1:02:02Don't you think most of the storage concerns stem from having just high and low entities and would be solved by having more granularity there so you have more and smaller arrays of entities with some particular aspect?

1:02:47You mentioned considering having the world chunks store a fixed entity count and then add multiple chunks to the hash table if necessary to store more entities. If you were to go that route, how would you compare one chunk to another? Multiple chunks would have the same X,Y,Z.

1:05:23Why can't world_position just have a pointer to a world_chunk instead of all those AbsTiles? Then Offset_ is relative to the world_chunk.

1:07:24I didn't get to watch the entire stream so I don't know if you considered it, but why don't you have a flag for “about to be deleted” that every entity checks against and nulls pointers. Have it visible for all entities for one frame.

1:09:31(follow-up) What I was getting to is that we seem to be working towards what's called the Entity Component system where what we call now “high” and “low” are just components alongside anything else we want to add to entities later.
