Best practices?
« on: August 30, 2012, 06:01:23 AM »
Hi, I have been checking some of the examples, and I have come across where lots of buttons are created on runtime.

I thought the best practice was to not create things on runtime.


If I got an ingame menu options,  should I have created the menu when starting the application making it disabled and make it visible when requested, or should I create the different menu options during runtime?

Unless you manually want to hardcode your prefabs, there is nothing stopping you preparing them in the Atlas before hand. Problem is, it is a pain changing the atlases later as you have to do each one by hand.
The examples have everything created in runtime as that is basically the entire program. In a real game of course you will stagger your Instantiates across your program when you need them to make the load time less noticable.

Depends on your game/program though to decide your best needs.
