"Little" piece Rotation problem

Post by Cubex »

Well, for representing my problem, I bring some pics:

In this, you can see how i rotate the piece in Y axis -45

Pic 2, All seems ok here....

In this I rotate X axis -30, so the piece is in "rest" position

I save it and close UpSpring... i open it again....

The piece lost his local axises and now when i try to rotate X as in Pic 1, i get this strange rotation :(


Cubex is not amused..................

you mean after save+load all the translations are are 0,0,0 even if object is in a new position? That is normal..
imo better to do such things in the modeling software and use Upspring as little as possible.

I try to use UpSpring as less as posible :P but the problem here is that the model needs to rotate like in Pic 2 ingame

I had issues like this all the time when I was modeling for spring stuff.

The cause for me, was compiling multiple objects into a single object after UVW-mapping the separate parts.

The compiled piece sometimes assumed the Origin of one of the other pieces, and wasn't centered/balanced to the center of the new object that got compiled.

I fixed it by creating an object which was to act as the Origin, then re-compiling the grouped-object to it, just remember to delete the faces of the object you used as the new origin/pivot.

I had to do this all the time in 3dsMax before converting to .s3o for importing into Spring.
