What's your opinion of multiplayer physics dino? And how to make sure desynced physics doesn't negatively affect players?

Erm, wrong kind of physics I'm afraid (a.k.a. not actually physics but network tech) :oops:
But, I know e.g FPS fix this by adapting trajectories so that things hit the things you thought they would hit, even if lag meant they actually wouldn't.

No, when the kickstarter ended Josh lowered the non-reached stretch goals so they'd be reached and added some new non-reached goals as a joke (including multiplayer, walking on ships and walking on planets) :P

Hmm...sounds interesting. It's like a lifeline to the real world. So people can remind you that you should stop your 48h session of playing LT. :P

Mostly so I don't have to alt tab to IRC and thus never have to stop playing :ghost:

And *I* should stop my 48 hour "Not Sleeping" marathon. :ghost:

I certainly hope that Silverware can find space for me to help- I have always wanted to learn about netcode. :angel:

No, it wouldn't actually.


Yes, actually. Because you dont have nearly as harsh restrictions on bandwith and latency on LAN as you have over the internet.
Removing a lot of the optimisation passes that tend to take the longest time

That...that totally sounds like a thing Josh would do, just for the lolz. :lol:

Without a doubt. That's why we have modding teams!
Would you like to join the team Talv? :ghost:

I think I'll have to pass on this one. :lol: I don't think I really have the time to dedicate to it. (Not to mention the fact that my joining up would make it "official".)

If a lone Valtieno joins up, I'll make sure to be nice to him. :ghost:

On a more official note, can you answer if death animations will be dealt with in LTC or LTL?
Trying to come up with lag compensation and delaying a player's death to allow them some parting shots would help with lag.
Would like to delay the death animation or explosion to show this "critical state"

Missed this.

I'm not sure what you mean by "death animations", to be honest. Destroyed spaceships typically just explode/cease functioning. :P

He was talking about "parting shots", which typically doesn't go well with "exploding".

I predict there will be a mod that lets enemy fighter pilots send taunts, as in Wing Commander.

Was thinking about having a ship start to glow and have mini explosions before it completely dies. That way if it's a close fight, lag won't be the winner.

Don't know where the death code will be, but I hope it's in the modifiable code.
