I have been learning a lot of inheritance in C#. But am wondering if there are other ways that can be cleaner for component based setups.
I have objects that are all pretty much the same but they have a unique behaviour tied to them, which i currently just override a virtual method.
So every new component i'm making a new class that inherits the Component base class.
Are there cleaner ways to do this in C# rather than have 15 scripts of a class of each component and their unique behaviour?
Pseudo example of the inheritance i have:
Base Class - Component
WaterPump : Component
//unique behaviour moves water around a system
PowerGenerator : Component
//unique behaviour creates power units and adds to the system
enter code here
WaterGenerator : Component
//unique behaviour creates water units and adds to the system
....the list goes on
They have other unique behaviours beyond just simple add/create but just wanted to explain the situation. I have a lot of classes for every single type that requires unique behaviour.
It's starting to get a bit silly - but i don't know how to attach a behaviour to a component so i am not creating a new derived component every single time. Is there any design setup i can do that can improve this?
