Default Script to randomize a property.

Hi,
does anyone know a script that can randomize a given property, i.e. the initial spin of a rigid body?

I dont know about ridid bodies but a while ago I did a tutorial and they used Sprites and in the properties they were using Per Particle Array Attribues to do random things...

so one of the things they did there was give each sprite a random twist... the code was:
ParticleShape1.spriteTwistPP = rand(360)
I dont know how this is going to help you though...

Dude! hehe...

If you look at the very 1st of the 3 threads you made regarding this, I answered that for you with an expression.

PS, For future reference, Dynamics and Special Effects would be the best place for posts like this

Here is my answer for ya:
