This would be a cool idea imho, for people running small 'communities' in AW
could set up web apps for people to get space in their area.
For example:

Mr Bob runs this town called Bobville, he has it divided into 100X100 Meter
Sections, with each section covered by some groundcover to prevent

Mr Joe comes along and wants to build here, so he goes to the website, fills
out some app, picks where he wants to build, and if approved the perl/cgi
script automagiclly deletes Mr Bob's ground cover, and somehow covers it
with Mr Joe groundcover, using cit privilages maybe?.

I know someone has ported the SDK to PHP... that would probably allow you to do exactly what you're talking about. I don't know who did it or where it is, though.

couldn't you just use a PHP script and shell a bot?

PS. Brandon, the VB SDK doesn't work with VBScript

I agree here.. Yes, PHP *will* work. However it has to be run from a
Microsoft OS, because of the AW.dll and .lib files. They need to be
recompiled for linx/unix enviroment. However, the standard reply from AWCOM
is "We don't have the necessasry man power to take on a project like that"
:-/ Wait and see...
