Smoothing Out the movement To create a soft, gliding impact whereas the send follows the finger, we’ll are looking to replace the ship’s place to maneuver towards the finger through the years, instead of leap correct to the finger’s coordinates. as the ‑update: strategy gets the worth of Sprite Kit’s clock within the currentTime parameter, we will use that to calculate how a ways the send may still stream via maintaining a tally of the time among frames. First, we’ll upload a brand new estate to the category extension of the RCWMyScene item. We’ll use this to list the final time we up-to-date the body. 01-SpriteIntro/step05/SpaceRun/RCWMyScene. m​ ​@interface​ RCWMyScene () ​ ​@property​ (nonatomic, susceptible) UITouch *shipTouch; * ​@property​ (nonatomic) NSTimeInterval lastUpdateTime; ​ ​@end​ Then, within the ‑update: approach, we’ll subtract the price of that estate to calculate the time delta because the final body. 01-SpriteIntro/step05/SpaceRun/RCWMyScene. m​ - (​void​)update:(NSTimeInterval)currentTime ​ { ​  ​if​ (self. lastUpdateTime == zero) { ​  self. lastUpdateTime = currentTime; ​  } ​  NSTimeInterval timeDelta = currentTime - self. lastUpdateTime; ​  ​  ​if​ (self. shipTouch) { ​  [self moveShipTowardPoint:[self. shipTouch locationInNode:self] ​  byTimeDelta:timeDelta]; ​  } ​  self. lastUpdateTime = currentTime; ​ } We’re checking to work out even if the lastUpdateTime estate is 0 first, simply because whether it is, that implies this is often the 1st body rendered of this scene. we have to initialize this estate ahead of we will be able to get significant time-delta calculations, yet we don’t be aware of what to initialize it to till the 1st time we're referred to as. subsequent, we calculate the timeDelta worth by means of subtracting the currentTime parameter from the lastUpdateTime estate. Then, if the shipTouch estate holds a slightly item, we name a brand new option to stream the send based on the contact aspect by means of how a lot time has handed. We’re asking the UITouch item itself to provide us the coordinate of the contact in the scene’s neighborhood coordinate method. finally the paintings is finished, we set the lastUpdateTime estate to currentTime so we're able to calculate the time distinction of the subsequent body. Let’s write the ‑moveShipTowardPoint:byTimeDelta: way to nudge the send through the right volume for this body. 01-SpriteIntro/step05/SpaceRun/RCWMyScene. m​ - (​void​)moveShipTowardPoint:(CGPoint)point byTimeDelta:(NSTimeInterval)timeDelta ​ { ​  CGFloat shipSpeed = a hundred thirty; ​// issues in keeping with moment​ ​  SKNode *ship = [self childNodeWithName:@​"ship"​]; ​  CGFloat distanceLeft = sqrt(pow(ship. place. x - aspect. x, 2) + ​  pow(ship. place. y - element. y, 2)); ​  ​if​ (distanceLeft > four) { ​  CGFloat distanceToTravel = timeDelta * shipSpeed; ​  CGFloat attitude = atan2(point. y - send. place. y, ​  aspect. x - send. place. x); ​  CGFloat yOffset = distanceToTravel * sin(angle); ​  CGFloat xOffset = distanceToTravel * cos(angle); ​  send. place = CGPointMake(ship. place. x + xOffset, ​  send. place. y + yOffset); ​  } ​ } Yikes!
