken a step further by allowing collections to be associated to each other, by similar collection types. So you could have a number of planar collections collated together onto a world, or a number of worlds associated by 3d coordinates to create a planetary system.
These options would allow creation of many different complexities of world and people could get together to create larger connected spaces, or an individual/company could run multiple connected servers to service their needs.
Anyway, that was way too much typing for me. I better get back to work
