rounding to whole numbers

Default rounding to whole numbers - 04-30-2009, 02:40 PM

in my world i have a skateboard that is both rolling and spinning variable amounts depending on where you set the feet on them. I'm looking for a way to make it so that when the board lands (finishes its spin) it will know whether or not the trick was landed.
also, since alice is working with long decimal numbers here, it will need to approximate within a certain range whether the board has spun enough or not.

in pseudo:

if (board's amount rolled) == (something close to whole number):
run trick landed, evaluate trick, etc
run trick failed

is it possible to manipulate numbers like that in alice?

Heres what you could do

roll=randomNumber(minimum=roll)(maximum=roll)(inte gerOnly=true)

that should turn any floating decimal into an integer. as to rounding, im not sure how it will work, all i know is that it will be an integer
