Terrain Height

Hi Guys,

Is there any way to find the height of the Terrain at a certain point in 3D space?

Basically, I want to create a small piece of code that randomly drops Trees, Bushes and Rocks onto the Terrain, but only if the location is within certain parameters:

Trees - not above 50m and not below 0m (I'm planning on placing water in the scene which will be -1m and below)
Bushes - not above 75m and not below 0m
Rocks - not below 25m

I'm assuming that height will be expressed in metres??

Thanks

There is no lua commands that support this yet, but i will put a terrain library together that will allow you to get a height from an x/z position and a few more commands.

we will release this as a patch as soon as it is complete :D
