So lets put it up a knotch

Everyone probably knowes what a Sandbox MMO is. For does who dont its a MMO world created by the players. So people can manipulate things in game. Look at EVE Online then you might understand.

Now im asking myself could Multiverse become someday so powerful that it would allow players to manipulate things in -game.
And how exactly is a Sandbox MMO Architecture look like? I mean i seen regular games and mmo architectures but im asking for something much harder here.

Does anyone have a idea?

Yes I would love to see this. However there are a lot of challenges most mmos restrict the "sandbox" features to a controlled portion of the ame not the entire world. There's much more to discuss about this. One serious Non technical challenge is vandalism having a truly free and open sandbox world will draw jerks who want to ruin everything.
Good topic

Agree with both of you.

Shane's on point though in that there must be restrictions.

Even in most "standard" MMOs, lotro, ffxi, eq2 you can customize housing. Wurm of
course you can do lot's more.

The major non-technical challenge is absolutely... griefers... and that is a game design
challenge.

Even a game design decision as simple as character collision can have a major impact.
If you decide to have char collision then a group or individual can block doorways, deny
access to areas etc.

A lot to consider.



Cheers
