- How to draw only visible tiles? 3 answers
I am working on a desktop game in C#, with Monogame framework. I am storing the tile instances in a 2D Array, for the sake of easy collision detection. But the levels are big (often 100x100 or bigger) and there are lots of tiles out of the screen bounds all the time which I should not draw. At the moment I'm running through the arrays and checking whether they are in the screen bounds or outside, but that may not be too efficient due to the big count of the tiles.
Is there any better way to hide out of bounds tiles?
