Cloned object
« on: February 19, 2008, 06:44:47 am »
I thought about using cloned platforms in this game to save file size, etc.  I'm wondering how this will affect performance, or what would be the best way to get good performance from a lot of cloned platforms and walls rather than a larger structure like the castle that is octree.  What do you recommend for that?

It depends. Personally, i prefer to use one larger object with an octree when possible, because it should be a little faster. Anyway, it depends on your needs. If you want to move some platforms, you may be better off with single objects.

O.K.  It wouldn't take much file space to use one object, either.  I can just reuse switches and elevators and things.
