The rules request for rapid deploy an unoccupied Area.
For limited terrain like buildings or fenced areas it is clearly defined but what is about open fields and areas. How to define it in this case. A distance to the next model?
The definition in the rules are very fuzzy.

Open terrain in this case means any area that is large enough for your model's base to fit on and that doesn't affect movement or provide cover in and of itself. If there's a 30mm wide gap between two areas of forest, you can drop a small-based model right there, the only reason why maybe you shouldn't is because you'll be in trouble of you fail the RD roll.

Sorry you miss understood my question.
The question is about unoccupied open terrain.
The rules state clearly that rapid deploy is not allowed in occupied terrain. As long as the area has clear borders it is easy to handle but the rules don't define how to handle open terrain. If open terrain is partly occupied. How or where to define the border between occupied and unoccupied areas.
I want to know how it is solved on different tables and the experience so far.
Best would be a clear rule like a distance or something similar in the FAQ but at the moment the rules are fuzzy when it comes to unoccupied open terrain.

As for deploying in open terrain, you can do it even next to enemy models (even base to base). Just look at Scorpion's rules - it has a special rule that comes into effect when it appears within 1,5' of the enemy models.

In my opinion the Scorpion is a special case and not a good example because it says it can land on top of models without penalties.
But if this is true the area of occupation is only the base or the footprint.
The FAQ says open terrain is occupied in the case of of a model in or on it. And says something about the difficulties to land safety and to watch the enemy at the same time.
For me it sounds like a larger area than the base which is occupied by a model.
