    Hey all,

    I'm trying to rotate an object using the empty game object method, but it's not working as no matter how I position the empty parent object, it rotates based on the size and shape of the child, rather than from it's own rotation point.

    I've uploaded a sample project that illustrates what I'm trying to do - rotate an incomplete circle as if it were a complete circle:

    Can someone help me fix this so that the incomplete circle rotates around a center point as if it were a completed circle?

    Thanks!

    James

    Do you have your Pivot Point set to "Center"? Change it to "Pivot"
