Notes

  • Be careful using random numbers in multiplayer, each client will come up with a different result. See multiplayer tutorials for more general information about locality.
  • The number returned is unlikely to be a whole number. To return a whole number combine random and floor e.g. x=floor(random 5) will return either 0,1,2,3 or 4 with equal likelihood.
