A Gaussian curve, allowing for the modification of the intensity of an effect

Gaussian, within the context of HeroEngine, is the name of some math functions, and a term for a graphics technique, using mathematics and probability as developed by Carl Friedrich Gauss. "Gaussian" is one of the options that can be used in many dropdown menus, such as for the intensity of an effect.

Gaussian parameters on effects

When choosing a Gaussian Parameter syntax, this means to provide a random number within the specified range, with the given median and variation.

Gaussian functions

Gaussian(min as float, max as float, standardDeviation as float, median as float) as float

GaussianDeterministic(min as float, max as float, standardDeviation as float, median as float) as float

These functions can be used to generate random numbers with a Gaussian distribution, though simpler functions are usually sufficient. See Random number generation.
