What does Enklu use for multiplayer optimization?
Enklu uses an in-house multiplayer server built on top of Akka.NET. We transfer data in byte buffers and use hashes where needed to slim down our I/O payloads as much as possible. When clients join/reconnect, they receive a delta of everything that has occurred from the initial scene state, so getting initial game state is also very fast.
