I work full time at a big software company, when I'm not doing that I'm developing games. I keep a development blog at www.byte56.com and you can follow me on twitter.

I've created a course with Lynda.com to teach advanced scripting with the Unity 3D engine, check it out! Have a 10-day free trial to Lynda.com to watch my course and many others

Yes, so attach the debugger and find out why your for loop does nothing.

You need to attach the debugger. Ensure that your Partition method is not clearing out the items or something else is going wrong elsewhere.

comment Questions about self teaching and time consumption
Electrical or software engineering are great career paths. The best way to learn programming is to find a problem you want to solve, and learn what you need to learn to solve it. Then move on to the next problem you want to solve. Also, since you're so upset you didn't start earlier, don't waste your time working from "absolute scratch" to create games. A few years from now you'll be kicking yourself for not starting the actual game development earlier, while you were stuck in low-level-land solving problems that have already been solved better. If you want to make games, make games.

I'm not sure what's wrong with your code. To answer your question, the easiest way to put the items back in the tree correctly after a partition is to remove all the items in the node that was partitioned and simply re-add them to the tree, using your regular add method. Don't try anything fancy.

What have you tried with the code? What do you have so far? What's not working about it?

These are not the kind of answers we look for on any of the stack exchange sites.

comment how to publish free game
Well, the issue is that there are too many ways to do this. Specific to IndieDB, what have you tried? Where are you stuck? Did you follow the instructions that IndieDB provides? Unless you have a more specific problem, your question isn't well suited for this site.

comment 3D Model Render Method
Tell us the problem you're experiencing. "Good method" is subjective and depends entirely on your requirements. We don't know anything about your requirements because you haven't told us.

@douglas14b This is just using OP's existing code. They may have their own reasons for using a coroutine. You can post an answer with your strategy, I'd vote for it
