  net.WriteNormal( Vector normal )

Description

Writes a normalized/direction vector ( Vector with length of 1 ) to the net message.

This function uses less bandwidth compared to net.WriteVector and will not send vectors with length of > 1 properly.

Arguments

1 Vector normal
The normalized/direction vector to be send.

Example

Showcases the difference between this function and net.WriteVector.

if ( SERVER ) then util.AddNetworkString( "test1" ) util.AddNetworkString( "test2" ) timer.Simple( 1, function() net.Start( "test1" ) net.WriteVector( Vector( 1.23456789, 2.3456789, 3.456789 ) ) net.Broadcast() net.Start( "test2" ) net.WriteNormal( Vector( 1.23456789, 2.3456789, 3.456789 ) ) net.Broadcast() net.Start( "test2" ) net.WriteNormal( Vector( 1.23456789, 2.3456789, 3.456789 ):GetNormalized() ) net.Broadcast() net.Start( "test2" ) net.WriteNormal( Vector( 0.5, -0.5, 0.23 ) ) net.Broadcast() end ) else net.Receive( "test1", function( ... ) print( ... ) print( net.ReadVector() ) end ) net.Receive( "test2", function( ... ) print( ... ) print( net.ReadNormal() ) end ) end
