One of my newest praises for second life is the ability to build higher then 768 meters above ground. The limit has been extended to 4000 meters. I find this very useful in terms of privacy with skyboxes. Anyone can set there draw distance to see 512 meters away. Flying up 200 meters allows you to see everything in the sim – including those “not so private” skyboxes. With the ability to have skyboxes at a higher level, I wouldn’t be surprised to see security systems preventing anyone comming within 500 meters of them while still retaining the peace on the land far, far below. Skyboxes now have additional privacy (which still can be circumvented, but now not as easy).
