What does the "f" in 0.0f mean when you write out the code movement = new Vector3 (moveHorizontal, 0.0f, moveVertical);

I realize that we are keeping movement on the y axis at 0, but what does the f mean?

Hi Justin Molyneaux,

Great question! The "f" stands for float, meaning that it's a floating point value (sometimes called a decimal value in math).
