Snippet Angles: Clockwise

Dirac

22710180
JASS:
//Determines if "a" gets closer to "b" by going clockwise.
function Clockwise takes real a, real b returns boolean
    return Sin(b-a)<=0
endfunction


Example:
Lets take 2 angles, lets say 90 and 330

The function [ljass]Clockwise(90,330)[/ljass] returns true, because 90 is closer to 330 by going clockwise.

Explanation:
[ljass]Sin(330-90) - > Sin(240) == -0.866[/ljass]
The result is negative, the function returns true.
"Sin" is a function that evaluates the position of an angle according to it's image in the Y axis.
So if the angle given is between 180- and 0+ it returns a positive number, but if it's between 180+ and 360- it returns a negative number.

So now Imagine comparing 0 to any other given angle. We know that 0 has to go counter-clockwise to reach 30, and Sin(30) is positive, and to reach 330 it has to go clockwise, and Sin(330) is negative.
So basically the function takes the comparison of the two given angles and turns it into comparing the angle to 0.
[ljass]Clockwise(90,330)[/ljass] is the same as [ljass]Clockwise(0,240)[/ljass]

So I have a question sir because I have problems on making my 3 dummies move in a counter clockwise direction. how to set the points on that and if the dummy reaches from 0 to 360 degrees completing the cycle.

    Hmm, how to summarize... Moved to the USA and got married. Became a professional software engineer and solution lead. Learning Godot for game dev. :)
  • jonas jonas:
    So you are pursuing game dev as a hobby? What industry is your dayjob in?
  • jonas jonas:
    FAANG?
  • Jesus4Lyf Jesus4Lyf:
    Not quite FAANG, less pay for a less hours/stress. Yeah, game dev as a hobby.
  • jonas jonas:
    makes sense. Do we have a hobby game dev subforum to showcase some work?

    "hey tom_mai please do not archive anymore news" ----> Got it. What should we do with the "News Archive" subforum?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think leave it for real old news that cannot be sorted the reason we had it in the first place was a server issue that we do not have anymore. I don't want to get rid of the archive just not put anything in it for now until we figure it out more

    The side chat has nothing on the discord. it is not possible but the biggest thing on my wish list right now is a sidechat channel on the disord that hooks up to this...
