Now I can handle other players I implemented a course array to the server much like you would do for lobbies for other games. Players in courses can only talk and see players in the same course. at the moment there is a limit technically of 100 players in a course. However I know the client will crash if the player ID is that high so suspect the client limit is much lower. As a result I may need to create a 2d array and dynamically overflow players into other courses. As there isn’t a way to select which main course you are a part of I’m not sure how well this will work.

That being said. With the server in a some what working state. I’m hosting a server for people from the TXR community discord to join and have a test of the current server code and report any bugs. So far it has been working pretty well. However there aren’t too many players online at any one time it peaked at 5 players. I’d like to get it tested with 20, 30 or 40 players. I’ll just keep updating the server with my latest build until I host a public alpha/beta.
