Description

Description:
Adds a point guarded by the given side (scripted way of adding equivalent of "GUARDED BY" trigger in Editor). A closest AI group in the given side with assigned "GUARD" waypoint will attempt to secure this guard point. The actual guarded position is determined via the following rules:
  • Given "position" is always considered. It could be Object, Group, Position2D or Position3D. In every case, z coordinate will be ignored and point will be placed on nearest surface.
  • If "objectMapID" is not negative, the position of the object with the given ID is used (Overrides "position"). -1 to ignore this argument. z of the object position will be intact.
  • If the given "vehicle" is valid, the position of the vehicle is extracted and guarded (Overrides both "position" and "objectMapID"). objNull to ignore. z of the vehicle position will be intact.
For use with "GUARD" waypoint. How does "GUARD" waypoint work: Waypoint:Guard
