I think it would be a VVEERRYYY handy idea for the browser to set up a
multi-object path, it would be very simple to set up;
The user would enter the first domain OP into the regular object path field
in world options, then put a space or something, then the next path. The
browser would attempt to download whatever file from the first path, if
un-successful, it would search on the second, third, until successful, if
not, it would display the default object error messages.

The same could be done with object passwords for each of the paths,
seperated by a space or simply in seperate boxes.

This would avoid PHP scripts, ect, to accomplish this.

Why bother the time to do that when PHP scripts do perfectly fine?

I have thought of the same thing before, but then I wondered how it would
work when 2 different objects with exactly the same name on 2 paths would
work. Which one would the browser use? The AW path and the Mega Path has 1
or more of those. Another thing too, for small servers, it would cause more
lag from using all the paths at once, or servers.

Since the object path is set by the world attributes on the world server,
and any scripts running on that references path, multiple objects paths in
the AW Browser would be irrelevant.
Only that individual would have that multi-path and not the path the world
owner has established.

Well, the first path specified in that field would be the path which would
be the "first choice" so it would look there first, then take the failed
downloads from that path and search on the second path, it wouldn't cause
for the user to que the download box again, it would just keep trying until
successful or file not found anywhere.
