Summary

Function: rotation llGetRootRotation( );

Returns a rotation that is the region rotation of the root prim of the object.

Caveats

  • This fuction incorrectly returns the avatars region rotation when called in an attachment, use the following instead:
    <lsl>//-- replaces the llGetRootRotation Function

llList2Rot(llGetLinkPrimitiveParams( LINK_ROOT, [PRIM_ROT_LOCAL] ), 0) //-- works correctly in all scenarios</lsl>

Examples

Simple example to set region rotation of child prim in unattached link set <lsl> default {

 state_entry()
 {
   //Rotate 45 degrees about Y-axis
   rotation globalRot = llEuler2Rot(<0.0, 45.0, 0.0> * DEG_TO_RAD);
   llSetLocalRot(globalRot / llGetRootRotation());
 }

}

</lsl>

Notes

In an attached object, returns region rotation of avatar NOT of the object's root prim. See special cases of rotation.
