Moving to mouse point the correct equation


Recommended Posts

I feel like this is an issue that must have been solved and is a simple algorithm, but I'm struggling to figure it out myself..


The problem I'm having is that if I click on the ground (so that the mesh moves towards it). If the destination point is not perfectly diagonal or straight, then the x axis or the z axis is reached first.

It kind of goes diagonally for a bit before going straight for the rest of the route.

The code is really simple, And my feeling is the movement logic needs improving. I'm essentially applying a force of 1 or -1 on each axis depending on where the mesh is currently until it reaches its point.

Is there a better way to do this?
