Smile I need an arrow/pointer. - 12-01-2008, 02:37 PM

I need an arrow with it's point as it's face, because I'm making a flying game with a base, and I need the arrow to point at the base at all times while it's stays on the screen with the aircraft. I tried using a cone shape, but the face of the cone is considered the side of the cone, not the point of it. So, I need an arrow that it's face is it's point. Please & thank you.

You really can't change the orientation of the axis of an object in Alice, as you probably have discovered. That takes an import from another program, such as Anim8or.

What you can do is add a second object, make it the vehicle for the cone, then turn it (but not the cone) so that forward is the direction you want. Finally, set Is Showing to false for the second object.

This has an added advantage in that if the orientation turns out wrong - which often happens - you can make the second object visible again as you debug your program.
