comment Bridge made out of blocks at an angle
This is missing too much detail to be useful. What angle is "theta"? The sine and cosine have both a range of [-1,1], which would mean the values assigned to x and y hardly change at all.

Code-formatted the math to distinguish it from surroundings. Some grammar.

comment What scoring system should I use in my game?
We can't really tell you what game you should be making, since it's pretty personal. Is there something specific and objective about the decision of "what scoring system should I use use" that you're stuck on?

Did you mean you had the same problem and solved it with the described method? (It's a bit unclear.)

comment How do I position a cylinder between 2 points?
Don't worry; it happens to the best of us. :) If you like, we could edit this to "How do I position a cylinder between 2 points?" and add your solution as an answer. That would be useful for future readers.

comment How do I position a cylinder between 2 points?
"Mouse codes"? Do you mean coordinates? I'm even more confused now. Could you maybe draw it?

comment How do I position a cylinder between 2 points?
In the conditionals for Input.GetMouseButton(0) and .GetMouseButtonDown(0), switch occurrences of pos1 and pos2. That way, once control gets to the third conditional (with pos2 != pos1), the whole thing should be calculated as inverted. (I'm a bit confused why you'd want to do this though. The cylinder will look the same when rotated, unless you've made it non-symmetrical with textures or such.)

comment How do I position a cylinder between 2 points?
Are you using the code from the answer? Why not just change what gets assigned to pos1 and pos2?
