Positioning Objects.

Postby Kaizerwolf » Fri Jul 25, 2008 9:17 pm

So i know how to move an object, using the NUM pad. However, i cant seem to find how to make the object face a certain direction (ex. North, South, East, West). I can make it pitch, and move around, but i cannot make it face another direction. Could someone help me?

You need to select "object mode" (that's the magenta arrow in the toolbar, pretty much to the right). After that, you can rotate the current object with the numeric keypad just like you can rotate a cube or cube side.

i tried that. It only pitches it or changes the position. Do i need to hit something else to make it work correctly?

Numpad 1/3, not 2/4/6/8.

You must also select the correct face in the cube before rotating the object.
If you want to change the facing direction, select the top or bottom side of the cube first.
As you will notice, the rotate function is relative to the selected side. ;)

You should take a look around in the thread I made: I want to learn how to use DLE-XP

Your question was answered there, you might find some other helpful things in it too.
