Teleportation between sectors in multiplayer
the last update, the I added
move between sectors, right now
it is only the most basic version,
but works in
multiplayer. All generated
sectors are exactly the same with only one asteroid in
their center and one wormhole leading to
another random sector, this was done to speed up the testing of this
system, since generation of a large number of asteroids takes a long
time, besides, in case of errors, the amount of information in the
log is reduced, simplifying
their search and debugging.
How it works in multiplayer in the video:
How old, single skybox looked like (for contrast):

For the case
where authorization does not belong to the server and does not change,
the teleportation works as shown in the picture below:
transmitting the change of position information can be lost or duplicated, and their order of delivery is not guaranteed.
In addition, authority
can be arbitrarily reassigned by the server at any time to
any peer (not on the picture), including the server itself,
in the last case
no messages that allow movement
are sent. This way it is a pretty complicated task.
If the authority is set incorrectly or the position is
overwritten before the teleport ends, it will lead to unwanted
collisions, incorrect coordinates, or both.
Even meshes were prone to deformation due to float
limitations as shown on the picture
info about this release:
since I tested new features all this time using my old saved games, I
did not notice a bug that caused the player data being written instead of sector data at creation of the new world, which
leads to the impossibility of loading game saves created in the
experimental builds. The bug will be fixed in the next version, until
then in order to test the experimental builds, you will need to download stable version and generate new worlds there.
Compatibility with those saves will be lost in the next version.
