Distance between two objects
Hi!

Is there any function in Esenthel which count distance between two objects? In 3D.

RE: Distance between two objects
ehh..
i have 2 Flt values.
-0.555 and -0.666
so this gives me strange things.

Flt dist = Dist(-0.555,-0.666);
if (dist>0.7){
//This runs here
//it returns 0.867
}

Dist flt x flt y works as calculating the distance from 0,0 point to x,y point

What you want is

Abs(x-y)

RE: Distance between two objects
okay.. i couldnt figure this thing out either..
im trying to figure out if an object is in front of another object.

Vec rstart = enem->pos(); //enem pos
Vec rend = playa->pos()-rstart; //direction the player is from enem

i tried this:
Flt r = rend.z;
Flt m = enem->matrix().z.z;
Flt dist=Abs(r-m);

this did not do the trick.. i guess im a bit off base here.. could you point me to the right direction here.
hmm.. i might have this working now... not sure tho grin

Well you can use this:

PHP Code:
if(AbsAngleBetween(Plr.pos()-head.pos,head.dir)<=DegToRad(50)) 
plr = Players[0]
head = enemy

There is always evil somewhere, you just have to look for it properly.

I've noticed that the DegToRad(50) only goes one way, to get the other way I needed DegToRage(-50) as well. : o

RE: Distance between two objects
^^ You must be using AngleBetween, not AbsAngleBetween.
