float

A built-in type for floating point numbers.

Description

The float built-in type is a 64-bit double-precision floating-point number, equivalent to double in C++. This type has 14 reliable decimal digits of precision. The maximum value of float is approximately 1.79769e308, and the minimum is approximately -1.79769e308.

Many methods and properties in the engine use 32-bit single-precision floating-point numbers instead, equivalent to float in C++, which have 6 reliable decimal digits of precision. For data structures such as Vector2 and Vector3, Godot uses 32-bit floating-point numbers by default, but it can be changed to use 64-bit doubles if Godot is compiled with the precision=double option.

Math done using the float type is not guaranteed to be exact and will often result in small errors. You should usually use the @GlobalScope.is_equal_approx and @GlobalScope.is_zero_approx methods instead of == to compare float values for equality.

Constructor Descriptions

float float ( )

Constructs a default-initialized float set to 0.0.


float float ( float from )

Constructs a float as a copy of the given float.


float float ( String from )

Converts a String to a float, following the same rules as String.to_float.


float float ( bool from )

Cast a bool value to a floating-point value, float(true) will be equal to 1.0 and float(false) will be equal to 0.0.


float float ( int from )

Cast an int value to a floating-point value, float(1) will be equal to 1.0.


Operator Descriptions

bool operator != ( float right )

Returns true if two floats are different from each other.

Note: @GDScript.NAN doesn't behave the same as other numbers. Therefore, the results from this operator may not be accurate if NaNs are included.


bool operator != ( int right )

Returns true if the integer has different value than the float.


Color operator * ( Color right )

Multiplies each component of the Color, including the alpha, by the given float.

print(1.5 * Color(0.5, 0.5, 0.5)) # Prints "(0.75, 0.75, 0.75, 1.5)"

Quaternion operator * ( Quaternion right )

Multiplies each component of the Quaternion by the given float. This operation is not meaningful on its own, but it can be used as a part of a larger expression.


Vector2 operator * ( Vector2 right )

Multiplies each component of the Vector2 by the given float.

print(2.5 * Vector2(1, 3)) # Prints "(2.5, 7.5)"

Vector2 operator * ( Vector2i right )

Multiplies each component of the Vector2i by the given float. Returns a Vector2.

print(0.9 * Vector2i(10, 15)) # Prints "(9, 13.5)"

Vector3 operator * ( Vector3 right )

Multiplies each component of the Vector3 by the given float.


Vector3 operator * ( Vector3i right )

Multiplies each component of the Vector3i by the given float. Returns a Vector3.

print(0.9 * Vector3i(10, 15, 20)) # Prints "(9, 13.5, 18)"

Vector4 operator * ( Vector4 right )

Multiplies each component of the Vector4 by the given float.


Vector4 operator * ( Vector4i right )
