Simulating a Ballistic Trajectory With C# in Unity

Luis Riera shared a thorough write-up explaining how to implement ballistic trajectory for projectiles in Unity.

If you're a Game Developer aiming to enhance the realism and authenticity of your in-game projectiles, here's a valuable guide that will help you achieve that goal. Developer and Software Engineer Luis Riera has recently published a comprehensive breakdown detailing the nuances of simulating a ballistic trajectory in a digital space, discussing the physics and math behind it, and demonstrating how to implement it using C# in Unity.

For those who may not know, C# serves as the principal programming language utilized by Unity for scripting and components, dictating how GameObjects behave and interact with one another to shape the gameplay experience. Unlike traditional programming, scripting in Unity doesn't require you to create the code that runs the application, doing it automatically and allowing you to focus on the gameplay in your scripts. 

In his write-up, Riera delved deeply into the mathematical equations behind the ballistic trajectory, explaining how they can help us calculate the required velocity to hit a target at a landing position from a launch position. After outlining the key kinematic equations, the author shared the necessary C# code for implementing this simulation in Unity, enabling the replication of a projectile's ballistic trajectory, whether it be a basketball, soccer ball, or any other in-game projectile.
