After our successful multiplayer trials, we considered updating more of our existing gameplay for netplay. However, it was clear that we had a growing performance problem in some of our systems that required a deeper fix. Enter the Quadtree: a data structure that provides logarithmic-time lookup for an entity in our map based on its position. We implemented and tested multiple subroutines for the tree, and are excited to put all the pieces together in our next session.
