This command is definatlely not broken, at least not in A3 1.42. It functions exactly as the description says it does. The reason why the Z value is elevated is because it represents the units torso. When the unit is prone and spotted, the Z value is much less. Here you can see a perfectly working example of this command Talk:getHideFrom#Operation Script Sample
