Hm, other than a common pointer base the only thing I can think of right now is

http://forum.cheatengine.org/viewtopic.php?p=5727737

meaning you could add a function like this to the Table->Show Cheat Table Lua Script (and execute it)
Code:
function mrAddr(desc)
  return getAddressList().getMemoryRecordByDescription(desc).CurrentAddress
  -- note, only CurrentAddress worked when I tested this... Address gave an incorrect address
end


And then for the address of "Wander Gravity: Z" you could use mrAddr('Wander Pos: Y')-C0 (note that using double quotes mrAddr("...") did not seem to work).

Keep in mind

[it] won't be updated realtime unless you manually call reinterpret
so if Pos: Y was based on a pointer and the address for it changed, then Gravity: Z would not change unless you right clicked used "Force recheck symbols" or wrote a lua timer to occasionally call reinterpret on the Gravity Z memory record.


If it was a child like "Agro Pos: X" and "Agro Coordinates" had an address then the address of the x pos could just be -C0 and it'd be interpreted as "Agro Coordinates" address - C0.

use a parent child setup
the parent has the base address and set the child addresses to
Code:

-10

Code:

+0

Code:

+10


etc...
