in the figure below you'll see two separate points in time and three object. You can also see the direction object C is facing.


I am trying to replicate a false point of origin for object B at the center of object A, which will then orbit around A based on the direction of object C in the BGE using python. parenting object B and A are not allowed, in fact no parenting is allowed in this example, neither is rotating object B based on the rotation of object A.

how would I accomplish this in the bge using python?

It took me a while to figure out just how to articulate this, and to keep it clear what I want to do. I thanks for any help in advanced.

  • $\begingroup$ I dont know BGE but can you place in an empty and parent your object to the empty? That should solve your problem. Your anchor point should be the empty. $\endgroup$ – Nick Sieben Jan 10 at 17:35

  • $\begingroup$ The only thing I can think to do really is to create a circle, and then match the object in the allowed points in the circle to the camera. And I don't really know how you'd do that regardless it doesn't seem like a very effective method, any suggestions? $\endgroup$ – Frederick Feb 20 at 19:06
