Post Number of actors in a radius
How would I go about detecting the number of specific actors in a certain distance from the actor calling the script, then write it to a variable?
For example;

Check for the amount of coalition light's that are within a radius of 100 pixels, if they're on my team then set the variable self.Noomboomba to that amount.

Something like

Code:
function Update(self)
  self.Noomboomba = 0;

  for actor in MovableMan.Actors do
    if actor.PresetName == "Coalition Light" and SceneMan:ShortestDistance(self.Pos, actor.Pos, SceneMan.SceneWrapsX).Magnitude < 100 then
      self.Noomboomba = self.Noomboomba + 1;
    end
  end

end


After the 'for actor' block, self.Noomboomba will have the number of Coalition Light units in range, or whatever they're named.
