public static method MoveTowards(current: float, target: float, maxDelta: float): float;
public static float MoveTowards(float current, float target, float maxDelta);


currentThe current value.
targetThe value to move towards.
maxDeltaThe maximum change that should be applied to the value.


Moves a value current towards target.

This is essentially the same as Mathf.Lerp but instead the function will ensure that the speed never exceeds maxDelta. Negative values of maxDelta pushes the value away from target.

var currStrength: float;
var maxStrength: float;
var recoveryRate: float;

function Update() { currStrength = Mathf.MoveTowards(currStrength, maxStrength, recoveryRate * Time.deltaTime); }
