I was able to work around this bug by using nearestTerrainObjects [[10655.9,12201.3,1.49722], ["HIDE"], 5] instead.

I’m not sure the versions are correct, here is screenshot in 2.08 https://feedback.bistudio.com/T167429#2354350

The versions I indicated are correct; their bug report is what's incorrect. My ATM locator script they referenced uses allMissionObjects for editor ATMs, but nearestObjects for terrain ATMs. Here's the script with the workaround: https://github.com/A3Wasteland/ArmA3_Wasteland.Altis/commit/9cc182c6aff0dfa2f9f28925ce9d9ac9d2f60339

The problem first appeared in the 2.10 hotfix released earlier this week, so it is most likely a side effect of the T167313 bugfix.

rev 149916

possible hotfix. Dont use nearestObjects over long distances as objects might not exist that far
