I'm quite new at Blender (and Python) and I have had some problems with a project I'm doing. Right now I'm having a little problem with two methods:
I don't know why, but every time I swap between the Python controller's mode (module and script) one of the two methods works and the other doesn't.
Here I left a link with the blend file, I commented the part that generate the problem within
To further describe the situation: I have a planet with its own orbit (and the World's gravity set to 0) and an object (Cube) that is attracted by the artificial gravity force of the planet. The Cube has a Camera parented to it and I can rotate the camera up/down/left/right with the mouse. The keys W, S, A, D are used to move the Cube over the Planet.
Now, when I use a
main() function to configure the Planet's gravity (within
PlanetaryGravity.py ), I can rotate the Camera and the Cube with the mouse and move the Cube with the keys, but the Cube doesn't get align to the perpendicular vector to the Planet (so the local axis of the Cube don't change and it's not correctly positioned onto the Planet's surface).
On the other hand, when I delete the
main() function and use the script mode for the Python controller, the Cube's axis does get aligned correctly, but I can't rotate the Cube with the mouse (not the camera).
At the end it looks like the method
aignAxisToVect overwrites the changes made by the method
applyRotation when trying to rotate the Cube with the mouse. So how can I get both the axis alignment and Cube rotation to work? Additionally, why doesn't
aignAxisToVect work while Python controller mode is set to
