CurrentModel

:idea:

Perhaps super obvious .. but in case you dislike using "CurrentModel" to access build-in properties of a Clone from itself ( because it's too lengthy ), you can create a "alias" by assigning "CurrentModel" to a ( local ) model variable.

So for example, instead of ..

Code: Select all

CurrentModel.Position.X = 8.0;
CurrentModel.Rotation.Z = 0.5;
.. you could use ..

Code: Select all

model this = CurrentModel;

this.Position.X = 8.0;
this.Rotation.Z = 0.5;
The performance penalty for doing this is pretty much neglectable.
