Hey , I wanted to combine some ideas of the Actor model with an Entity Component model and wanted to see if anyone had any experience using the actor model for gameplay and if they could present the pros and cons of using such a method. I know that a pro is that it helps with concurrency , but I can see a major con being the allocation of messages for communication between. I've built a code generation tool that can automatically generate messages based on c++ function definitions, so creating a class per message would not be a problem. Thank you!
