Alter Aeon FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
FAQ 15.3 - How can I find an area that needs to be built?
If you want to build an area, you can't just propose the first thing
that comes to mind or the first thing that sounds cool. New areas
need to meet several criteria:
1) Your area must be needed, and it must have a purpose. For example,
your area may fill out an empty place in the world map, or your area
may provide low level experience for players on an island without many
If you just want to build an area because it would be cool, that's
not good enough.
2) Your area needs a place to live. This means that you have to know
where it will go, or reasonable places where it can go, on the world
map. If you're blind and having trouble with that, another builder
or sighted player may be able to help.
Remember that your area may have to be different levels depending on
where it is placed - areas on the islands may be limited to below
level 30, while the same area placed on the mainland might need to
be level 35 to fit in a specific location.
3) Your area has to make sense in it's new home. You can't put an
ocean in the middle of the ash mountains, and you can't put a vast
desert on a newbie island.
