Making a Game in Unity 035: Rocks & Swimming

Making a game in Unity 035

In this devlog I modeled a low poly rock and incorporated it into my procedural generation system. I also added swimming mechanics, and I attempted to fix client prediction & reconcilation when on board a ship.

Ever since I added prediction, standing and moving around on boats has resulted in extremely jittery player movement, which is due to the fact that clients see ships in the past compared to the server. I was hoping to fix that up, but I ran into some more issues, and I’m beginning to wonder if I should scrap prediction/reconciliation for now in favor of working on actual gameplay.
