Is there a command like this in darkphysics (or anything in the DGS bonanza)? I need to figure out how close the player (or any object) is to anything below it, and preferably in one code

You can use a raycast:



The first 3 parameters are the position the raycast will start.
The 3 last is the direction (x#,y#,z#).

So this raycast would move downwards.

After doing the raycast you can fetch data by using commands like:



And so on.

Dark Physics automatically stores the last raycast's data. So you simply do the raycast (doesnt return any values), then you can retrieve them from dark physics by using the other commands.

The only raycast command which doesn't return a value is

phy ray cast all shapes

Yes.
