nearestObjects not work with "Final" unit classes (2.10)
Feedback, NormalPublic


nearestObjects not work with "Final" unit classes, agents or not-agents (Arma 3 version 2.10).

For example, the code:

nearestObjects [player,[typeOf player],10]

Returns a empty array [].

Windows 10 x64
Steps To Reproduce

Open Arma 3 2.10
Run Eden Editor
Place a unit on the map
Start the mission

nearestObjects [player,[typeOf player],10]

It will return an empty array [], but should return an array with the player.

I tested in 2.11.149816 and it's not fixed, still have the problem.

I ran your repro it returns player object

No mods, map Altis, unit "B_Soldier_A_F".

Got it. Try with default rifleman

That's weird. It works for me.

Does it happen at a particular coordinate (or on a specific terrain) @keel ?

its fine, reproed, but it is weird indeed

Should be fixed in rev.149837

With Default Rifleman ("Rifleman" in EDEN) it works:

It work or not work based if the Class is a base for another class or not:

Here a unit class that is a base for another classes ("C_man_p_shorts_1_F"):
Here a unit class that is not a base for another classes ("C_man_p_shorts_1_F_afro"):

Waiting for rev.149837 to test.
