Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How frequently should I use RPCs?

Should I mostly refrain from the use of RPCs and rely on event propagation via replicated variables?

Like in events of

  • capturing a flag (and transmitting who captured it)

  • moving a piece on a chessboard (which piece, which position)

  • Death messages (who, cause)

  • ...

And if I shouldnt use RPCs, why?

There is no real right or wrong about this. RPCs are the most direct, but greedy way of getting to the client. Normal replication happens in a more bandwidth friendly way.

Think of RPCs as "you need it now, here is everything with it" and normal replication as "when you have time, please update this value".

Here are some good references:
