distance to position3D (array) doesnt work with OFP, only objects Armed Assault: position3D (array) and object works

This returns the map distance, not the vector distance, [0,0,0] distance [0,0,1] can be >1 or <1, not exactly 1; unlike the vector math.

If a position in format [x, y, z] is provided for both arguments, distance also checks the z dimension as well. Ie: player distance [0,0,200] will return 200, if the player is at this position at ground/sea level.
