Dynamic Spawning Script Debugging

                    // Determine whether to spawn station in a building or outside
                    if (_nearestBuilding distance _position < 400) then {
                        // Spawn a station in the nearestBuilding
                        _spawnFlag = createVehicle [_flag, _nearestBuilding buildingPos 1, [], 0, "NONE"];
                        // Spawn a cache in the nearestBuilding
                        _spawnCache = createVehicle [_cache, _nearestBuilding buildingPos 1, [], 0, "NONE"];
                    } else {
                        _cache = "CUP_TKVehicleBox_EP1";
                        _spawnflag = createVehicle [_flag, _position, [], 0, "NONE"];
                        _spawncache = createVehicle [_cache, _position, [], 0, "NONE"];
                        _spawntent = createVehicle ["Land_TentA_F", _position, [], 0, "NONE"];
                    _spawnVehicleStation = createVehicle [_vehicleStation, _position, [], 0, "NONE"];
                    _warlord createUnit [_position, _group];

No I did not include the entire script because it isn't necessary, the problem that is occurring is occurring somewhere within this excerpt - so assume all undeclared variables have been declared.


So I've been working on some dynamic spawning scripts for some insurgent objects. I added a nested if to determine whether to spawn some of the assets inside a building or outside. Now this works about half of the time, the other half of the time it only spawns "_warlord" and "_vehicleStation" in the location, and throws "_cache" and "_flag" to the origin. I'm assuming that this could be because it doesn't recognize certain buildings as enterable with positions, in which case I will just have to prepare an array of buildings to look for. 


Any help or opinions are much appreciated. Thank you.
