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.


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