Each PCO parcel in the Geo Web is assigned a namespace in the global MUD world. The current owner of the parcel is the only one who can take ownership of the corresponding namespace for that parcel. They are then free to do what they wish so long as they keep paying the network fee. This includes keeping write permissions to themselves, opening up writing to anyone or any combination in between.
Global Hooks and Systems
A hook on
/world/NamespaceOwner enforces that at any given time the namespace owner can only be changed to the current owner of the corresponding parcel. A custom system can then allow the namespace to be created upon claiming, or the ownership of the namespace transferred to the new parcel owner.
By default, the namespace owner can delegate permissions to others for any resource in the namespace. When the ownership changes hands, it is the responsibility of the new owner (or their user agent) to revoke access to anyone who may have been granted access to resources during the previous ownership cycle.
Current deployments can be found here.
- Should there be a root owner of the world?
- If not, how do upgrades occur?
- Various client teams could attest to what world is the "correct" one via EAS. Upgrading would simply be attesting a new, immutable world.
- New world somehow falls back to the old?
