Orienting a rendered entity correctly


Recommended Posts


I have been working on rendering a custom projectile entity for an item I have been working on. I have gotten the entity to render how I need it to, except for one small problem: it is not orienting to the direction of the player's camera. I have tried playing around with various rotation Quaternions for the Matrix Stack, but to no effect. The closest I got was having the rotation be based on the player's camera orientation. This gives the entity the initial orientation that I want, but the problem is then that  the projectile will always be rendered like that. I know there is a way to do this , but I can't seem to find it.


Any help is greatly appreciated!
