### arc and rotation

Posted: Sun Jun 05, 2011 10:49 am
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

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
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 assume you solved the problem... my question is ... how did you?

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.

Thank you mahem1 for the suggestions, done for make experience
Hutty, I used spin values
