Wrote an article that describes how I used vertex shaders in Garden Wars to reduce draw calls from a potential ~2500 down to ~500. Like the others I’ve written, it’s not super detailed with the “how”, but does have lots of shiny gifs to look at throughout the process
a very neat article to read. I knew it could be done, and that it helped the drawcall count, but I didn’t realize you could reduce it quite THAT much under any circumstance. Well done.
