Pattern Matching and Tuples in Visual Studio 2017 and C# 7
· ☕ 2 min read
Visual Studio is now 20 years old and the next generation of C# has also recently been released. We’re going to explore two of the features I’ve been most excited about in C# 7: Tuples and Pattern Matching!
Implementing Marching Squares - Lets Make 2D Voxel Terrain - Part 11
· ☕ 2 min read
We’re finally there! Time to add the marching squares algorithm to our voxel terrain. Unlike our previous implementation marching squares is going to look at the four nearest points in our quadtree and treat them as vertices.
Creating an Object Pool - Lets Make an Asteroid Belt- Part 6

In this video we’re going to be implementing a Generic Object Pool. Object Pooling is a design pattern focused on removing expensive operations such as instantiation or deletion of objects and instead relying upon a constant “pool” of objects which can be activated or deactivated as needed without needing to actually create new ones.
Physical Asteroid LODs - Lets Make an Asteroid Belt - Part 5

Today we’re going to try something a little different! Lets explore building 3D models using the included tools in the Windows 10 Creators Update and see how useful these tools are for our game development needs.
Real Time Voxel Updates - Lets Make 2D Voxel Terrain - Part 6
· ☕ 2 min read
Today we’re going to be making the voxels in our 2d voxel terrain update in real time! This means we’re going to make it so that we can easily insert and delete elements from our tree and also modify things so we’re able to regenerate our mesh when that happens.
