Applies impulse force to unit or given PhysX object at given position.
For more information see NVIDIA docs.
Object Manipulation


object addForce [force, position, setUnconscious]
object: Object - PhysX object or Arma 3 logo black.png2.04LALocal unit, in which case the unit must be local and will be set unconscious
force: Array - in format [x,y,z], force vector in world space; force is expressed in Newton
position: Array - in format [x,y,z], in object's relative position
since Arma 3 logo black.png2.18
setUnconscious: Boolean - (Optional, default true) only applies to "CAManBase" object; set to false to keep the person conscious
Return Value:


Example 1:
Apply force [0,1000,0] defined in world space (not factoring object actual positioning) to object position [1,0,0]:
_object addForce [[0,1000,0], [1,0,0]];
Example 2:
Apply force [0,1000,0] defined in model space (relative to object) to object position [1,0,0]:
_object addForce [_object vectorModelToWorld [0,1000,0], [1,0,0]];
Example 3:
Can be used on units since Arma 3 v2.04:
if (local bob) then { 0 spawn { bob addForce [bob vectorModelToWorld [0,-200,0], bob selectionPosition "rightfoot"]; sleep 5; bob setUnconscious false; }; };
Example 4:
player addForce [player vectorModelToWorld [0, -1, 0], [0, 1, 0], false]; // not unconscious
