Words from Notch
I struggled for a long time to figure out exactly why players and mobs would sometimes vanish when players respawn, and finally gave up and asked Jakob to help me sort out the problem.
While explaining the problem, we found the cause.
Turns out that the entities failed to get added to the global render list. This is caused by the chunk not being prepared when the entity is added. The servers SHOULD tell the client what chunks to render before adding entities. Then I remembered the throttling which makes entity updates higher priority than chunk updates..
So now whenever the server tells the client to add an entity, it gets added to the ΓΓé¼┼ôreinsert if ever lostΓΓé¼┬¥-list I already have in place, but which was only used for a few special entities (mainly the local player) so far.
The client has been updated to 1.2.3_04 (hey look at that!), and the server has an optional update to 0.2.5_02.
IΓΓé¼Γäóve got plenty of more bugs to address in SMP, which will be fixed over the coming weeks. I think we might be getting close to beta soon. =D
(btw, working in an office with real people is AWESOME. I love it)
