How can I check the distance between two objects? I need to know so I can keep the cable of my grappling hook in BH from extending past the hook.

if ( (VSize(Hook.Location - Location)) >= (VSize(Cable.Location - Location)) )


.... not sure never used it in this manner but Im pretty sure it will work....

VSize(Object1.Location - Object2.Location) <=> aFloatValue

(simple vector math)

I'm sure it is, but I don't know a lot about vectors. I got it working, btw, thanks. :)
