It would ways more interesting to see a real-life profile. Such a spam fest don't give very realistic results, so you will always got a specific part of code unusually often get called and other codes runs never. E.g. It is ways more important to know how well the LOS code performs compared to MapDamage or (any) CommandAI, etc.
You only get those results in a real-life replay (3v3 or something like that).

And yeah, those SQRTs in the mapdamage code are very time consuming, but they are used in synced code, that's why hold off to replace them with fastmath :/
Also the slope and normals should be imo computed in one step, but for some strange reason the slope loop uses a 3 offset, so it isn't the same as (1.0-normal.y) for the specific spot o_O

What profiling tool(s) did you use to produce those graphs?
