This looks pretty cool - may I ask what types of effect you mean?

ie. any environment system that is dependent on the distances between an even and a fixed source; my Dynamic Sound script, a shadow script (I intend to make one eventually), heck, you could make a script that makes it snow or rain harder depending on how close you are to a source. stuff like that
the DEE is designed to pull all that into a centralized update where all you have to do is call the $DEE.update and it will update everything while keeping lag caused by bad coding low. as such if any one can help to reduce the lag while keeping the the out put of the methods that same feel free to offer suggestions. I've already gotten a good deal of advise from Blizzard and cut about 90% of the original lag. but if it can be taken down even more then by all means tell me.


UPDATE:
v1.21 fixes a bug when there is more than one map
