[FAQ-1102] What is a Rangecast World?

A "World" in Rangecast is a package defining a set of channels about which the Rangecast player receives notifications of new transmissions (note: whether these transmissions are reported to the user depends on player settings), and a set of "Views" arranging all or some of these Channels in different ways.

[FAQ-1104] How to select/enter/load a Rangecast World

Each Rangecast World has a unique name, and a Rangecast user may request any World by name on the Options screen. Worlds that the Rangecast user has previously accessed will be listed in a drop-down menu, for ease in switching between Worlds while the player is in use. To access a World for the first time, choose the option to request a world by name; this opens a text box (where the name should be entered) below the drop-down menu.

[FAQ-1105] Creating a Rangecast World (or saving changes to an existing World)

Rangecast Worlds can be created by any Rangecast user, and saved to a folder within their user account. The process is that a user loads an existing Rangecast world, makes changes in the player, and saves to their own user account. Once a World is created, any Rangecast user can access it (by name), but only the author can overwrite the existing World with changes. (Other users can save to a new World name.)

[FAQ-1096] Add a view to a HTML5 world

Views provide a fast way for users to select a predefined set of channels in the Rangecast player, to narrow the (possibly large) list of all available channels to a smaller group that is relevant to a particular community or bureau. Views can be added to worlds through the Editor interface in the Rangecast player.
