I’m currently attempting to make my ships tilt as they turn / rotate in-game using BodyGyro.
I’m looking at doing this because I recently changed the Piloting system to be Client controlled as opposed to Server, as a result of this only the Pilot can see the ship tilting in-flight now.

My current method involves using a Weld and a root part, in which the C0 is tweened when rotating, allowing it to tilt. But because of this now being managed by the client, Players no longer see the tilting in action.

Any suggestions on how I can manage this using BodyGyros instead?

UPDATE:

Changed the steer of the ship to use BodyGyro as opposed to BodyAngularVelocity, however - Upon trying to achieve the tilt this is the end result.

Im going to need you to post some code.

This is the first attempt of the code:

```
if Command_Seat.Steer == -1 then
System.BodyMovers.BodyGyro.CFrame = System.Exterior.Root.CFrame * CFrame.fromEulerAnglesXYZ(0, math.rad(15), 15)
elseif Command_Seat.Steer == 0 then
System.BodyMovers.BodyGyro.CFrame = System.Exterior.Root.CFrame * CFrame.fromEulerAnglesXYZ(0, 0, 0)
elseif Command_Seat.Steer == 1 then
System.BodyMovers.BodyGyro.CFrame = System.Exterior.Root.CFrame * CFrame.fromEulerAnglesXYZ(0, math.rad(15), 15)
end
```

This is the second attempt of the code:

```
if Command_Seat.Steer == -1 then
System.BodyMovers.BodyGyro.CFrame = CFrame.Angles(0, math.rad(15), 0) * CFrame.Angles(0, 0, math.rad(15))
elseif Command_Seat.Steer == 0 then
System.BodyMovers.BodyGyro.CFrame = CFrame.Angles(0, math.rad(0), 0) * CFrame.Angles(0, 0, math.rad(0))
elseif Command_Seat.Steer == 1 then
System.BodyMovers.BodyGyro.CFrame = CFrame.Angles(0, math.rad(-15), 0) * CFrame.Angles(0, 0, math.rad(-15))
end
```

None of which were the desired result.

The issue is that you are adding onto the already transformed CFrame. The rotations pile up and you have this weird orientation as a result. You could try getting the Y component of the orientation and combining it with the desired inclination though I haven’t worked with matrices in a long time so I’d have to check for myself.

`local OrientationCFrame = CFrame.Angles(0,CurrentY,0)*CFrame.Angles(0,0,DesiredIncl)`

Don’t forget to transform deg to rad.

So using this method it’d be: (?)
`System.BodyMovers.BodyGyro.CFrame = CFrame.new(0,System.Exterior.Root.Orientation.Y,0)*CFrame.new(0,0,15)`

As shown about with my first version -

That uses BodyAngularVelocity to turn Left / Right and a seperate ‘Root’ Part with a Weld that Tweens the C0 when the Steer property is changed.
Because I changed the controls the be client-side, the tilting is now only visible to the actual Pilot.

As the Part’s NetworkOwner is set to the Pilot - I’m planning on using BodyGyro to achieve that same effect where it can both turn left / right as well as tilt in the process.

Oops. I’ll fix my original post.

nooneisback:

local OrientationCFrame = CFrame.Angles(0,CurrentY,0)*CFrame.Angles(0,0,DesiredIncl)

I may of definitely of done this wrong, but:

```
System.BodyMovers.BodyGyro.CFrame = System.Exterior.Root.CFrame * CFrame.fromEulerAnglesXYZ(0, math.rad(15), 0)
System.BodyMovers.BodyGyro.CFrame = CFrame.Angles(0,System.Exterior.Root.Orientation.Y,0)*CFrame.Angles(0,0,math.rad(15))
```

What is the result though? I have no way to know what is happening.

Turns out your original method had worked - I was just going the wrong way about it!
Thank you so much!

https://gyazo.com/a2b9abefc615ae6f51a6ac9af4d4cbc0

```
if Command_Seat.Steer == -1 then
CurrentY = CurrentY + 1
CurrentZ = 15
elseif Command_Seat.Steer == 0 then
CurrentZ = 0
elseif Command_Seat.Steer == 1 then
CurrentY = CurrentY - 1
CurrentZ = -15
end
System.BodyMovers.BodyGyro.CFrame = CFrame.Angles(0, math.rad(CurrentY), 0) * CFrame.Angles(0, 0, math.rad(CurrentZ))
```

This seems about right. Try messing around with MaxTorque and P. The result seems correct, but not visible enough.

Looks visible to me, good job!

Hello, sorry to bump.

In my current script it works fine:

```
local Command_Seat = script.Parent
CurrentY = Command_Seat.BodyGyro.CFrame.Y
CurrentZ = Command_Seat.BodyGyro.CFrame.Z
while wait() do
if Command_Seat.Steer == -1 then
CurrentY = CurrentY + 1
CurrentZ = 15
elseif Command_Seat.Steer == 0 then
CurrentZ = 0
elseif Command_Seat.Steer == 1 then
CurrentY = CurrentY - 1
CurrentZ = -15
end
Command_Seat.BodyGyro.CFrame = CFrame.Angles(0, math.rad(CurrentY), 0) * CFrame.Angles(0, 0, math.rad(CurrentZ))
end
```

But since I try to avoid while loops since it slows my server down I tried this and it doesn’t work resulting in weird rotation

```
local Command_Seat = script.Parent
CurrentY = Command_Seat.BodyGyro.CFrame.Y
CurrentZ = Command_Seat.BodyGyro.CFrame.Z
Command_Seat:GetPropertyChangedSignal("Steer"):Connect(function()
if Command_Seat.Steer == -1 then
CurrentY = CurrentY + 1
CurrentZ = 15
elseif Command_Seat.Steer == 0 then
CurrentZ = 0
elseif Command_Seat.Steer == 1 then
CurrentY = CurrentY - 1
CurrentZ = -15
end
Command_Seat.BodyGyro.CFrame = CFrame.Angles(0, math.rad(CurrentY), 0) * CFrame.Angles(0, 0, math.rad(CurrentZ))
end)
```

Is there a way around the loop or to fix the second one? or is it ok to have the loop I’m not entirely sure if its that bad.

Thanks, sorry again.
