I would like to share some of my latest endeavours, regarding game development, that I’ve have encountered, while at lead technical artist role (currently @ CDProjektRed).
Lately I’ve found out, that copy-paste technique (I’ve just called it, copy-paste technique but, it might goes on some other, better nextgen name in other studios) – is getting more and more popular.
Not only because of savings of countless man-hours, or, (even better!) for carving the way to new, extremely advanced features – but because of simplicity, reliability, and elegance. It is something everyone (will) eventually follow.
*not actual code
The shortcut for it is Ctrl+C and then Ctrl+V. Generally will compile, and the performance, well, it depends. Mostly ok (if not, try restarting your java thing).
