not sure exactly what you mean by that, do you mean it rotates around its center??

If so, you need to set your doors point of origin to the hinge side of the door?

Thank you

I can see you set object pivot after moving them then calling the rotate.

MoveObjectLocalX(door, -3)

Imagine the point at 0,0,0 will be your pivot. Move your object so that 0,0,0 is your pivot point
