Does anything that talks about what the UP, DOWN, RIGHT, in vectors two and three mean?
I couldn’t find anything in the docks and is there a video on it? also can having the wrong one effect how a script would work?
If you can help big thanks!

These are just CONSTANTS in the Vector3 class. Really, you can think of them as “shortcuts” to commonly used vectors.

For example:

Vector3.UP is really just Vector3(0, 1, 0).

You can see the details in the CONSTANTS section of the Vector3 docs here:

And, yes, using the “wrong one” could certainly make a script not work as intended.
