@Merelambasted How exactly is it different? The server isn't the one loading the zones for us, that's client-side. Heck, for the server it's like all the zones are permanently loaded at all times.
Also, in case you haven't seen the places where the shield generators are placed, they're over rivers and canyons. There's no reason to prevent us from gliding over them, other than to disguise a loading screen on the bridge.
