At day I work as an ABAP developer in civil service.

At night I am developing WizardMMO, a web-based MMORPG using HTML5 Javascript for the client, Java for the server and MongoDB as database backend. You can follow my progress on my development blog.

comment Rotate an arrow on a plane?
@simonhaines You didn't say what technology you are using, but most graphic APIs support rotation and scaling out-of-the-box. They often also do it GPU accelerated, which is much faster than doing it completely on the CPU like it is done in that article you linked.

All of them. Then decide for yourself which technology fits best for your game idea and your personal style.

This question is far too broad to answer in a reasonable amount of time. One could write a whole book about this topic.

comment Why should I use a list of enemies instead of an array of enemies?
@cluemein No, there isn't. The .NET List is internally handled as an array. The interface pretends to be able to resize dynamically, but the implementation just does an expensive reallocation when the capacity is exceeded. Use LinkedList when you want cheap resizing and don't need index access. My answer explains this in greater detail.

comment How do I hook up new spell scripts in Skyrim?
Hello Marie. You've asked another question which sounds as if you found a solution yourself and got one step further. It would be nice when you would answer your own question so others can learn from your experience. Answering your own questions is not frowned upon like in other communities. It is even encouraged.

comment Slow dictionary access with coordinates as keys
@bornader A Dictionary<int, Whatever> is a common implementation of a sparse array. Doing it as a linked list like in the Wikipedia article would be counter-productive in this case because index-access would be slow.
