    So, I have a top down game where almost every object (around 30 of them) draws self and 6 other body parts via draw_sprite_ext() (they move, change colour, size etc) and my question is if there will be at least a small fps increase if I let only one instance draw all the stuff instead of 30? Depth is not a problem here
    I heard somewhere it might work like that but the code would be pretty long so I'd rather ask if it's worth it

    It won't be worth it unless you are making changes using draw_set_color(), draw_set_alpha() or gpu_set_blendmode and could reduce the number of those functions by drawing them in bulk.

    I think I saw someone do drawing through the PARENT by using draw self on parent and leaving the rest not visible, IDK if this applies since you have very specific draws. one of friendly cosmonaut videos I think.
