[Request] getTowParent command
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The setTowParent command is very useful, but it lacks a companion getter.


getTowParent _vehicle

This could be used on any vehicle and would return an array, if the vehicle was currently at either end of a setTowParent command:

[_towedVehicle, _parentVehicle]

or an empty array if the vehicle is neither the towed vehicle nor the parent vehicle.

This command would make it more convenient to match vehicles to their intended tow counterparts, or to check if a vehicle is currently subject to control by another vehicle.

Thank you for requesting the feature.
Due to the current phase of Live Ops development in Arma 3, we cannot commit to any new features,
though we will try to consider them.

A towing vehicle doesn't know its towing anyone, and it also could be towing multiple, so there returning one towed vehicle wouldn't make sense.
getTowParent only works on the towed vehicle
