Storing Vector3 on an item

So, I’m trying to make an elevator. Each elevator door pane should contain a property with its position when closed, so that it always closes to the same position.

Positions are referenced using the Vector3 object, so I tried to set them like so:

this.doorPanes.forEach((pane) => {
    pane.setProperty('closedPos', pane.transform.position);

However, upon closer inspection, CoSpaces can only store properties as strings, and attempting to store anything else as a property will cause it to be casted to a string.

What is the simplest way to have per-object Vector3 properties?

I’d suggest keeping it saved as a string, then, when needed, splitting it out into an array, the elements of which you can reference for the x/y/z; e.g:

    let pos = doorPane.getProperty('closedPos').split(','); // array
        new Vector3(pos[0],pos[1],pos[2]),

Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any further questions about this. If this solves your problem, please mark this post as the Solution.

Many thanks,

Not the solution I was hoping for here, but I’ll accept that. I think that’s the best I can do here.
