Have you ever wanted to create a game where the character or tank or whatever can shoot something, and instead of just drawing a straight line, it took into acount gravity(or none), angle(direction), power/speed(velocity) then calculated it and created a curve upon which the object of your choice, like a sprite or shape or button, or character.. ANYTHING, followed? Like in the old favorite scorched earth. Those tanks would shoot a curved path. THIS DOES EXACTLY THAT. BUT ALL IN A MODULE! so you dont have to worry about anthing. every aspect of this code is DOCUMENTED. So that you understand every bit. At least 2 sentences per action!

Its all in a module, so you just have to give an angle, speed,and the amount of time or distance for the bomb or whatever to go! The potential of this is limitless! Time bombs! Bullets. Creatures jumping! Skydiving! Graphing!
