comment Finite-state machine with more than one concurrent state
Why are you thinking in terms of states? Blinded, paralyzed, etc should be properties, "tags" if you prefer.

comment Should I have multiple small textures or a single big one?
@bummzack I don't know enough about the topic to create a valid benchmark. For example I don't know what is a significant texture size or how many textures are needed to start spotting differences.

comment How to properly implement message handling in a component based entity system?
I totally agree with this. I'm using this very similar approach in my game and I believe this will pay off in the long run. This is how the collision system (or manager) should work (I actually believe it's possible to not have a messaging system at all).

comment Is the Manhattan distance monotonic when used as heuristic function?
Yes, this is exactly the kind of answer I was looking for. It would be nice to know what happens if the heuristic function is h(x) = min(manhattan(p1), manhattan(p2)) (i.e. either p1 or p2 are good ending point and I want to reach the nearest one). Is this h(x) still monotonic?

The original question was about consistent as in monotonic.

comment Has piracy ever resulted in a developer getting shut down?
@Vaughan Hilts. My thoughts exactly! That was a major flaw in their architecture...
