int UniqueTID ([int tid[, int limit]])
Returns a new TID that is not currently used by any actors.
- tid: Starting value from which to check. It has two modes of operation:
- If tid is non-zero, then it checks TIDs one-by-one starting at the given tid until it finds a free one.
- If tid is zero, then it returns a completely random TID.
- limit: Specifies the number of attempts to make to find a free TID. If limit is non-zero, then it will only check that many times for a free TID, so it might not find a free one. If no free TID is found, 0 is returned. If limit is zero, then the search is effectively unlimited.
0 if no free TID is found, a positive value corresponding to an unused TID otherwise.
