Summary

Function: float llWater( vector offset );

Returns a float that is the water height below the object position + offset

• vector offset

Only the X and Y coordinates of the offset are important.
Water height is constant across each entire sim and is typically 20 meters but not always.

Caveats

  • The requested position needs to be in the same sim.

Examples

<lsl>// Gets the object to land on ground or on water // by Konigmann Lippmann & Strife Onizuka FindGroundOrWater() {

   float fHeight = llGround( ZERO_VECTOR );
   float fWaterLevel = llWater( ZERO_VECTOR );
   if( fHeight < fWaterLevel )
       fHeight = fWaterLevel;
   vector vTarget = llGetPos();
   //llSetPos can only move 10m at a time.
   integer iCounter = 1 + llAbs((integer)(vTarget.z - fHeight) / 10);
   vTarget.z = fHeight;
   do
       llSetPos( vTarget );
   while( --iCounter );

}
