Challenge Solution: Possible Fixes to Simulation Error

The sources of error are:

  1. Numerical Integration Error
  2. Integration Error Magnification
  3. Rotation Error Magnification

Possible Solutions:

  1. Setup server to constantly send vehicle transform data to clients
    Pros: doesn’t allow cheating; transform data will always be correct
    Cons: jittery
  2. Send vehicle transform data from local machine to server
    Pros: transform data will always be the same
    Cons: allows cheating
  3. replicate velocity and rotation
    Pros: decreases magnitude of error
    Cons: error will still exist (and become larger over time); allows cheating

edit: removed some wrong/confusing stuff from my post.
