On the server? Note this has to be done for each client. The reason it's
normally done on the client is to allow the server to run with less CPU load.
The client typically has a much beefier CPU, and a server is typically shared
not only between clients but between games.

Certainly no info should be sent outside of the radius of visibility
established by fog or other rules. That's an easy thing for the server to do.

Thanks, a very interesting technique. If the BF architecture is similar,
perhaps DICE could license this.
