Unity No appropriate version of 'UnityEngine.Transform.RotateAround'

Recommended Posts

I'm getting this error:


 Assets/CircularOrbit.js(11,26): BCE0023: No appropriate version of 'UnityEngine.Transform.RotateAround' for the      argument list '(UnityEngine.Vector3, System.Type, float)' was found.


Here is my script:


#pragma strict
function Start () {
function Update () {
   var mountain : GameObject;
// This will return the game object named Hand in the scene.
   mountain = GameObject.Find("QuantumCold_B");
   transform.RotateAround(mountain.transform.position, Vector2,20 * Time.deltaTime);
What I am trying to do is circle around a mountain object which is a mesh.

the 2nd parameter looks wrong. Instead of just Vector2, try Vector3.Up,


The 2nd param is the axis that the rotation is to be around. that axis must be in 3d space so it needs a Vector3. Most likely, you want Vector3.Up for it.

transform.RotateAround(mountain.transform.position, Vector2,20 * Time.deltaTime);


I'm going to guess that the bolded part is supposed to be the rotation axis? If so, you should actually pass it an axis, ie. an instance of a Vector3. Right now you're passing it the type Vector2. RotateAround() expects two Vector3s and a float, and right now you're giving it a Vector3, a type, and a float, just like the error message says.


Next time you can solve something like this more quickly by reading what the error message is saying. If you compared the error message to the actual function signature of RotateAround (found [url=]here[/url]), I think you would have spotted the problem pretty quickly. Error messages are there for a reason. ;)

      Hi all!
      We are looking for a C# programmer for our 2D Action RPG titled Adavia, made in Unity.
      The game itself is akin to Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, though we're also adding in traditional RPG elements such as Character Creation.
      This is more of a hobby than anything commercial, if it somehow does manage to go commercially, all revenue will be split equally among the team.
      If you're interested, we ask that you be comfortable with:
      Coding A.I's for enemies and NPCs. Working with GUI's. Communicating regularly with the team via Skype (text only). If you have any questions or would like to apply, please contact me at

      You are the commander of a special forces squadron. You were given a task that appeared simple at first glance - to check for suspicious activity in the building of an abandoned psychiatric hospital. But you could not even imagine what you will actually have to face.

      I've never really been a "Unity guy", since all of my game-dev learning happened in C++, and in other engines, but I recently discovered the "complete projects" section in the asset store.  It's full up on projects you can buy that are billed as "ready to customize and release", with full ad integration.  Some of them claim to be for educational purposes, but why would you include a complete, polished, full featured game with ads as an educational example?
      This leads me to the question of why this goes by unchallenged?  Does Unity and the environment of the Unity Store actively encourage this style of game development?  Is the problem of asset flipping our own fault?  I don't mean this as a "we should make Unity shut this down" kind of thread, but rather just to examine whether or not the environment of being able to just buy whole games or pieces of games is something that damages the industry.  I get why Unity would allow it, and I'm sure it's a working business model for some people- and maybe some people DO actually just use these to learn from, but I'm not that naive as to think that there aren't people who recognize this as one of the shortest paths to putting a game on the market so they can cash in.
