Summary

Function: float llWater( vector offset );

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

• vector offset

The requested position needs to be in the same sim.

Examples

FindGroundOrWater()
{
    //llSay(0, "Finding Ground.");
    float fGroundHeight = llGround( <0,0,0> );
    float fWaterLevel = llWater( <0,0,0> );
    integer iRepeats = 0;
	if( fGroundHeight < fWaterLevel )
		fGroundHeight = fWaterLevel;
    vector vOldPosition = llGetPos();
    vector vNewPosition = vOldPosition;
    vNewPosition.z = fGroundHeight;
    //llSay(0, "New location should be:" + (string)vNewPosition );
    while( (llAbs((integer)(vOldPosition.z - vNewPosition.z)) > 2.0 ) && (fGroundHeight>iRepeats) )
    {
        llSetPos( vNewPosition );
        vOldPosition = llGetPos();
    	//llSay(0, "vOldPosition=[" + (string)vOldPosition +"]" );
    	iRepeats++;	//iRepeats is used as a safety valve to make sure that this routine doesn't repeat forever.
    }
}

default
{
    state_entry()
    {
        //llSay(0, "default:state_entry");
    }

    touch_start(integer total_number)
    {
        FindGroundOrWater();
    }
}
