Re: What is a chair? Defining objects in video games

The way I would describe ECS is that it's basically OOP but with no concept of object types.

Re: What is a chair? Defining objects in video games

Data Oriented Design was always just a vague collection of ideas that people have been using in the game industry for years even before the term was coined.

Re: Coding Challenge 5 - Meme Graveyard Keeper

Wait, was the challenge over already?

That's too bad. I just finished an SIMD sorting algorithm that could complete it in 40ms single threaded too. Guess I'll just show everyone the algorithm once my new parallel computing language is done.
