Ok, I'm sure this is really foolish question but if anyone could point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it :) Who'd have imagined I'd have such trouble with sucha simple concept, but here goes... Ok I know how to create a billboard which rotates around a point (e.g. a particle), and one which rotates about an axis (e.g. a tree) but what do I do if I want one which always faces the player but doesn't rotate with him, as in one which is always centered at a point, faces the player but rotates with the world (eg a moon in the sky has a crater always at the top no matter which way the players head is tilting, if the player stands on his head the crater doesn't face the ground). Really hadn't anticipated spending much time on billboards so thanks in advance for any help :)
