Early in the week I was working on implementing a networking model for smooth client performance even with high ping. I came to realize that my client’s networking code was a big mess and hard to work with. Instead of trying to fudge in new code and make it work, I set out to rewrite it all in a way that will make the client’s networking scheme easy to work with. I intend to implement separate networking models, one that benefits players with low ping, and one that benefits players with high ping, and this may take some time. I have nothing new to show this week, and I’m not sure how long this rewrite will take, but I should expect to have a more interesting devblog for next week.
