  • If you want to know if the actor is in the location or any of its children, you need to use IsInLocation.
    • For example, if you want to know if the actor is in SolitudeLocation or any of the city interiors, use IsInLocation(SolitudeLocation).
  • If you want to compare two different actors' locations TO one another, you probably want to use IsSameLocation.
  • This function will return NONE until the actor has interacted with a navmesh. Thus, it does not work on a dragon while in flight, or while perched on a building. They must land on the ground first.
  • Many wilderness cells don't have a location assigned to them, thus this function will return none.
