From left to right:
  1. random radius
  2. random position in a circle
  3. Gaussian normal distribution

Originally from Commy2's forum post, also fully translated on Dedmen's sqf.ovh post.


Arma 3

  • object getPos [distance, direction] has been introduced in Arma 3 logo black.png1.56
  • Gaussian random [min, mid, max] has been introduced in Arma 3 logo black.png1.56
private _center = getPosATL player;					// disc center definition
private _radius = 50;								// radius definition

// random radius
private _angle = random 360;						// angle definition (0..360)
private _distance = random _radius;					// distance from the center definition (0..radius)
private _position = _center getPos [_distance, _angle];

// random position
private _angle = random 360;						// angle definition (0..360)

private _angleHalf = random 180;
private _randomGauss = random [-1, 0, 1];
private _distance = _radius * _randomGauss;

Arma 2

// random radius

Armed Assault / Operation Flashpoint: Resistance

private ["_center", "_radius", "_angle", "_distance", "_offset", "_position"];	// private definitions

Operation Flashpoint

This is an SQS Syntax example.
private ["_center", "_radius", "_angle", "_distance", "_offset", "_position"]	// private definitions
_center = getPos player		// disc center definition
_radius = 50				// radius definition

// random radius
_angle = random 360
_distance = random _radius
_offset = [sin _angle * _distance, cos _angle * _distance]
_position = [(_center select 0) + (_offset select 0), (_center select 1) + (_offset select 1)]

// random position
_angle = random 360
_distance = _radius * sqrt random 1
_offset = [sin _angle * _distance, cos _angle * _distance, 0]
_position = [(_center select 0) + (_offset select 0), (_center select 1) + (_offset select 1)]
