From: Newcastle, NSW, Australia
There are 3 areas where I would like to see improvements in performance:
1. Route finding - the fundamental code for this has not change in years, I'm sure we could do things better now.
2. Line of Site - consumes about as much time as route finding, especcailly when there are lots of units, again a while since we visited this last.
3. Threading - There is only one AI thread, more units, slower game, does ot matter how many cores you have, game is threaded but more than 2 cores does not help much.
No 3 looks like being my next big job, we are looking at diving the AI thread into 2 one per side. Stepping stone to having one per command, with multiple commands per side.
When will any of this happen, sometime
