element playSound3D ( string soundPath, float x, float y, float z, [ bool looped = false ] )

Required Arguments

  • soundPath: The filepath to the sound file you want to play. (Sound file has to be predefined in the meta.xml file with <file /> tag.)
  • x: A floating point number representing the X coordinate on the map.
  • y: A floating point number representing the Y coordinate on the map.
  • z: A floating point number representing the Z coordinate on the map.

Optional Arguments

NOTE: When using optional arguments, you might need to supply all arguments before the one you wish to use. For more information on optional arguments, see optional arguments.

  • looped: A boolean representing whether the sound will be looped. To loop the sound, use true.
