Maurize 0 Posted March 17, 2018 Share Posted March 17, 2018 (edited) Hello again, I'm trying to spawn the player onto an element. This element has a non-fixed rotation. I'm just wondering if the function getPointFromDistanceRotation isn't enough to do this? Player details can be found here and the ships details are here I'm currently using this snippet (to try) to get the explained result: addCommandHandler("boat", function(player, cmd) local x, y, z = getElementPosition(player) local _, _, r = getElementRotation(player) outputChatBox("player pos: "..x..","..y..","..z..","..r, player) local ship = createShip(x, y, z, r) -- returns model of pirateship local x, y, z = getElementPosition(ship) local _, _, r = getElementRotation(ship) outputChatBox("ship pos: "..x..","..y..","..z..","..r, player) local x, y = getPointFromDistanceRotation(x - 0.1, y - 2.7, 5, r) -- offset included outputChatBox("new player pos: "..x..","..y..","..z..","..r, player) setElementPosition(player, x, y, 43.7) end) What am I'm doing wrong? Do I need to calculate the offset coordinates extra? Greetings, Maurize Edited March 17, 2018 by Maurize Link to post

DNL291 740 Posted March 17, 2018 Share Posted March 17, 2018 (edited) I don't know if I understood you well, anyway: Firstly, try using this function to create the marker at a specific position of the object: function getPositionFromElementOffset(element,offX,offY,offZ) local m = getElementMatrix ( element ) -- Get the matrix local x = offX * m[1][1] + offY * m[2][1] + offZ * m[3][1] + m[4][1] -- Apply transform local y = offX * m[1][2] + offY * m[2][2] + offZ * m[3][2] + m[4][2] local z = offX * m[1][3] + offY * m[2][3] + offZ * m[3][3] + m[4][3] return x, y, z -- Return the transformed point end Done that, you can set the player in front the mark that way: local playerRot = 0 -- you'll need to adjust player rotation local playerX = markerX + math.sin( math.rad( playerRot ) ) * .6 local playerY = markerY + math.cos( math.rad( playerRot ) ) * .6 setElementPosition( player, playerX, playerY, markerZ+1 ) setElementRotation( player, 0, 0, ( 360-playerRot ) ) If you change the object rotation, you'll also need to calculate the corresponding player's rotation in the pirate ship.

Maurize 0 Posted March 18, 2018 Author Share Posted March 18, 2018 Thank you very much! The function is exactly what I needed! The positions are now exactly like I want them. Link to post
