Moon gates to travel between continent (40x40) maps

I don't think moon gates are meant to connect zones, only provide a way to travel between continents without ships. Parcels and lands forms will stitch together seamlessly between 40x40 zones to create continents.

well, it would be nice if we got some more clarity on it and curious on the tech side about that etc

This is what i thought to... But listening to the clip on the OP it sounds like that may be done away with.... they didn't really talk about it too much and they didn't really answer any follow up questions... so.. I would hope that it is a combination of the two..

One thing that moongates will add is choke points where all goods and armies must flow through.  Hold these down, and prevent the baddies from expanding or getting the good stuff on the other side.

so @soulein/ @Destrinpicture something more like this?

Closer @Tinnis. Assume no island extends into another "continent" brick. The islands are also floating. Also the moongates destination point has multiple outcomes so there isn't 1 chokepoint.

cool, would be interesting to get a full update on worlds etc. will moving between zones be seamless or require a loading screen?

seamless vs loading still remains the key question tho :) [for both movement from zone to zones and moon gate travel]

or if any movement zone to zone that does not use a moon gate

This seems pretty much exactly how Shadowbane's continents and runegates worked. Would that be accurate?

yeah would seem to make sense...in the 'go with what you know...' world view.

 

The rg system in sb worked well...providing some strategic value and making long distance travel less tedious...while still not making it 'easy' or instant.

@thomasblairwould moon gates be native to a map, faction controllable and/or require hippo resources to be repaired at start of world etc?

I wonder if moon gates will be "safe zones" as well.

sounds like it, aside from actually being able to swim/fly across the ocean

Sadly swimming won't come in until after post launch and they do a "sea expansion".  Which I am definitely hopeful for!

if a continent map is 40x40 cells (26.21 km2 ) they could make one or two big islands for each continent map and use moon gate to communicate between Islands

Doubtful,  since we don't have ships and there won't be an  swimming mechanic (initially) it would be a waste of space/area to have multiple islands on a single continent.
