Pretty straight forward question and not a lot to write here.
If I use Lists/Arrays that aren’t actively executing after Awake/Start – do they need to be cleared? Could it be detrimental to performance on larger projects?
For example in my procedural item creation I have a list of EStats that live on the Base Item Assets that upon Awake() will run once that goes through said EStat List - for the purpose of creating randomized modifiers to add to the item.
After enumerating over this once, that List of EStats is virtually doing nothing – the EStat list remains populated with information it’s no longer using.
So, Is that something to be mindful about when using tonnes of Lists/Arrays if they’re not cleared?
