Hi all, just wondering if you could help me.

I have 2 objects. Object2 is parented to object1 so uses its coordinate space.

What im trying to do is have object 2 always [i]n [/i]distance away from object 1 but always in aligment to a GLOBAL vector.

So if i have a global vector. object 1 can move around and rotate, and object 2 is always following object 1 but in the direction of the global vector.

How might i do this?

illustration to help: (2 examples, the green arrow is the global vector)
