Help me understand here. I'm not that big on classes (I prefer my poor old
structs ;) In my system, like you mentioned, all game objects are pretty
much the same, however, I simply use structs. I have one super struct with
substructs (for code legibility and managability). What exactly is the
functional differance? IE, What does using classes and inheritence trees
bring to a mud that using super-structs doesn't?
