Simulation Optimization Techniques

Simulation games are usually attempting to simulate real-world systems in such a way as to mimic the essence of the system while accounting for accuracy along with physical performance. It's a balancing act. The goal is to approximate the real-world counterpart in a believable and resource efficient way. The key to simulating anything is to … Continue reading Simulation Optimization Techniques


Optimization – Profiling & Cache Coherence

It's far more important that a thing works, than for it to work quickly. Software optimization is a slippery slope and should be embarked upon with an ample supply of caution, focus and above all else, metrics; always metrics. An established mantra is that you should not optimize anything until you see a problem. The … Continue reading Optimization – Profiling & Cache Coherence
