I'd like to see some x and z axis rotation capabilities added .. Imagine =

wall panel , floor pice , angled roof piece, flat roof piece , a slope =
..... etc...
Instead of having 10 diferent objects the sam size to fill thes roles 1 =
could leave room for different sized versions to be made , so we can =
fill small and medium sized gaps without
all that ugly overlap :-)

Hear hear, I agree with you Raven! It would make a creation of a castle =
or landscape look more real. And perhaps we even could get some other =
fun objects to work with.

You must've missed the recent thread about this. There's time to catch up before the test.

Since the topic of this thread is "better" Object Rotation, I would like to
bring up a problem with vertical rotation in ActiveWorlds, and offer a
potential solution...

Objects in ActiveWorlds are built around a 3D origin point which is
generally at the bottom of the object at the intersection of the X and Z
centerlines.

The problem this introduces is that, for example, if you try to rotate a
cube 90 degrees around the x axis (through the y-z plane) you burry half of
the object underground.

The solution I propose is to rotate them around a semi-artificial center.
The new center of rotation would be halfway between the two extremes of the
y axis at the x-z origin. Not sure if or how it could be done.. but there
it is anyway.

Having an option to do this would be fine, but not all the time. Objects are created centered for, sometimes, specific purposes.
