SVG Extension - advantages & disadvantages.
First of all what is this SVG Extension? Its powerful extension, it lets you use vector graphics (svg file format) in your game, which means you may achieve mostly perfect graphic quality, no matter what kind of device your players use! But obviously it has also some disadvantages, below I will try to point out benefits and drawbacks of usage.
- mostly perfect graphic quality, no more worry about scaling issues
- relatively small svg file size (with simple shapes for example!)
- less app size (you don't have to provide many different size assets)
- longer application loading (svg is converted into png) - especially with detailed graphic.
- relatively big svg file size (for more advanced graphics, many details, ex. shadows etc)
- you can not use every possible vector graphic features
