Float: Find closest multiple of [SOLVED]
« on: April 09, 2013, 09:18:55 PM »
Hey,

Wondering if it would be possible to have an action to test a float for the closest multiple of another float.
For example, you retrieve the Y rotation of a game object, then find the closest multiple of 90, you could tell it to look towards up down left or right, if that makes sense.

Many thanks in advance,
Mark.

Hi,

 try this:

it's a modulo operator action, I think this is what you want:
