This page lists some ideas and issues in delivering the shot and player info to Frontend from Backend.
+
 
+
= Shots =
+
 
+
== In BZAdvancedRobot ==
+
* getShots() -type of functions (get all shots, shots in certain volume, ...) return a list of shots (class Shot)
+
 
+
== In Shot ==
+
* getPosition(dt) -return position after dt seconds as is assumed
+
* getType() - normal? gm? laser? ...
+
* getShooter() - who shot it? at least own shots should be distinguished because on no-rico servers we could just throw them away when doing collision forecasts
+
 
+
* unique identifier so that frontend and backend can refer to individual shots: can be composed using player id and shot id
+
 
+
= Players =
+
 
+
== About the current Tank system ==
+
 
+
* We can only get all the players at the same time and all the information is sent too
+
* Sending callsigns there is a problem with spaces in callsigns (i haven't tested it but I'd assume so)
+
 
+
What could be instead?
+
 
+
== In BZAdvancedRobot ==
+
* getPlayers() -type of functions return a list of players (class Tank)
+
 
+
== In Tank ==
+
* getPosition(dt) -return assumed position after dt seconds, "Haha meet my bullet there!"
+
* getVelocity() -return current velocity, "So that's the speed you got"
+
* getAngularVelocity() -return current angular velocity, "It's turning to face us! Fire!"
+
* getHeading() -which way the bot is heading? "ARGH It's aiming us!"
+
 
+
* unique identifier so that frontend and backend can refer to individual players: we got playerid
+
 
+
= Issues =
+
 
+
Functions in Tank and Shot will have to call backend. Should we make a
+
separate request for each of them or some kind of general
+
"GetShotInfoRequest <command> [arguments]" ?
+
 
+
Are there functions ready in bzflag to ask for assumed positions of tanks
+
or bullets after dt seconds without updating them first?
