A map based dead reckoning protocol for updating location information
Last, the entity state PDU contains an identifier that tells all other nodes on the net which dead reckoning algorithm to use for this entity.
Fortunately, your tax dollars have been at work developing technical solutions for networked games. of Defense has invested heavily in distributed simulation for military training, most notably in the development of the Distributed Interactive Simulation (DIS) protocol, which developed out of the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency's (DARPA) SIMNET project.
The owner of an entity remembers the last time it put out an entity state PDU and also runs the dead reckoning algorithm based on that PDU.
