Tiny ECS example

rrraptorrrraptor Member
I've been learning how to use tiny esc library for a few days, and came up with this project, and thouth that maybe it will be useful for someone.
Its a little bit dirty in some places, but overall i think its pretty good ;)
Here is a video:

And source:

P.S. there is a very strange bug, which i can't fix... You can throw weapons only in 2 (or sometimes 3) directions: right, down, down-right.
P.S.S. throwing logic is in "EGun" class, "throw" method :/

    @rrraptor many thanks for sharing that. I've never used ECS before and now had a bit of a look at it. They are pretty nice but personally I feel they add unnecessary overheads.. even though they do make a lot of other stuff simpler :)

    Well, for PC it's fine I think, for mobiles ... it will be necessary to test :) I'll do it later, perhaps.

    Btw, entites can be just a simple table like in my debugDrawSystem:
    local ent = {drawable = CDrawable.new("main")}
    I used classes because it seemed convenient for me. Systems also can be simplier:
    local system = tiny.system()
    -- filter can look like that:
    system.filter = tiny.requireAll(...) 
    -- or as function:
    function system:filter(ent)
    	return true
    function system:onAdd(ent)
    	-- code
    function system:onRemove(ent)
    	-- code
    Project updated.
    Sorted files in repository, added some comments in files, removed anonymous function from "GameScene".

    Another update. Whats done:
    • Removed an unnecessary check on the static body, because it is excluded by the filter.
    • Overrided tostring method for Vec2
    • Fixed camera positioning when zoomed
    • Added vector limitation for body velocity
    • Removed vector limitation when applying force to the body
    • The camera is now moving more smoothly (thanks to "lerp" function)
