Unity Client

Develop with ease

ohm.jpg
Atavism uses Unity for the client-side tasks, which gives you huge benefits and lets you to use over 50 000 assets from the Unity Asset Store, to speed up your development. For example, if you are not an artist, you can get models and textures from the store to fill that gap easily, for example by using Nature Manufacture foliage, Vegetation Studio Pro for foliage placement, Procedural World packages to shape your world and procedurally generate it. While Unity and associated packages give you the ability to build your map quickly and without any hassle, Atavism lets you focus on defining content for your game like quests, items, players and mobs attributes, abilities, NPCs, resource nodes, interactive objects, and much more, while handling hard tasks like networking and synchronization. Atavism answers for these needs by using Unity as a client foundation. We are also providing many integrations with existing packages, so you could use them out of the box like Enviro which is day & night weather system included in Atavism, or integration with World Streamer, to handle bigger maps, just to name a few.

Atavism Online Overview

Best for MMORPG

Conceptually, there are two levels of architecture: the master server which can control accounts and world server details for multiple worlds, and individual game worlds.

NETWORK ARCHITECTURE

Atavism uses mixed TCP and UDP protocols to handle network traffic, the login process is based on TCP while world messaging is based on UDP as this is the only way to handle a significant amount of traffic. To offload networking Atavism uses a number of performance enhancements like Dynamic Quadtree which limits the number of entities required for streaming around the player, packets aggregation, to reduce the number of packets, native Unity prefabs system to read less important data from the client, and present them like tooltips for items. etc. but also server uses the caching system, so for performance reasons it loads static data from the database during startup, to work on them, and handle database operations only if necessary, mostly for dynamic content like player progression. Atavism also lets you split the workload of world server into 12 functional servers like combat, mobs, auction house, proxy, to just name a few.

LOGIN PROCESS

A user logs in to the Master Server (authentication server), using credentials, and connects to the newest login manager which is part of the world server infrastructure (can be on a separate server as well). At this stage, the user can change the world server if there is more than one, and create a character within a particular world server, and enter the world. The login process can be secured by an SSL certificate.

WORLD ARCHITECTURE

Once a user is logged in to the Master Server, he can enter any world for which he is authorized. Each game world runs on a suite of world servers.

The world-specific servers consist of:

  • Proxy server: handles communication between the client and all other services.
  • Authentication Server: handles user authentications.
  • Login server: character selection and creation.
  • World Manager Server: controls a world's geography and what PCs and mobs can see using dynamic quadtree functionality.
  • Object Manager Server: saves and retrieves permanent object data to and from the world database server. Communicates with the database using JDBC.
  • World Database: contains all of the world's persistent information. By default, this is a MySQL/MariaDB database, but can be any JDBC-compliant database.
  • Message Domain Server: facilitates messaging among server processes
  • Mob Server: controls mobs and NPCs.
  • Combat Server: controls combat functions .
  • Inventory/Trading Server: controls objects and secure trading.
  • Chat Server: handles all chat related tasks, including saving all chat commands in the database or the log file.
  • Weather Server: controls weather, randomization, and transition which can be adjusted per instance.
  • Auction Server: handles auction house functionality.
  • Quests Server: controls quests related tasks.
  • Instance Server: handles instances (world, dungeons, private, guild, etc.).
  • Faction Server: defines states between entities based on the factions and their relations.
  • Proxy Server: handles all clients-servers communications.

You, control and operate all the above servers. They can run them on separate hardware platforms, if desired, for improved performance.

INSTANCES

The world is split up into one or more instances. An instance can be a single and contiguous zone defined by a single scene. There is no visibility between instances. except for groups, guilds, chat, and some global messaging. Moving between instances requires a loading screen.

ZONES

Zones are dynamically partitioned by a quad-tree. The topmost level of the quad-tree represents the entire zone, which is then divided into 4 equal-sized regions by the quad-tree. The four new regions cumulatively cover the entire space of its parent node. As leaf-nodes (nodes that have no children) become populated by objects and users, the server will further subdivide regions using the same algorithm. All objects are placed into the quad-tree to make it easier to find out what is near an object. This allows the server to consider only a subset of all objects it knows about when performing distance checks. For example, when a user moves around and comes close to an object, the server tells the client about the new object. Using the quad-tree nodes, the server compares the client's distance only with objects within the user's current quad-tree node and adjacent ones which are within the user perception range. 

MULTIPLE INSTANCES/ZONES

When do you need a new instance (as opposed to a quad-tree region)? When you cannot fit your content into an existing instance, you need to create a new instance. This may happen in the following scenarios: your world is extremely big or the new area does not occupy the same space, as is with instanced dungeons, or if you enter a house that is bigger than its physical structure. Instances are also used to partition large player populations or create private spaces. When a PC moves from one area to another, it is called instancing or zoning. The client will switch to a loading screen while it's loading the new zone. Game developers have to keep this in mind when designing gameplay. The client does not see or know about zones other than the one it is occupying.

 

Atavism Online Server Architecture

Best Solid scalable solution

atavism2_v4.jpg

Atavism Online is a cluster of server processes designed to operate within a platform or cloud environment.     

Atavism servers are developed in Java 8 and a small portion is in Python. All elements are multithreaded, to use the resources of your server with the most efficient way, and provide amazing scalability level.
      
Atavism provides a true full-fledged massive virtual world for Unity. This is possible thanks to optioning to split the workload between functional servers like combat server, auction house server, proxy server, mobs server, arena server login manager server, etc. up to 12 servers (one of each type). Currently, we are working on horizontal scaling which will let you start more servers of each type like multiple proxy and world servers.

Servers connect to each other by agents which are subscribing to the domain server.
