Greetings, 

New features are ready and now the alien is able to defend himself. In this devlog I want to show the first telekinetic skills of the alien. 2 types of the skills are ready and now the alien can lift up and throw humans. After that you can search a person and take his stuff for using for the alien's purposes. The human behaivors have been expanded and now there are more interesting interactions with the alien. Inventory, scanning territory features have also been improved. New trailer is ready, show beats tell.

The video with all features showcase is here:

      Hello guys! I'm programming with a friend a basic 2d videogame with C++ and SFML.
      We're using a very basic main-thread in the server that updates every entity etc., and one thread per client that handles the communication with tcpsockets.
      However, when I tried to program a multiplayer game in the past, I encountered a common problem with multithreading: my client thread tried to read a main thread variable (like a coordinate) while it was modifying it/deleting it, resulting in a SIGSEGV. In the past, I've resolved this using a list of game snapshots and atomic variables, every time the main thread updated the game it was pushed in a game_snapshot list, creating a list of "game states", the client had just to take the head of the list, convert and send it, while the main thread deleted all the object behind the 100th node (only if one client-thread was not using it).
      Is that method correct? We're not currently right now thinking to change the "communication method" (like changing the main thread and one thread per client for something more efficient like async multiplexing), since this is a very basic project done to learn game dev in c++, but the "snapshot method" seems pretty inefficient to me. 100 instances of the same game seems pretty heavy to me.
      P.s. No, mutex is not a solution. If a client lags and blocks the access to the game, the game freezes for every one. Same if the client has, for example, 1000+ clients, with every thread trying to mute the variables of the main thread. We're obviously never getting to have more han 4 clients, but this project has been created to learn the basics.
      Thanks you so much! Sorry for any spelling mistake, I'm not really good in English :-(

      I've been taking a few classes in game design and think I want to make a career out of it, but I don't know the requirements on creating a game that I can legally sell can someone tell me?

      Metis enemies – "Strank" is a pretty fast creature but with a thin exoskeleton. It can be easily defeated even with the most basic of weapons.
