Hello guys,
I don't know if space is the best choice here.
Let me tell you these 2 examples.

1. Soccer:
You are in the mid-field and want to give the ball to your team-mates who are strikers (there are 2 strikers).
The one is being covered by opponents but the other one is completely free.
So you will give the ball to the free striker, because he has more space.

2. A level in a game:
You create two versions of a level.
In version 1 there are strict limits/borders, so that players cannot really leave the level.
In version 2 you remove these limits/borders, and players have more possibilities.
For example they can reach mountains, trees etc. - things that are outside the actual level.
This means level 2 gives players more space.

I know that "possibilities" can be okay too, but I'm looking for another word, and I think "space" could be the right one.
There are also other words like "freedom", but I'm not sure if they are okay here...

Cheers!

Let me tell [give] you these 2 examples.

1. Soccer:
You are in the midfield and want to give the ball to your teammates who are strikers (there are 2 strikers).
The one [One of them = Der Eine] is being covered by opponents but the other [STRIKE]one[/STRIKE] is completely free [open = frei].
So you will give the ball to the free [open] striker, because he has more space [I would write: "he has more room/space to operate."].

2. A level in a game:
You create two versions of a level.
In version 1 there are strict limits/borders, so that players cannot really leave the level.
In version 2 you remove these limits/borders, and players have more possibilities.
For example, they can reach mountains, trees, etc. - things that are outside the actual level.
This means level 2 gives players more space [I would use "room," but I think "space" is ok.].

I know that "possibilities" can be okay too, but I'm looking for another word, and I think "space" could be the right one.
There are also other words like "freedom", but I'm not sure if they are okay here...

That's only my own thought.
