Today in my Coding lesson we started by learning about normalisation and magnitude. Magnitude is basically the length of a vector. It is calculated using pythagoras.
An example of magnitude being used in a game is to measure the distance between 2 objects, e.g. the character and the objective. This can be coded by using: Vector3.Destination
Normalisation sets the magnitude to 1. This can also be known as 1 unit vector. To normalise co-ordinates you divide them by the magnitude.
An example of this is (3,4) with a magnitude of 5. After dividing the co-ordinates by 5 you should be left with (3/5,4/5). This will go to (0.6,0.8).
For my next coding lesson I need to research Instantiation, While Loops, Probability and Averages.
For my solo game I will hopefully be creating a maze game. I haven’t started to create it yet but I am about to start planning it
