# axis of rotation

## Recommended Posts

I am working on a small asteroids type game. I am having trouble figuring out how to rotate and trnslate the ship based on its own coordinate axis. when i do this: glRotatef(rot,0,0,1); glTranslatef(0,ytrans,0); draw_ship(); it uses the world coordinate axis for its rotation. how do I rotate around the ships axis?
