The past days have been the usual cycle of SPT development; staying up late, sleeping short and be on standby in case help is immediately required. It's nothing new and not nearly as bad as the release of EFT 0.12.9, where they released a new update each day for 3 months straight .
I wanted to resume development of the Haru project to kill some time during standby. However, I realized something else takes priority. SPT-AKI and EFT's documentation is rather sparse. Since more individuals are working on their own EFT server implementations and only roughly 5 people know the server as well as I do, I decided to start a new project.
I'm currently documenting the broad overview of how server requests and responses work, what the properties in the data do, how the server handles comminucation and how various client subsystems related to running EFT offline function. This also includes historical information, tracing back to 0.11.7.3333.

It is far from complete, I'll keep updating it in the upcoming days.
This post is also a call for help; I am looking for someone capable of teaching
There are many skilled programmers in the Chinese community, and would love to give them a chance at getting to know EFT's internals. This would also help modders to understand how EFT's server functions internally.
At last, I would like to extend my special thanks to
Without ECHO's effort, comminucation would've proven really difficult the past two years.
Without Silent.YH, I wouldn't have had the platform and support to be part of the Chinese community and the ability share information with all of your.
Thank you for your time, and would love to hear your thoughts below
