    Hello how are you? I would like to ask a question related to the project, if it is possible or in the future you can play on lan. without the need to be a global server may be hosted on the home computer.

    That might be hard tbh, because the original TSO never even had lan, it was hosted all by EA and no one else.

    I understand, but it was just an idea, it might be interesting, after all suggestions are always good :)

    I'll work on implementing something like this in the future.

    Playing LAN should already be possible. Instead of connecting to your global IP you can connect from another PC in the same network using your network IP for example 192.168.2.2

    That's correct. I don't need to do any work then :). Completely forgot about that...

    The final version will support LAN play, but the game won't make much sense with it. (persistent objects will be hard to manage (each player stores their own inventory), and it would be really easy to cheat)
