math is a core aspect of computer science and programming to begin with, so it is no surprise that it has extensive amounts of importance to a game developer. This tag is for questions about the math needed to produce some result in your game. It can be complete formulae and algorithms, or it could just be the math for a particular step in the process. Examples of math questions include:
- Create a formula for damage given different present variables
- Determine the change in momentum for two objects after a collision
- Find the largest parabolic distance for a projectile path
- Produce specific beautiful, scintillating patterns of colorful bullet death
And much more! It also can apply to questions seeking a mathematical explanation for bizarre behavior.
For questions specifically about using a complete algorithm to achieve a specific result, one can also use algorithm.
