EDIT: please ignore this one, I had a brain fade moment.

A couple of months ago I started work (or play) on an AI system.

Is there a command to tell if an object is in view of another object?

If not, I had an idea.
Firing a bunch of rays in front of the looking object might be a bit hit and miss.
So I was thinking I could transfer the camera to the object and match it's rotation. Then use GetObjectInScreen( objID ) and if the second object is in view then fire a ray at it to see if it's hidden behind something.

I can then transfer the cam back to the player so it would look like it never happened.

EDIT: I guess the normal way (which I only just thought of) is to fire a ray from an object to every other object then calculate some angles to work out if something is in view and in front of the first object.
See? Noobish every day.
BASIC appeared in May 1964. Lightning flashed, the wind roared and the Earth moved.
And nine months later I was born.
So here I am.
I am Basic.
Code is in my genes.
