From James - Lead Dev:
Hop on over and voice your opinion: LinkOk so in the next couple months GM's Terrain will be switched over to using a Voxel Terrain System that is right up there with EQ:N's Voxel Terrain. So the Question is would you guys like to have complete freedom to terraform your parcels or would you rather have the top layer be pretty static with COMPLETE Freedom to put in a Mine shaft on your Parcel and then mine out anywhere and everywhere underground? So pretty much just how much freedom do you guys want with the new Voxel Terrain?
Something really cool we will be implementing is Spells and Attacks that smash the ground around the area of combat. The Environment will now be able to be much more dynamic and changing then before! And best of all we will be able to have a truly seamless World. Basements, Caves, ect. will all be non-instanced with no loading screens...
