Good Day! I am stuck with an interesting problem. I purchased FPS Model Pack 70 and was able to incorporate it within my DBPro program and it works great. Only one problem I have encountered and it has to do with pointing the object towards the camera. If I use POINT OBJECT command towards my camera's coordinates, then the Object is facing the Opposite direction with it's back turned to me. Not using it works as long as I DO NOT APPROACH from the REAR. Object always points in one direction and I need it to face me from any direction. I tried Fix Object Pivot but it still shows it's back to me.

+ Code Snippet

Any idea what I can try to make the Object face me (Camera) no matter which way I approach from without having it's back always turned to me?

Rotate the object 180 degrees on the y axis then Fix Object Pivot.

That fixed it!!! What had happened was I had the YRotate command in the wrong place.

I was trying it AFTER the PIVOT and not BEFORE. DUH!!! Need some Red Bull or something! Thanks!!!
