I want an event to occur if a number doesnt go decimal after its divided by 4

For example:
20/4 = 5 yes
19/4 = 4.75 no

But how?

I think his 'joke' was in response to how someone responded to him when he asked a "stupid question".

Does that justify his response? No. But don't be too hard on him.

The question he asked was completely valid. I don't think discouraging questions is a good way to keep people visiting.

Well tbh I didn't think his question was a very good one, but I didn't mind it and was just going to stay quiet about it. Then I saw his post in this thread. I felt as if there was more seriousness to it than sarcasm.

I can't remember what post it was, but it had something to do with extensions and whether or not it was possible to use a bunch of them all at the same time, and I think it was Cecil who in addition to answering his question, was very... angry at him, for posting a "stupid question without trying it yourself", so while even if silver wasn't being sarcastic or joking, I think his retaliation was probably in direct response to what had happened to him by someone else.

Again, not saying it's right... not defending him, probably could've been more mature about it, but that's probably his reasoning. In which case, I say let it go with a slap on the wrist and move on, aye?

"Mod" is short for the "Modulo" operator, which returns the Remainder of a number after division. This is commonly used in computer science and especially cryptography. Given A mod B = C, you can write it as: A = B*K + C, where K is some integer that divides out the most number of times B from A (not a decimal). So given 10 mod 5 = 0, you can write it as 10 = 5*2 + 0. Given 10 mod 4 = 2, you can write it as 10 = 4*2 + 2- here K is again 2, but there is a "Remainder" of 2, hence 10 mod 4 returns 2.

If you want to compare to the modulo, you need only write your expression as:


If A mod B = C, then (Actions)
You can write these in the expressions editor using the "compare to general values" function- you have to be aware that the object scoping is different for using a "compare to general values" expression as a direct reference from the object itself. In the former case, the action will always evaluate and always using the first (oldest) object of that class. For example code that says:

"If Alterable Value A of "Widget" mod 5 = 0"

would choose only the oldest widget. If no widgets existed, or none were currently scoped due to previous conditions, it will still evaluate- except it will default that the value A is 0. Meaning that expression would return true if no widgets existed at all, making it dangerous if you were not aware. And because it was general values, it will not alter the scope list. Meanwhile, any direct comparison from the object itself like:

"If Alterable Value A of "Widget" = 0"

Would only be true if there was a widget with value 0. Again, referring to the oldest widget scoped. It would be false if no widgets existed, and once its executed, only those widgets with value A = 0 in the current scoped are in the new scope list.

Sliver was just joking in reference to my defense of him when cecil attacked him on his very first post.
I said that being noobish is the way to go, its the future. So it's okay people don't get rilled up. It's just a joke.
Though i have noticed that most newcomers in this thriving community get cecilized on their first post, i did felt obliged to do something.

And pixelthief, thanks for the additional doze of confusion again.
Now that i know that Mod means Modulo I am totally going to Modulate stuff around with my Modulator.
