So there's a LOT of artist work going into each character then. If I understand the technique correctly, I'd think that means you'd need the pictures for all the front angles, so front eye layers, front mouth layer, front eyebrows/hair layer, etc. Plus possible two side angle versions of each layer, and some way to match poses or synchronize frames from various angles.

Okay. So basically just creating component templates using structures and allocating them individually. For the amount of things I'll actually be spawning that way that actually sounds pretty good. I think the only real big loading costs are going to be the things that are placed on levels at the start anyways. I'll be having probably 9v9 player counts at most, so spawning 18 prefabs like that, plus whenever I have to spawn some sort of rocket or other slow moving projectile wouldn't be too bad.

What do you mean by regen them from scratch? Like have some sort of descriptive format for saving them and build them from that?

In gameplay terms I want to be able to place an object with a spawn point that will have a reference to a player prefab. Any special properties... I allocate all entities in one contiguous array, and they're just an index and a generation value like in the BitSquid article. Component data is usually allocated as a structure of arrays, although it's kind of dependent on the system whether it is or not, it's pretty common to have some of the data that doesn't get iterated a lot (GUIDs, tags, etc.) in a hash map instead.

Nevermind. I figured it out. You can just run make from the bgfx directory on the Visual Studio command prompt without specifying any arguments and it will generate everything...
