    Hey guys and girls,

    Question: Is it possible for a unit to use the 'bone_turret' trick the cannon tower uses?

    I'm basically trying to create a Chariot: One leads the horse while another unit attacks with a crossbow.

    Haven't really played around with the turret turning stuff. Might work, guess the best way would be to try it out. If it doesn't work, there is an option to do it manually using triggers:

    Code (Text):
    call SetUnitLookAt([facing unit], "bone_head", [target unit], [x offset], [y offset], [z offset] )
    I am not sure if all bones are "allowed", the GUI presets allow chest and head. You can find it under "Animation - lock body part facing" in the editor.

    Alternatively I guess you can name your turret bone "Bone_Head" and use a trigger for the rotation.

    Yeah that's pretty much what I implied.

    I tried out of curiosity and it does work well. :p

    That could even be applied to any unit. Turns out more realistic :) (in that case some excession should be done to prevent the head from rotating 180ยบ xD)
