- This command will hide a unit, but he will still shoot enemies. Unit will be invisible, but weapon muzzle are visible.
- Use MP framework to activate this comand on all players from server or any other maschine
_nic = [nil, mantohide, "per", rHideObject, true ] call RE; //In A3 use hideObjectGlobal instead.
- you can use code as in example 2, where true = ON and false = OFF, if using it like in example 1, you can only turn it ON
- using this locally causes the player/object disappear only locally; has to be executed serverside if used in MP. Hidden Vehicles still emit smoke/rotor blade dust and (probably) still emit engine sounds. Usefull for creating objects the map-creator doesn't want to be seen, like Units that protect a certain Area (like a safe-zone) against teamkillers or enemy units.
- The above comment is partially incorrect, if the effects of the command are local then it must be executed in every machine so it has global effect. If it is run only on the server machine, it will only be hidden on the server, while clients still see it.

- When used on player, it only has an effect on third person mode. First person LOD is still visible. (A3 Dev 1.33)

- hideObject and hideObjectGlobal disable object collision in addition to rendering. A3 1.45.131175 (tested by hiding buildings and running through, driving through, flying through, and shooting through where the building used to be)

Sometimes it´s easier to teleport the object about 100m under the ground (also JiP Support):
_obj setPosATL [getPosATL _obj select 0, getPosATL _obj select 1, (getPosATL _obj select 2)-100];And to unhide:
_obj setPosATL [getPosATL _obj select 0, getPosATL _obj select 1, (getPosATL _obj select 2)+100];
