Two months ago, Crowfall announced Eternal Kingdoms, a major feature in the upcoming MMO. Now, the development team has released a video via YouTube that provides an overview on their plans for how Eternal Kingdoms will operate within the game.
Eternal Kingdoms are worlds set in servers that are run by players. The player running the server is a monarch, and these monarchs are in complete control of the world. They can edit pretty much everything, from the placement of mountains, rivers, trees, and the rest of the terrain, to what kind of objects they want to have on the terrain. A player can be a monarch of one kingdom while serving as a vassal in others. Players can set their lands to either be a private server or a public server. The public server gives anyone access to it while a private server can only be accessed by the monarch himself and the players on the vassal list.
The new video released is pretty much an overview of the new feature, and it introduces us to the UI and the basic controls of it as well as some rules and concepts that are coming along it. The Eternal Kingdoms are made up of parcels, or huge amounts of terrain that are instantly stuck to one another with the help of Crowfall’s engine. If you want the terrain to look a certain way or be in a certain position, you can change it by just dragging and dropping the parcels and pressing submit. It’s incredibly adjustable and any monarch can do this with ease.
After you’re done with placing the parcels, you can go on to make castles, villages, and cities, though every parcel has a fixed number of tokens. Those tokens stand for how many objects you can put on the parcels. Players can group together to create their own unique cities and empires. Check out the video below.
