[$200] #315 Speed Up Hash Maps | Requires #314
Price: $200

Description: In GearCity, we use a lot of hashmaps. These improve the performance of the game over what we used to have. However, GearCity is using the first iteration of STL's hashmaps. There is a faster way.

After moving to C++17, we'll have the opportunity to replace the STL hashmaps with The Parallel Hashmap. I used these in AeroMogul and saw a significant performance gain. I can't say what the exact performance implications would be in GearCity, but I suspect at least a 5 to 10% improvement in turn times.

Requirements: #314

Required By: None

Concerns: None

Eric's Opinion: The performance improvements in AeroMogul were so significant that I added bounties #313 and #314 to get this and Bounty #316 into the system.

Links: It doesn't happen unless you contribute!

Benchmarks: See "std::unordered_map | std::hash" for what we have. And "gtl::flat_hash_map | std::hash" for what we'd replace to.
