/* when the player types 'vendingmachine' in to the chat box, they'll see this.*/
public OnPlayerText(playerid, text[])
{
if (strcmp(text, "vendingmachine", true) == 0)
{
new
Float: fDistance = GetVehicleDistanceFromPoint(GetPlayerVehicleID(playerid), 237.9, 115.6, 1010.2),
szMessage[44];
format(szMessage, sizeof(szMessage), "You're %f away from our vending machine.", fDistance);
SendClientMessage(playerid, 0xA9C4E4FF, szMessage);
}
return 0;
