Description

Description:
Attempts to move given waypoint to a random position inside a circle with the given center and radius. The waypoint will be placed similar to "NONE" attribute in setVehiclePosition, even if the radius is 0, which means it could still be off center. In order to force waypoint to the exact position, similar to "CAN_COLLIDE" attribute, use a negative radius (see Example 2).
Groups:
Waypoints

Syntax

Parameters:
waypoint: Array - format Waypoint
center: Object or Array format PositionAGL or Array format PositionASL if radius is negative
radius: Number - random placement radius in meters. Set it to -1 and convert center to PositionASL for the exact center placement
Return Value:
Nothing

Examples

Example 1:
[_grp, 2] setWaypointPosition [position player, 0];
Example 2:
Exact placement using a negative radius and PositionASL:
_wp setWaypointPosition [getPosASL player, -1];

If you want AI to understand height of the waypoint, for example set waypoint at the top of Military Cargo Tower, use Example 2 with position in ASL format and -1 radius.
