Timer and visibility help
I have a small question hopefully someone here is able to help me with.
How to make a moving polygon visible and invisible with timer - visible at least 25% of the time and invisible for at least 25% of the time?
Any guidance and help would be greatly appreciated!

What about the other 50% of the time?
Are the times supposed to be random?

yeah, a random number should be used.

I still don't understand what happens in the other 50% of the time. visibility is a binary state. It is either true or false which means there is a 50/50 split. Not 25/25/50
Assuming a random number generator that creates an even distribution of numbers in a range, a way to get a 50/50 split is to set boundary in the middle of the range then there will 50% of the random numbers above that boundary and 50% below that boundary.
Different %s can be created by setting more boundaries. Say the range of random numbers is 0-99 and the desired split is 25/25/50 then set the boundaries at 25 and 50. Below 25 for 25%, 25-50 for 25% and above 50 for 50%
