Optimization

  • Completely removed CParticleDeferredReleaseObjects class; all objects now either released in main thread, or are thread-safe released, or are forced to PPU (physics and geom attachment).
  • Particle stats gathering optimization and consolidation, 200 lines less code. No longer allocate stats in CParticleEffect; collect dynamically in map.
  • Simplified application of MinPixels particle param. Param now also prevents distance culling.
  • Removed some obsolete negative-age particle code.
  • Removed confusing notion of parent SubEmitters in sibling Containers; was used for target generation (now specified in child TargetMotion param), and synchronised pulsing (now requires parent emitter).
  • Put particle param conversion from older versions back inside case switch, avoiding needless work on recent versions.
  • Removed particle merging, due to inconsistent rendering.
  • Max distance check for animated cloth.
  • Various character attachment optimizations.
  • Joint List is also sorted now.

Refactored

  • Changed separate location members in CParticle to standard QuatTS, for better interoperability and simplicity. Converted tail history to also use QuatTS.
  • Moved Age and LifeTime fields to SParticleTimeState, renamed LifeTime and EndAge everywhere to StopAge for consistency. Simplified some particle age-related code.
  • CryArray minor cleanup: Moved Storage specifiers up in file to avoid templated forward declarations. Fixed Array<> constructors and assign() functions to avoid unintentional deep copy. Added STACK_ARRAY macros for alloca, removed unused macro from SpuUtils.
  • Remove CryExtension from IComponent.
  • Made EntityProxy and GameObjectExtension derive from IComponent. Fixed potential dangling pointer when deleting GameObjectExtensions.
  • Added crycomponent_cast to cast between IComponent types (note: this is a static cast).
  • Turned IComponentPtr into a boost::shared_ptr. Made Component system perform a lazy registration in order to reduce memory overhead for components that never get an event.
  • Changed 'enable' and 'lazy' arguments into flags.
  • Created SEmitGeom class to combine StatObj and CharInstance into one pointer (for memory savings), and handle geom attachment functions.
  • Refactoring, saves struct memory and 300 lines of code. Renamed CParticleLocEmitter to more descriptive CParticleSource, inherits from SMoveState, STimeState, and SEmitGeom. Particle and Emitter now both inherit from CParticleSource, no separate LocEmitter for parent particles. Parent particles and subemitters now managed by ref counting, fixing targeting and other bugs.
  • Replaced EEmitterState enum with Activate, IsActive, IsAlive methods.
  • Deprecating RaisingWater entity. Use GameVolumes instead.
