instance_nearest_ext for GMS
Instance_nearest_ext is an extension for Game Maker 8.
This is a port of that legacy extension to Game Maker Studio 1 & 2.
The extension allows you to do several things:
- Find the Nth nearest instance
- Find the Nth furthest instance
- Find Nth nearest instance with variable X = 0, where "X" can be any variable, "0" can be any number and "=" can be any operator.
The original extension that I based this off was written by Kyle_Solo and can be found here: http://gmbase.cubedwater.com/index.php?page=extension&id=158
