Technical FAQs

Your questions answered

Yes - but only a few milliseconds. All your network data passes through the SpatialOS Runtime, gets stored our in-memory database and is then sent where it needs to go. We designed this to allow for high throughput with low-latency games.

SpatialOS includes a highly configurable, dynamic area-of-interest system. This allows you to tightly control which players see what at variable frequencies, and to degrade gracefully and intelligently when high-density battles break out.

SpatialOS ensures there is an overlap boundary between any adjacent servers. This allows raycasts to hit players that may be on an adjacent server. SpatialOS also enables cross-server RPCs so you can communicate between servers.
