Description

Description:
Boundingbox.jpg
Returns a bounding box of given object in model coordinate space, adjusted according to destruction/animation of an object. This command is rather generous on the size estimation, for more precise coordinates use boundingBoxReal. With Arma 3 v1.92 an alternative syntax is added allowing to specify clipping type to be used, which in some cases could make bounding boxes even more precise. The output of both syntaxes was also extended to include bounding sphere diameter. One other command that provides such information is sizeOf, which is quite limited in its application.

Syntax

Syntax:
boundingBox object
Parameters:
object : Object
Return Value:
Array - An array with the extreme points of the model. Format [[xmin,ymin,zmin],[xmax,ymax,zmax],boundingSphereDiameter].

Alternative Syntax

Syntax:
clippingType boundingBox object
Parameters:
clippingType: Number - Clipping type could be:
  • 0 - ClipVisual (could significantly reduce the size of bounding boxes on buildings)
  • 1 - ClipShadow
  • 2 - ClipGeometry
  • 3 - ClipGeneral (Default, the same type that is used in main syntax)
object: Object
Return Value:
Array - An array with the extreme points of the model bounding box as well as bounding box sphere diameter.Format [[xmin,ymin,zmin],[xmax,ymax,zmax],boundingSphereDiameter].

Examples

Example 1:
_box = boundingBox _abrams
Example 2:
hint str (0 boundingBox cursorObject);
