Raycasting::testPointToPoint

Client-Side Function

Description
This function casts a ray from Point1 to Point2 and returns the position and entity of what's in the way, or undefined if the way is cleared.
Flags are intersection bit flags. They tell the ray what to care about and what not to care about when casting. Passing -1 will intersect with everything, presumably.
Flags:
1: Intersect with map
2: Intersect with vehicles (used to be mission entities?) (includes train)
4: Intersect with peds? (same as 8)
8: Intersect with peds? (same as 4)
16: Intersect with objects
32: Unknown
64: Unknown
128: Unknown
256: Intersect with vegetation (plants, coral. trees not included)
NOTE: Raycasts that intersect with mission_entites (flag = 2) has limited range and will not register for far away entites. The range seems to be about 30 metres.
Syntax
mp.raycasting.testPointToPoint(pos1, pos2, [ignoredEntity], [flags]);
Required Arguments
- pos1: Vector3
- pos2: Vector3
- ignoreEntity: Entity handle or object
- flags: Int
Return value
- object
Example
mp.events.add('render', () => { const startPosition = mp.players.local.getBoneCoords(12844, 0.5, 0, 0); const endPosition = new mp.Vector3(0, 0, 75); const hitData = mp.raycasting.testPointToPoint(startPosition, endPosition); if (!hitData) { mp.game.graphics.drawLine(startPosition.x, startPosition.y, startPosition.z, endPosition.x, endPosition.y, endPosition.z, 255, 255, 255, 255); // Is in line of sight } else { mp.game.graphics.drawLine(startPosition.x, startPosition.y, startPosition.z, endPosition.x, endPosition.y, endPosition.z, 255, 0, 0, 255); // Is NOT in line of sight } });
This function returns undefined or a valid result, if you point with your camera on something.
function pointingAt(distance) { const camera = mp.cameras.new("gameplay"); // gets the current gameplay camera let position = camera.getCoord(); // grab the position of the gameplay camera as Vector3 let direction = camera.getDirection(); // get the forwarding vector of the direction you aim with the gameplay camera as Vector3 let farAway = new mp.Vector3((direction.x * distance) + (position.x), (direction.y * distance) + (position.y), (direction.z * distance) + (position.z)); // calculate a random point, drawn on a invisible line between camera position and direction (* distance) let result = mp.raycasting.testPointToPoint(position, farAway, [1, 16]); // now test point to point return result; // and return the result ( undefined, if no hit ) }
