number: the speed of the vector (in % of c)
Returns velVector: returns the new velocity vector
Category system, vector operator
Description A useful wrapper function for other velocity operator functions that require messy velVector arguments.


(objSetVel gPlayerShip (sysVectorPolarVelocity (shpGetDirection gPlayerShip) 50))

Will cause the playership to scream forward at 50% lightspeed. A necessary function if you are using objIncVel or objSetVel which take velVectors as their velocity arguments.
