Now that it is possible to control the avatars the user may use
through the SDK, in order to allow for even more possibilities
it would be useful if the users abilities to fly and shift could
be associated with specific avatars.

It would actually be even more useful if swimming and running
were included in the concept, but that would also assume the
browser implements restrictions on those activities to begin

If the entries in the avatars.dat file had additional information
that identified specific actions a given avatar could not perform,
then the possibilities for more fun and interactive worlds would

Imagine a world where the you need to do certain things in order
to get a bot to change your avatar from the turtle bot to the rabbit
bot. Now you can go faster, and hopefully this will help you move
up to the next level which would be say a 'bear' avatar which can
walk run or swim.

After completing additional goals, you could acquire an eagle
avatar (which we'll assume is a magical aquatic eagle that
can walk, run, swim or fly), and eventually a free spirit avatar
that is insubstantial and finally allows you to SHIFT through

If this additional mechanism is implemented so that the avatars.dat
must have the lines added defining actions to dissallow, it would
not break anyones existing avatars.dat

IMO such a concept will be added with V 4.0

This has less to do with the sdk itself and more to do with the avatars.dat,
but agreed some sort of change needs to be made. Maybe a grant system that
can grant and revoke the fly/shift rights. like
aw_avatar_grant(AW_AVATAR_FLY,AW_AVATAR_SESSION); would be more to my
liking, the aw_avatar_set should be seperate of granting rights to that
person. Anyways some change here needs to be made.

What is the eagle got shot out of the sky?

Some bots will eject ppl for flying and stuff you can sence avatar's
action's and state's you then just force ppl to do certain things so if
someone fly's they get sent there last location maybe unless there allowed
to fly until some proper aw inbuilt feature is added
