[Feature Request] New LOD type for lineIntersectsSurfaces command: "ROADWAY"
New, NormalPublic

Description

As you know, units typically stand on the roadWay LOD, and if it doesn't exist, they stand on the GEOM LOD. So a command like this:
lineIntersectsSurfaces [top, bottom, objNull, objNull, true, 1, "ROADWAY", "GEOM"]
can give the next surface where you can stand on.

It is very useful when you want to place something on top of another object.

Probably not happening, lineIntersectSurfaces uses engine method that doesn't have provision for RoadWay LOD, this would require deep changes so most likely won't happen at this stage.

You might want to take a look at the getPos command, because it can detect the ROADWAY LOD.
