My camera is at 0,0,0 facing to 0 degrees. I would like to write a function that gets a position for an object to place at a certain angle and distance from the camera. E.g: PlaceObject(angle as float, distance as integer)

Any ideas?

Assuming that the angle is through the Y-Axis and the camera is looking down the z-axis

AH, that's a clever one. i used math:

BM[screennr,objectnr]._x=str(_depth#*cos(_angle#))
BM[screennr,objectnr]._y=str(_height#)
BM[screennr,objectnr]._z=str(_depth#*sin(_angle#))
