Notes

ArmA Ver 1.02: getPos select 2 often returns the vertical position above ground level, but for stacked object, it returns the vertical position above the object beneath it. The same problem exists for getPosASL. There was a discussion thread in the BIS forums which suggested the use of the commands worldToModel or modelToWorld instead to get around this issue where an absolute verticle position is required.
