How Do I Rotate Feet?
« on: September 11, 2008, 01:59:34 pm »
I know it is in another thread...I replied there and got no answer so I will do so here again.

I hold tab and get no blue rings...what am I doing wrong?  Apparently it is possible and easy but I am missing something.  Any help would be great guys!

Thanks.

The part must be highlighted (click it), then holding tab will show any extra manipulation that is possible on that part.

If nothing shows up, that part cannot be rotated.

Click on the foot you want to rotate then hold tab, so far all of the ones I tested can be rotated.

No, all of them can and yeah I know it's not very useful... just a stupid question, are you trying to rotate them in the CC or in the Spore CE? (foot rotation only works on Spore CE)

I'm not sure if any feet can't be rotated, but I have encountered parts that don't show any extra rings with tab held. Though that was probably in one of the vehicle editors... I can't remember.

Probably the Vehicle Editor. There is a glitch with the Vehicle that if you make a part too big and click on it and hit tab, the circles won't show up. I think it happens when a part crosses one of those invisible thresholds that limit the size of vehicles normally (like how you can't place some parts because the piece you're trying to attach to is outside the ring).

Edit: Also... in Cell you can't rotate your parts at all... which sucks.. because sometimes I want to rotate a spike to look better and move it so it points forward more but I get no rotation options.

In Spore I've rotated feet to face the other direction.

I didnt realise you could do this now. Not that I have any need for it.
