Appreciate the transparency and all the hard work. Truely I have never seen a company or their employees work so hard for their customers.

Keep up the great work, we really appreciate not only what you do, but the time you spend explaining to us what/how/when you did it and honestly answering the additional inquiries that follow.

Best holiday wishes to ccp and their families!

Found the dev blog only now thanks to the newsletter giving me a review. And I love pseudo code ! Thanks for not withholding from us the omega calculus either. Cool

I must say, this is exactly the kind of information I love to read about.

Personally, being a software engineer myself, I do like the detail (Psuedo-Code + Graphs = Win!). Defiantly keep writing these types of blogs and if possible encourage other teams to do the same, with the same level of detail! It would be... awesome?

Me too. I second all the above.

(Although, it would be OK with me if you don't have to write these articles defiantly. But definitely please do give us more.)

One of the best, if not the best dev write up I have read.

Well done CCP for hiring this person.

Just now seeing this, but worth a shot asking;

What happens if you don't bother sending missile positions at all, and instead only send damage notifications to the attacker and the target?

That was really cool and interesting please do more like this, It is really nice to see what really goes on behind the scenes, instead of just telling use that stuff is getting done :p this makes it more believable :D

This is one of the best dev blog's right up there next to server maintenance, and blown up servers.

Fascinating read. As a programmer myself, I enjoy problem solving like this. I have some questions though:
1) Does each player create a bubble around themselves? Do nearby players all form into one bubble thus all subscribing to the same events within that bubble.
2) from a network and serialization point of view, what gets sent during the lifetime of a missile? Surly everything is known right at the launch.
3) assuming everyone in close proximity uses the same bubble, why do things like missiles even have to be simulated as balls? Aren't they just a timed event from when they are launched?
4) how are inventory updates handled? Assuming, once again, it's a shared bubble; do ammunition counts get cached as part of that bubble and then committed upon leaving?

Keep up the great work guys, looking forward to reading more dev blogs.

loved it, please continue on in-depth insights :)

also, i'd greatly appreciate to see some of the actual algorhythms in real code :)
