I'm working on developing my own engine, and at the moment, I have a line segment class that, given a starting x and y, and a ending x and y, it generates all the points based on a 0.02f unit size. What I mean is that it works like pixels. I only want a solid unit square to light up if the line approaches it in a way similar to Bresenham's Algorithm. It stores these points in a array using my point class (which consists of a x(float), y(float), z(float), and velocity(Vector) and returns this array. When I iterate through the array some of the points come back as null and I've tried checking for when one of the points it just created is null, and its able to give me valid x and y for the point (the reason why its only x and y, is because for now, im ignoring the z axis and am only trying to simulate a pixel screen on a 2d surface, so the z axis is ignored), yet the point still says its null. And its several points, and it changes each time (the line is randomly generated). LineSegment class is as follows:

Oh and if I code horribly, I apologize and would deeply appreciate tips and pointers. Thank you.
