comment Searching a map fewer times
I read that article a few times before. Even if components talk to each other, they'd still have to query the entity for the right component, wouldn't they? The reason I made the distinction between Attributes and Behaviors is to reduce the number of unnecessary calls to update() (Attrbutes don't update themselves), and to reduce the size of the map so that it only holds the components of interest (ie. Attributes). [cont'd]

Seeing as it causes so much confusion I was planning on changing its name anyway. Now it's called a 'controller'...

I'm not sure that we're not just debating terminology here... My state just gets sent events from the EventManager and, based on those events, it gives instructions to the Entity. Isn't that pretty much what a controller component does, except I called it a 'state' instead?

@Blecki And what is the purpose of the Controller, other than storing the state?

@josh Currently, each state is its own component. However, the design is subject to many changes since I'm still debating it. (Entity has a pointer to an EntityState object; that pointer can point to any implementation of the base state class.)

@The Communist Duck: C++, but that shouldn't matter.

I'm not trying to make 'good' IDs. I'm trying to get rid of IDs.

@Tetrad: Isn't my question clear enough? No IDs.
