Notes

talkingtoaj
getPos vs getRelPos: getRelPos operates similarly to getPos except in getRelPos the direction is calculated 'relative' to the current object direction whereas getPos's direction is from North. Thus while getPos can take a position array as it's starting point, getRelPos requires an object with its own azithmus heading.
