[Feature Request] insideBuilding -> on ladders, balconies, rooftops
New, NormalPublic

Description

The new insideBuilding has been needed for a very long time! Great addition! Unfortunately, it returns 0 also when "Inside the building enevelope", but on external surfaces such as a rooftop.

I'd like to suggest to expand that function, or add new ones with the following purpose:

Being able recognize whether a

  • INPUT: a person or position

is

  • inside a room
  • on a balcony or on a rooftop
  • on a ladder

object inOrOnBuilding -> [int whereAmI, {optional: which ladder from building cfg}]
whereAmI: 0 = outside, 1 = inside room, 2= onbalcony/rooftop, 3= on ladder

Such a function(s) would be very helpful for pathfinding to discern whether building paths need be used, ladder actions, or unit uses outside pathfinding with eventhandler.
