How to set a vehicle's angle correctly.
« on: July 27, 2013, 01:15:54 am »
If you didn't know, setting a vehicle's angle points to weird directions, well, here is your fix!
Instead of passing degrees, you must pass a radian.
I provided a simple DegreesToRadians function below:

Code: [Select]
function DegreesToRadians(deg)
{
local rad = deg * PI / 180.0;
return rad;
}

You will have to do
Code: [Select]
vehicle.Angle = DegreesToRadians(desiredangle);
Usage example:
Code: [Select]
vehicle.Angle = DegreesToRadians(180);
The above example will set 'vehicle' s angle to 180.

How is it possible that no one tried to set the vehicle angle before, when LU is available for almost 3 years?

We have set the vehicle angle before but it would just turn it in some bizarre direction instead of the desired one.

Vortex, that's even more weird... Why did no one report, that "setting angle doesn't work" then?

Somebody did already, but we didn't know there was a script side fix until Shadow introduced it.
