Join Dan Violet Sagmiller for an in-depth discussion in this video Visibility manager, part of Unity 5: Build a Real-Time Strategy Game.
- [Voiceover] At present, our map shows us all the units…at the same time.…But we only want to see the ones…that are in range.…To do checks that compare visible ranges…to all opponent units can get costly.…So we'll need a way to reduce its hit…to performance as well.…So what I'm gonna do…is create a visibility manager.…So under Scripts in the HUD…I'm gonna right-click…create a new C# script…called Visibility Manager.…Now, Visibility Manager…is gonna need some changes in Map Blip.…
We need to be able to see the blip…and access it publicly…so that we can change it…and make it invisible or visible.…So let's go into Map Blip.…In Map Blip we have the private blip right now.…But since we need to make it enabled or disabled…through an external class,…we'll need to make it public.…However, if we make it public…that also means that a designer…coming in will see this listed in the inspector,…which means it's a field that looks like…they should be setting.…We don't want to give that illusion.…So instead I'm making a public property…
