i think i remmber that on GDK 1.0 there was a command dbSizeObject where you can size any object in exact numbers
but on DarkGDK 2.0 you only have dbScaleObject which uses precentage instead of real numbers.

so , if i have object obj1 and i also have obj2
i want obj2 to be the same size as obj1

but if an obj1 size is 25,25,25
and obj2 is 10,10,10

if i use dbScaleObject(obj2,dbObjectSizeX(obj1),dbObjectSizeY(obj1),dbObjectSizeZ(obj1))
the result will actually be
obj2 size x = 2.5f
obj2 size y = 2.5f
obj2 size z = 2.5f

so it will actually be smaller..

im interesting in how to make obj2 the exact size as obj1 ..
i wonder and pawnder but i cant see the math behind it..

ty for your help and time.

Here's a suggestion:

obj2.scale = obj1.size/obj2.size*100.0
