Rotating Dual Light - Smooth motion

Map Description

  1. ExTerrestr1al
    here is a prefab for a rotating light thingy...

    NOW JUST ONE PREFAB!

    (OUTDATED INSTRUCTIONS - SEE UPDATE AND FILE DESC)

    This is two pieces so that you can first place the hinges, then magnet the pt2 piece into place. Make sure pt2 is normal physics when done. Can be set to phased in the meantime.

    just alter the brain's script for speed.
    selecting the pt2 group (the spinning part) will give you access to light settings
    if you need to change positioning of lights, first unweld & ungroup pt2 group, while also settinmg to phased so it doesn't fall apart. chanbe positiongs of lights as desired, then group & weld all of the pieces except for the hinge cages and brain back together. Make sure that one of the hinge balls is set to be the parent (not the one that rotates around the outside). SEt back to Normal physics.

    I always turn off scripting while messing with scripted objects. Get them set, then turn it back on.

    GOod luck,

    UPDATE:

    Rotating lights have been enhanced. The pieces are more perfectly aligned now and the labels are generic so that it does the "nearest" piece with that label. You can now just place as many of these on your map as you like, as long as they are at least far enough apart that they won't get confused about which piece is nearest.

    I tried in customs and it was fine even with pieces in the wall.

    Same prefab links will work. But Now you have to set the pt2 piece to Normal yourself when done placing it.

    this is not working in some applications... not others. if anyone has any hints as to what is causing the lights not to move in Customs, please let me know. (it works for me in customs on a test map)
