World Rights

 
This dialog allows you to assign special rights to citizens in your world:

All rights lists can either be empty, indicating that no one has that right, the character "*" (a star), indicating that everyone has that right (including tourists!), or else a comma-separated list of citizen numbers. No other entries are valid in a rights list. An example of a valid rights list is:

78889,120045,149789,180566

Enter

These are the citizens who are allowed to enter your world. Note that if your Enter list is a "*", then everyone, including tourists, can enter your world, and your world will be displayed with a green light next to it in the world list. Any other setting for the Enter list will cause your world to have a red light next to it.

Build

These are the citizens who are allowed to build in your world. Take great care before setting this field to "*" in a public world (i.e. a world that also has "*" for the enter list) since that means anyone and everyone can enter your world and start building, which they definitely will do! Before opening your world to public building, you will probably want to have a registry in place so that property encroachment restrictions can be enforced.

Eminent Domain

Citizens with this right have the power to change or delete the property of other citizens in your world. For obvious reasons, you should take great care when giving someone this right, since it gives them a lot of power. For example, they could delete every object in your world if they wanted to.

Special Objects

The citizens on this list have the power to build with objects that begin with the letter "z". Normally, "z objects" are not available to the general building populace. This allows you to create special objects to customize a certain area in your world, without having that object duplicated all over the place by other users.

People with the Special Objects right can also build inside a world's Restricted Radius.

Special Commands

This is a new right in Outerworlds 3.1. Citizens on this list have the right to create object actions that contain certain special commands not available to other users. Currently the two special commands are move and rotate. Since these commands allow users to create objects that move from their original positions, it is recommended that this right be restricted in public building worlds that use registries to prevent encroachment.

Public Speakers

Designates which citizens have public speaker status in your world.

It is not advisable to ever set the Public Speakers field to "*", even in a closed world. This serves no real purpose and puts unnecessary load on the World Server.

Eject

Designates which citizens have the right to Eject other users from the world.

Bots

Designates which citizens have the right to run Bots within the world. If you aren't going to be running bots in your world, we recommend leaving this field empty since unexpected bots can sometimes be unpleasant or disruptive to your visitors.

Speak

Designates who is allowed to speak in the world. In most cases, of course, this field should be left as "*". However in certain cases, such as a moderated discussion, or a speech by a guest speaker, it may be desirable restrict the ability to speak to certain individuals so that visitors cannot disrupt the course of certain events by speaking out of turn.
