the other day i was reading about how the Unreal engine works, they have
the client predicting the physics and sending control events tot he
server. During a lag spike the client continues to simulate the motion
by itself, and then whent he server starts talking again the server
sends the position, speed, rotation etc of stuff and the client adjusts
it's local simulation to match
