findnearactor <actor> <distance> <gamevar>

Gets the actor ID of the closest <actor> within <distance> into a <gamevar>. The input for <actor> may be its tile number (example: 2000) or its defined name (example: PIGCOP). The <distance> will be determined on the x and y plane only; for finding actors on the x, y, and z axes use findnearactor3d instead.

By getting the actor ID of a nearby actor, the current actor can use getactor to determine the properties of the target actor or getangle to face the target actor.
