Great system, forced me to learn vjass too.
Anyways I'm having trouble with one thing that I just can't figure out. I want it to be like a "thrown" bouncy ball from a spell, and the velocity is calculated in XYZ, so how would I make the velocity take the ball towards the target? I'm also trying to make it so any kind of collision will make it bounce, like trees and stuff, but it's tough and will take time. I'm using items (like vexorian did I think) to check it if you are wondering, just the actual Z height of different models is what makes it difficult. Edit: Okay figured it out. I just did...well this in the creation part (and many other things, like making the trigger into a spell): JASS: static method create takes nothing returns bouncyBall local bouncyBall b = bouncyBall.allocate() local location l = GetSpellTargetLoc() local location l2 = GetUnitLoc(GetTriggerUnit()) local location l3 = PolarProjectionBJ(l2, 600, AngleBetweenPoints(l2, l)) set b.position = vector.create(GetUnitX(GetTriggerUnit()),GetUnitY(GetTriggerUnit()),75.0) //this is the thrower // give the ball a starting velocity set b.velocity = vector.create((GetLocationX(l3)  GetLocationX(l2))*MOVE_PERIOD,(GetLocationY(l3)  GetLocationY(l2))*MOVE_PERIOD,600.0*MOVE_PERIOD) set b.ball = CreateUnit(GetOwningPlayer(GetTriggerUnit()), 'ewsp', 0.0,0.0,0.0) // make it possible to change the unit's flyheight call UnitAddAbility(b.ball, 'Amrf') call UnitRemoveAbility(b.ball, 'Amrf') set balls[ballNum]=b set b.spot=ballNum set balls[ballNum].duration = 0 set ballNum=ballNum+1 call RemoveLocation(l) set l = null call RemoveLocation(l2) set l2 = null call RemoveLocation(l3) set l3 = null return b endmethod Last edited by ClichesAreSt00pid : 06072008 at 11:45 PM.

New Functions for Units
Hey,
I've had to add some new methods to your atruct, because i neede them! :D They all improve working with units and vectors! they are easey to use, and i think, that they're useful! JASS: library VectorLib // Credits: // ; to Waterknight for UnitZ funcs function GetFloorHeight takes real x, real y returns real local location whichUnitLocation = Location( x, y ) local real z =

Those extra methods you have there don't really fit in my opinion since doing stuff with actual units is outside the scope of this system, that's something you should build on top of the system not in it, also your GetFloorHeight function is obsolete, you also do some odd things in other functions as well, it's all rather unoptimised for a lowlevel system and we don't want to encourage people to code like that.
__________________So I'm not adding those functions and methods to my first post, but thanks for the suggestions anyway.

I have a request for an operation which I use quite often:
JASS: method addScaled takes vector addend, real scale returns nothing set this.x=this.x+addend.x*scale set this.y=this.y+addend.y*scale set this.z=this.z+addend.z*scale endmethod Its nice to have a function like this if you use vectors for movement as you always need nomething like this: JASS: call position.addScaled(velocity, TimedLoop_PERIOD) It would be nice if you could add this ;)

Why don't you have GetXyDistance and GetXyzDistance in the vector library? I think that is important.

GetXyzDistance could be done by subtracting one of the vectors from the other, and getting the length of the resulting vector. GetXyDistance would be done the same way, but you would have to make sure the two vectors have the same zcomponent first.

I still don't get it.

JASS: function Distance takes vector a, vector b, boolean z returns real local vector d = vector.difference(b,a) local real r if not z then set d.z = 0.0 endif set r = d.getLength() call d.destroy() return r endfunction Or a more efficient version: JASS: function Distance takes vector a, vector b, boolean z returns real if z then return SquareRoot(Pow(b.xa.x,2)+Pow(b.ya.y,2)+Pow(b.za.z,2)) else return SquareRoot(Pow(b.xa.x,2)+Pow(b.ya.y,2)) endif endfunction Last edited by Anitarf : 04122010 at 12:54 PM.

May I suggest that you include normalizing? Unit vectors can be quite useful.

Is there a way to rotate a vector considering the Z value
with the rotation? I suspect not in this library, based on that it's only rotating the X and Y. I wonder what kind of complexity we'd deal with if we had to factor in all three dimensions into the equations. I'm also unsure of what the purpose of "terrainNormal" is. It takes four corners into consideration but what if the center is a bit indented/raised offset from the rest? Last edited by Bribe : 07122011 at 12:20 PM.
