I'm already limiting the updates a player can receive about players and NPCs to only players within a certain distance.
My question is, should I also limit the amount of updates to a fixed number? Like if 500 players/NPCs are in range should I only send updates about 200?
If all my players are within update range without another limit it could be a 40MB a second upload. Although it's doubtful this will be a common occurrence.
NPCs will naturally be spread around, so that's not as much of an issue.
