For this project we’re using the Photon PUN networking solution. The reason we’re using this system is because it allows us to make use of the cloud servers all around the world. This comes with quite a few advantages:

- Dedicated cloud servers:
- No waiting for slow clients
- Games continue after “host” leaves
- Good connections for everyone
- Advanced matchmaking
Here is a demonstration of our current network implementation:

The whitebox below sets the scene for how the course will look, but once the sun chairs, umbrellas and bright sunshine has been added it will feel like a vacation all over again!
