comment Efficient way to calculate “vision cones” on 2D tile map?
This sounds like the vision algorithms used in roguelikes. Those might be some inspiration. I found a page listing various approaches to the problem.

comment Why does my code dividing a 2D array into chunks fail?
This question has an XY problem. I think we could edit it to ask "How do I do X" (with your solution as an answer) instead of "What is the bug in my implementation of X". That would yield a more generally useful question and be a lot clearer to read. Do you think that would work?

revised Why does my code dividing a 2D array into chunks fail?
Clarified code by removing extraneous indent. Simplified grammar. Matched title to question.

comment Problem with sprite direction and rotation
It all looks OK, but I can't run your code and "running it in my head" is really hard. On further thought, this question seems to have an XY problem: It might be clearer for everyone if you phrased the question as "How can I do X?" rather than "What's the bug in my implementation of X?".

revised What exactly does Unreal Engine 4's Class Wizard do?
Removed italics-formatting from title; that isn't Markdown-parsed. Small clarifications and a useful tag.

Inlined link.

comment Where are the parameters to APEX destructible asset / actor documented?
Possibly because this is a link-only answer, even though the question title implied that answers should contain a description. I edited the question to ask only where to find documentation.

revised Where are the parameters to APEX destructible asset / actor documented?
Removed duplication. Matched title to question contents.

comment How should I structure the implementation of turn-based board game rules?
I edited as I could. There's no need to model a state machine as a god object nor is there anything about state machines that inherently attracts code repetition. Could you clarify what you think will be the problem? (Good subjective questions are OK, but this needs some work to become one.)

comment Problem with sprite direction and rotation
This sounds like an issue with the order of the transformations. The faulty rotation and faulty displacement seem like separate issues. What happens if you disable one or the other? Post a minimal example.

revised How should I structure the implementation of turn-based board game rules?
Turn-based strategy is the subject-specific terminology here. Light grammar and clarity pass.

comment Parabolic throw with set Height and range (libgdx)
I'm confused: Why do you have to scale velocities to make your game look the same on a different viewport? Shouldn't you be scaling the positions, if anything?
