Visual House Position Module

This tool allows you to see where the positions inside a building are for easier mission editing.

All you have to do is place the module then:
  • Move near a house and the position markers will be created
  • The hint box displays:
    • - Closest city and distance to it
      - Your current position ASL
      - House Object ID
      - House Model Name
      - Total number of positions in the house
      - Number of the position on which you are currently standing

Using Action Menu to save your position:
  • While standing on the position you want, use the action menu to 'Save Position'.
  • The information you see inthe hint box is then copied to the clipboard. Paste it into something before you save another position.

Included is GZL_fncGetHouse.sqf script that has this function:
  • This function takes the name of a city/town, a house model number and the distance from the house to the city center and returns the house object for use in scripting.
  • Use the code in your own mission to retrieve the house for use in your scripts using the data provided by VHP as parameters for the function.

To use the Init. info for placing units or weapons:
    - Place the unit or object on the map near the building in which you want to place it.
    - Preview the map and find your building position.
    - Use the action menu and select Save Init Code.
    - Suspend the preview and double click the unit you just placed.
    - Put your cursor in the Initialization box and hit ctrl-v on your keyboard.

As we always advice use mod folders to keep your mods organized and to prevent errors in the future.
