Okay as the title suggests, English is not my "cup of tea" But why are the nouns and verbs split ? I mean why have the bandwith devoted to 2 types an action and a (object,place, or thing) ? This is "obviously" going to cause some sync problems as you place a priority on one then the other will be ignored for some time so I guess the whole reason for this post is why not combine the 2 so that each (object,place,or thing) has the verb embeded into it ?

Object A = Me
Object B = Demorian
Object C = Missle
Object D = Missle

(Simple but hope it gets across 0_o, imagine each vector has a direction attached to it but I'm too lazy to give it one )

Time = 0:00:00
Object A (0,0 with Vector 0)
Object B (5,0 with Vector 0)

Time = 0:00:01
Object A (0,0 with Vector 0)
Object B (6,0 with Vector 1+)

Time = 0:00:03
Object A (1,0 with Vector 1+)
Object B (8,0 with Vector 2+)

Time = 0:00:04
Object A (2,0 with Vector 1+)
Object B (10,0 with Vector 2+)
Object C (2,0 with vector 4+ Attached to Object A)

Time = 0:00:05
Object A (3,0 with Vector 1+)
Object B (12,0 with Vector 2+)
Object C (6,0 with vector 4+ Attached to Object A)

Time = 0:00:06
Object A (4,0 with Vector 1+)
Object B (14,0 with Vector 2+)
Object C (10,0 with vector 4+ Attached to Object A)

Time = 0:00:07
Object A (5,0 with Vector 1+)
Object B (16,0 with Vector 2+)
Object C (14,0 with vector 4+ Attached to Object A)
Object D (5,0 with Vector 4+ Attached to Object A)

uh oh doesn't look good for Object B

Time = 0:00:08
Object A (6,0 with Vector 1+)
Object B (18,0 with Vector 2+)
Object C (18,0 with vector 4+ Attached to Object A)
Object D (9,0 with Vector 4+ Attached to Object A)

Time = 0:00:09
Object A (7,0 with Vector 1+)
Object B (20,0 with Vector 2+) (Takes Damage down to 1/2 hull)
Object C (20,0 with vector 0 Attached to Object A - Hit Object B) (Explosion Effect)
Object D (13,0 with Vector 4+ Attached to Object A)

Time = 0:00:10
Object A (8,0 with Vector 1+)
Object B (22,0 with Vector 2+)
Object C (END) (Object no longer exists and thierfore no action required, deleted from server)
Object D (17,0 with Vector 4+ Attached to Object A)

Time = 0:00:11
Object A (9,0 with Vector 1+)
Object B (24,0 with Vector 2+)
Object D (21,0 with Vector 4+ Attached to Object A)

Time = 0:00:12
Object A (10,0 with Vector 1+)
Object B (25,0 with Vector 1+) (For the sake of simple numbers Demo foolishly slowed down )
Object D (25,0 with Vector 4+ Attached to Object A)

Time = 0:00:13
Object A (11,0 with Vector 1+)
Object B (26,0 with Vector 1+)
Object D (26,0 with Vector 0 Attached to Object A - Hit Object B) (Explosion Effect)

Time = 0:00:14
Object A (12,0 with Vector 1+)
Object B (END)
Object D (END)

Time = 0:00:15
Object A (12,0 with Vector 1+) (Does the happy dance )

Just a simple idea of what I mean but each time a object is made the verb is incorperated with it somehow, so no matter when the client side recieves the data they get the action/verb at the same time and hopefully reduces the lag

Note, no players were harmed dureing the production of this fictional but often true story board

Just to clarify on some things going to simplify what the Object has embeded into it.

Object (A-Z or Some 8 digit number to corespond with the memory cell ) (X,Y cordinate) (Vector) (Action ie.. Fire Object x, Increse speed, Decrese Speed, etc ..... has all the actions any ship of the class can do)

-PK

Just one thing.... what are nouns and verbs, Object and Class? or Procedures and variables?

Sorry but I did not do C++ish language at school. I only know Visual Basic, HTML and Java(I dont put flash in here since its NOT a programming language cause its using VBscrips)

The answer to your Essay is really simple:

Nouns are only transferred once, initially, on creation, then updated via Verbs.

To Ceridan; Nouns are Objects, Verbs are Messages.
