comment Why are radians preferred over degrees in game development?
Of course the actual rotation requires irrational numbers, but tracking the desired angle of rotation should be done with some form of rational which is free of rounding errors. Claiming "it shouldn't be much of a problem" is the first hand-wave on the way to a disaster.

From a numerical perspective you're correct, but from a visual perspective if ONE pixel from a hard edge pops to the wrong value, you're screwed.

comment Creating a game with in game programmable AI
first off, consider that these will be languages and libraries running on your client's machine. You have NO IDEA what capabilities and/or bugs are in even the most basic libraries that are part of some black box you assemble.

trying to make a language safe by subtracting everything that's dangerous is a losing game. For in-game use you need something specialized with particular knowledge of game objects and nothing else.

the key thing is that the embedded language has to be inside (and fully under control of) the game. You would't want your in-game program to delete real files, for example.

comment Model View Control Issue: Null Pointer Initialization Question
Any time you have one process looking at data that another process is changing, it's very hard to imagine all the ways it can go wrong. The best solution is to just don't do it. The second best solition is to use synchronization primitives to be sure that only one can run at once.
