Hey Guys,

I am wondering about the first argument for the function Utils.getXZWidthAndHeight, which is the "id" argument.

According to my testings it seems as if this argument is absolutely useless.
I passed all kinds of values of each type for the "id" argument but the return values are always the same.
So I decided to assign "nil" for it whenever I use the function and so far it worked perfectly fine.

Never the less... I don't like to guestimate, so pls let me know if there is any use for this argument or not.

No there is no use of this argument until now. You can give the argument nil or anything else. It is not used in the function.

As bluetiger already said the id parameter is not used in the function. It was used in Farming Sim 2009 and is now just a placeholder for modding backward compatibility

the function only converts the world coords to a vector based parallelogramm:

return startWorldX, startWorldZ, widthWorldX-startWorldX, widthWorldZ-startWorldZ, heightWorldX-startWorldX, heightWorldZ-startWorldZ;
