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!

comment Loading and unloading “chunks” of tiles in a 2d tile engine with 2d camera
@Danjen In this case, since we're talking about a regular grid, the adjacency list would likely also contain information about direction. It's not strictly like a typical graph theory adjacency list.

comment Why does changing texture change it for both objects?
@d3vid Just create a new one and apply the new properties to it. If you have further problems, ask a new question.

comment Random Placement of Objects on a Tilemap
Your algorithm will completely fill the grid. That's not very random.

comment HLSL - Binary operations
It probably does the calculation at compile time when you're using constants, but I'm not sure.

comment Destroy GameObject as an Array of Transform instantiated destroying the whole array
Make sure you check the documentation. Otherwise you'll have to post a new question with more details on the problem. You can also go with the second option, which would allow you more control. Cast a ray of your own and check what it collides with when the mouse button is pressed.

You don't need to put tags in the title, those go in the tags area.

comment Why is it bad to hard-code content?
@eBusiness I'm not sure the amount of hard coded content is actually all that critical. There are plenty of applications that use large amounts of text or other data sources. I think the title question is what really matters here, and that's not specific to game development.

comment How to present limeted rotation possibilities in an editor
What's your actual question? Remember that this isn't the site for "what do you think is best?" type questions. That's a poll for opinions, and we don't do those. Are you having trouble implementing one of these methods? Please edit your post to include a question. Though, it sounds like you just have design indecision, which is something you can take to chat.

comment How can I create a stretchy, breakable pizza cheese material?
Are you actually wanting the cheese to stretch and break? If you could be more specific about what aspect you want to be more realistic, that would help narrow the scope of the question.
