There is multiple ways to do such things, you could have conditional maps, in which case based for example of a quest variable the map will change. This is not shared across players as the map change could affect the game play (imagine having a special key to open a cave, you want that only those players with the key to enter the cave, therefore the change is per player).

However I see what you want, basically let the player somehow change the world, and this change should be shared. Well that's not currently in, but can certainly be developed.

Sweet thanks! I see what you are saying about doors and keys but yeah I am thinking more of the base map or even something like you use to have in NEAB where players could create their own islands but I would do houses and stores and such instead. I was also thinking of instancing, for example an apartment where players all enter in same door but its a personally apartment for the player once entered.

Well,you can just render that same variable for the all players. Then everyone can see your ghost too. Wala! Semi real time! Lol

Other players already see you. And yes you could send the variable to others and handle the world in this way, but that's not really how you should solve the issue. For me either players should be allowed to modify the map (not very smart) or create another map which contains players' modifications.

Added 2 actions, 2 checks and a link from the profile to logout. Missing the change password UI.
