So... And that's why network took so long in LW6 (up to "it never
happened") since LW is about moving so many "fighters" I crafted an idea
of a distributed network mode. These kind of software have been around
for years now, a well-known example I know and have been working with is
Cassandra, which has amazing bandwidth and super low latency compared to
other systems. I've been toying around with these ideas for years and in
Go and I start having interesting prototypes there. It's a bit
complicated but manageable. I think Godot script can handle that. Will see.

But yes, you nail it, latency is key.

Have a nice day,
