what do you think is the fastest for accessing tile and environment data? (Gamemaker)

- tilemap_get on the tilemap
- buffer_peek on a processed version of the tilemap
- an array stored on the object with all surrounding tiles that's updated when you move to a new grid position

I guess my real question is how fast it is to access an array vs accessing a function or buffer


while talking about this in a server, I realized that the array would be updated whenever Lance moved grid positions in a 16x16 grid, which could potentially be a lot of updates depending on how far the collision pushes him out, making this entire thing not optimal lmao
