I am attempting to place a sarcophagus in a copy of 262TEL, facing towards the turbolift. Yet whenever I place it using the GIT, it always faces in the opposite direction, no matter what I do!

Have you tried setting the orientation to the opposite of what you wanted? It may reverse to the direction you wanted. :) You may have gotten the 'top' and 'bottom' mixed up in regards to orientation, placeables are weird like that.

Thanks! :)
I was replacing an existing placeable in the GIT file, nad using the standard orientation thingy. I've tried not changing it, reversing it, setting it to 100, setting it to 180, 270, 360, 90......
I tried the XOrientation, but that didn't work eitehr.....I'll try "Y", and see if that works.

If you're working with a Placeable, the orientation is set in the "Bearing" field. Its values are from -Pi to +Pi radians, with 90 degrees (east) = 0 radians and 270 deg = +/- pi.

As indicatted by Fred, you have to use the bearing. To make things easy, the whereami armband calculates it for you :D

Just use the value where it says bearing:

Hmmm.........I always get a "3.14159" bearing, and "-180.0" in orientation whenever I use the band....

I have also changed the bearing several times, and discovered taht I can only change the bearing through something less than 180 degrees East-West....

Okay, I retried this. It works! Thank you, all of you!

For the armband, make sure you have the latest version (2.0.5): if you have a version other than 2.0.2 or 2.0.5 the bearing and orientation do not display correctly.

Will it work with K1?

I can post a K1 version later on.

In the meantime, you could simply download this armband mod of mine for K1: http://pcgamemods.com/mod/7386.html and rename the d3_location.ncs script from the whereami armband to d3_spawning.ncs
