Random real value from 0 to x.

Comments

Be careful using random numbers in multiplayer, each client will come up with something different.

See multiplayer tutorials for more general information about locality.


The number returned is unlikely to be a whole number (e.g. 1, 4, 76, etc.).

To return a whole number combine random and mod.
