arc and rotation

Post by fox in the fog »

I can't rotate an arc... I've tried in all ways, all parameters 10° 20° 180°....Nothing. It's maybe that arc can't be rotated and only box and pyramid can do that?
I post a very easy example.... and than If necessary also my map (if I can't solve my problem by myself):D
Thanks for your time!

not sure why you can't rotate the arc, but have you tried spin?

Code: Select all

arc
 position 50 50 0
 size 70 20 1
 spin 90 0 0 1
 ratio 1
end

Oh yes! That worked... now, in this way the arc is rotated... Thank you! But still not understand why the "rotation" parameter doesn't work

anomaly... I didn't see an error :shock: :cry:
on the red and purple base... the towers are Ok, all right (an arc 90 of rotation and the other, with spin, in the other way like was -90 of rotation). On the blue and green bases.... after I have edit the file adding the spin parameters (because the arc didn't rotate only with rotation values) all the tower's arcs of these two bases are invisible!! I post my map so you can test it and see... because my English isn't so good :)

I have tried also to rotate the arc with pyBZEdit... but nothing! And.. I tried also to re-add the arcs now are invisible in blue and green bases, but in vain :(
What should I do? (with a text editor)

I haven't play around with your map file.
But you rotated the arc 90 degrees.
So assuming the arc was symmetric it would't 'change'.
Maybe color one face a color then try rotation and see what happens.

You might want to specify more perimeters when you make arcs though.
Lag makes me miss all of the good stuff.
And random bans..........
