Hello, I have been working on a “Magic” style card game that is finally reaching a “Playable” state. My question(s) is 4 fold.
I have on the order of 1200 cards total. Should these be gathered into 1 large image file?
(I had this previously recommended, but am checking opinions on this.)
Assuming the above is “yes.” Should all 1200 card objects share the same material and texture.
Since an image file of suitable resolution for all 1200 cards is 24.4mb for .jpeg or 87.8mb for .png is there a preference?
Any suggestions regarding initial load times, which on my rather powerful computer is around 3 secs, just for the cards (10 on my laptop), would be appreciated.
