What's the max number I can set in Texture.OffsetStudsU?

I’m simulating an arrow movement by changing the Texture.OffsetStudsU property.

Although Texture.OffsetStudsU says that this property number is of type float, when I set a value too high, the texture gets scrambled.

For example, when OffsetStudsU is set to 100,000, it’s ok:

But if I change this value to 10,000,000:

How to avoid this?

Why do you need this? Can’t you wrap the texture around at the width of the part?

I’m simulating the arrow movement, an animation (BindToRenderStep).
So I need to gradually increase the Texture.OffsetStudsU to get this effect.

But once you hit the length of the texture, you can wrap it around to 0. Numbers have limits.

I did not understand. Could you show a code for this?
Currently, for each render step, I make this:

Part.Texture.OffsetStudsU += 0.01
if Part.Texture.OffsetStudsU > 100000 then 
	Part.Texture.OffsetStudsU = 0 
end

You can use modulus to wrap the offset back once you reach the tile width.

Part.Texture.OffsetStudsU += 0.01
Part.Texture.OffsetStudsU = Part.Texture.OffsetStudsU % Part.Texture.StudsPerTileU

Genius. Thank you!
