Use Unity Assembly Definition Files to improve compile time and project structure. Learn the basics and get in-depth knowledge with examples about how to migrate your project.
Unity DOTS/ECS is powerful at processing huge amounts of operations. This performance relies on data lookup in continuous chunks, but what if you encounter dependencies between entities and have to jump between chunks? All entities should follow a moving target or entities should react to actions from another Entity? This post highlights how entities can interact with each other and what implications this has on performance.
In this blog post I will demonstrate how to use Unity’s EntityComponentSystem as well as Burst compiled Jobs to build a dungeon builder game like the good old DungeonKeeper.
This awesome old game turned out to be the perfect example to show of some techniques that will hopefully help you to get into the mindset of DOTS and EntityComponentSystems.
