which is then managed by a component container (game-object) and defines a lot of messages and events to get the data to the right point.I’m arguing that game-objects are always game-specific but with time-dependent functions you just have to combine the existing functionality in the right way for every specific game-object.In FRP everything is based upon time, thus time should be abstracted away into “time dependent functions” (behaviors).A Mover-”component” should just produce a translation vector over time from user-input — nothing more!Game developers like abstract and re-usable game-engines after all.
The following diagram illustrates such a monolithic class hierarchy (adopted from the book ): Game-object components address these issues by reducing game-objects to identifiable containers of components, where each component encapsulates some reusable functionality and automatically communicates with other components.
And if we want it to be a bit random, we just compose the output with the random function in the game-object definition.
A pure mathematical function is the most isolated, self-existing and reusable component you can get, as it depends (and only depends! There is no need the encapsulate a function into a component…
We all know that Latina girls are hot very hot girls and very beautiful, but this one is really gorgeous!
Her name is Abbie she is from Spain, and she is a super lovely lady.
[...] In plain English: “In order to allow a new component to be added to an existing environment of components in a game-object and automatically communicate with each other, the communication protocol between the components has to be predefined“.
