@Eddlm It's something I've always been conscious of, ever since the days we would try and cram small routines into zero page on a Commodore 64, because it was the fastest 256 bytes of memory in the system... you just couldn't do that much with 256 bytes though.
I think there are two approaches, either spread the load, or spread the frequency of collecting that load. All the mods I have done up to now have required me to use the former method for one reason or another. In an ideal world, I would combine the two mods that need this into one, so only one collection takes place... but they're very different mods so it might limit their appeal.
@ReNNie Ah, yeah sorry, I get all sorts of random chats as well as civilised ones but I am trying to get my head back into being productive, so I just wanted to lock things down for a while. It's hard trying to find the balance between being anti-social and productive, sometimes i just have to force the issue onto the unpopular side of the line, to get things done.
I''ve not abandoned this thread as it's still something I want to resolve to fulfill my plan of building an automated addon-creation tool. So by all means either post more comments on here, or if you feel they are better suited in an alternate existing topic, drop a tag for me and I'll pop by.
