QuestionHow to determine the next x,y coordinate for a tank in a 2-D game... PinmemberEdmundisme18-Jun-08 8:35 
Hello,
 
I'm putting together a Silverlight 2 demo application. It is going to be a simple 2-D tank game where you can use the arrow keys to rotate and move the tank. The tank can point in any direction (360 possible directions, right?). I've written the code to rotate the tank, but I'm not sure where to begin regarding moving the tank. How can I take the angle of the tank (say, 156 degrees for example) and use that to determine the next x,y position of the tank when it moves forward?
 
I'm sure there must be a simple equation for this, but I don't know what it would be called or even how to google this problem.
 
Any ideas?
 
Thanks,
 
Ian
