Game:
Operation Flashpoint
Version:
1.00

Description

Description:
Returns the nearest object of given type to given position within a sphere. Hardcoded radius is 50 meters. Unlike with nearestObjects, where distance is measured in 2D space, nearestObject will be closest object in 3D space.

If object class type is used, any object derived from the type is found as well (In OFP however, only objects with exactly the type given are found). If object ID passed as an argument (as in example 2) the search range is unlimited.

Syntax

Syntax:
nearestObject [position, type]
Parameters:
[position, type]: Array
position: Position3D or Position2D or Object - position to start search at
type: String - type of object (see typeOf, class type)
Return Value:
Object - Nearest object, objNull otherwise

Alternative Syntax

Syntax:
nearestObject position
Parameters:
position: Position3D or Position2D or Object - position to start search at
Return Value:
Object - Nearest object, objNull otherwise

Alternative Syntax 2

Syntax:
position nearestObject type
Parameters:
position: Position3D or Position2D - position to start search at
type: String - type of object (see typeOf, class type)
Return Value:
Object - Nearest object, objNull otherwise

Alternative Syntax 3

Syntax:
position nearestObject id
Parameters:
position: Position3D or Position2D - position to start search at
id: Number - object Visitor id
Return Value:
Object - Nearest object, objNull otherwise

Examples

Example 1:
_nObject = nearestObject [2345,6789]; _nObject = nearestObject [player, "StreetLamp"];
Example 2:
Return the object with ID 123456:_nObject = [0,0,0] nearestObject 123456;
Example 3:
_nObject = getPos player nearestObject "StreetLamp";
Example 4:
Return the nearest object with (typeOf _nObject == "#XXXX") -> #mark, #slop, etc. Unlimited search range:_nObject = _position nearestObject -1; Return the nearest object with (typeOf _nObject != ""). Search range is 50m: _nObject = nearestObject _position;
Example 5:
_blood = nearestObject [player, "#slop"]; _step = nearestObject [player, "#mark"]; _track = nearestObject [player, "#track"]; _crater = nearestObject [player, "#crater"];
