[LIB] Get Object Size

Post by Gazz » Sat, 23. Aug 08, 14:12

Returns the object size of
  • any in sector object
    (okay, so that part was easy =)
  • any OOS ship or station
  • any ship or station waretype code (the "wares" in a shipyard)
    Yes, that means it's not even required to have an actually existing ship to get it's size.
There is only 1 argument. Just put any object or ship/station type in.

Returns null if the argument did not fit any of the above categories.

Note that object size in X3 is given as radius = half the objects max dimension.
Makes it easy to find the minimum distance between 2 objects by simply adding their sizes.

Extremely fast and resource-friendly handling of repeated requests.
Does not require any kind of setup or preparation phase.

There is no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
