    This represents a quaternion.

  2. Okay, that makes sense but rotating objects now become not so trivial thing as I thought

    I updated my previous post. It's definitely a quaternion.
     
  4. So the ratio between (x,y,z)/w should be always the same? And if not model will look distorted? Jeez I forget about math and matrixes long ago

    Ha ha ha! Who thought this stuff would actually be useful? o_O
     
  6. Yeah, you need it to rotate object in the game where programmers choose fast code, not usability :D
    Okay Google say me that w = cos(rotation angle /2) and x, y, z =rotation vector*sin(rotation angle /2) but what units used here? I saw some value around 9, so xsqr+ysqr+zsqr+wsqr isn't = 1

    Radians? I know Volition uses some strange non-standard units for rotation sometimes.
     
  8. Yeah this should be radians. Jeez, when you rotating objects in Saints row.

    But looks like it works, I found that original angle was 136 degrees and replace it with 30. But this thing should be automated 20180523074659_1.jpg

    If there's anything I can do to help, let me know. I stopped working on the zone file tools because nobody seemed to be using them (except myself, for my own mods). I was frustrated that I couldn't add or delete items without crashing the game. Knobby was helping me, but he was very busy and now he's no-longer at Volition. :(
     
  10. This is very sad:(. This tool has potential to be level editor but without Volition help it hardly possible
