I want to get a Vector containing a coordinate. I know my beginning coordinates, angle and distance. So far I've tried doing:
Vector2 pos = new Vector2(beginningX, beginningY).add(distance, distance).rotate(angle);
0
Vector2 pos = new Vector2(beginningX, beginningY).add(distance, 0).rotate(angle);
distance
x
I'd say you're doing it wrong: you need to rotate the distance vector and add it to the position vector:
Vector2 pos = new Vector2(beginningX, beginningY).add(new Vector2(distance, 0).rotate(angle) );
You might want to read up on vector math but basically it amounts to this (if I correctly understood what you're trying to do):
If you rotate a vector you're always rotating around point 0/0. Thus you'll want to create a vector that covers the distance from 0/0 to your distance on the xaxis:
0>d
Now you rotate that vector by some angle:
d
/

0
Then you offset that vector by your starting point, i.e. you add the two vectors (for simplicity I assume your starting point lies on the yaxis):
d
/
/
/
/
/
s
