Unity 5 porting begins!

#40
Lamb I need a computer update. When I first built this PC i7 wasn't worth the money, couldn't be properly utilised without wasting thousands of dollars on everything else. I've only been able to do incremental updates over the years, still stuck with a GTX 570 (last generation without ShadowPlay =[) though I at least have the best i5 CPU that's compatible. Need to try and save to update.

Remove the now existing lag creators: Giant Helicopters and Gunspam which lag morbidly alot

Also this isn't what optimization is. Removing something completely is a last resort because you've failed to optimize the relevant feature enough.

I've never used Unity myself so I'm not 100% sure but I believe the main difference with Unity 5 is it allows for a 64x build and proper multi-threading. So now anyone running a 64bit OS will be able to utilise more than 2GB RAM for preloading and such. Prioritisation of what should be done with that extra memory usage would have to be done manually for best performance. Multi-threading will allow for huge processing improvements but will be far from optimally utilized by default. The actual structure of the coding will have to be changed with some parts being compressed while others are modularised. Coding specifically for different levels of multi-threading is a lot different. This is the single reason that pretty much every multi-platform release game for the last generation of consoles ran better on Xbox 360 than PS3. They weren't coded to take full advantage of the PS3's more complex CPU. In fact even on exclusive titles, developers only started learning how to fully utilise the extra processing potential in the last couple years before the release of the PS4.

tl;dr we have use of more memory, ability to further isolate certain computations to individual CPU cores for improved performance. HOWEVER the actual code structure needs to be altered to fully implement such changes.
