Changeable terrain!

So I watched the Mark - a - Thon series today, and found a real Gem in the updates.

Mark said that Andrew is currently working on a system where the terrain of the game will change base on which realm owns it.

In my oppinion, that is very amazing. A very dynamic world, It will be awesome to be able to caapture a building, and for example if you're a TDD, watch trees and nature grow around it.

This is something that to my knowledge has never been done in an MMORPG, it will bring a whole new level of immersion, and realm pride in my oppinion.

 

If I knew nothign else about the game, other than this information, and that it will be RvR focused, and Mark was making it, that would be enough information for me to fund the game alone. Just sayin lol.

Such a cool idea!

    its about time honestly.

    i hope its not like just fully scripted that after like 20 seconds it just fully changes but rather it gradually changes depending on how long a realm has had influence there.

    LOVE the idea... I just have to wonder about how much resources this would take to develop.

     

    Would we prefer this or another class if it came to it?

     

    I think terrain would bring in more players and forever change MMO's but a new class would be fun to fight and might bring in more people too... hmmm

    Great idea. 

    Maybe the Vikings can bring some winter with them as they conquer the world.

    Awesome. Towns could really develop uniquely from server to server. Gives me more ideas for the soul/crafting system, too.
