Best approach to moving mesh quickly along a fixed path


Recommended Posts

Good day

I'm working on a small multiplayer game and I've bumped into a problem.

I'd like to ask the community if you have any ideas about moving a mesh along a well understood line (xyz --> xyz) at a particular speed?


At the moment I'm using a 'hacky solution'. 



mesh.position.x += Math.sin(this.sBullet.point.rotation) * this.sBullet.speed * 3
mesh.position.z += Math.cos(this.sBullet.point.rotation) * this.sBullet.speed * 3

I've noticed some lag when there are many bullets flying around.

It occurred to me, that with the path and speed being static at the point of the bullet being instantiated I might be able to "set it up and let it go".


May I ask if anyone has come across a super efficient way to hand this over to Babylon or a lower level instead of using a timer and increment it every couple ms in JS?
