# Set force towards Image Point?

For questions about using Classic.

### » Mon May 25, 2009 5:18 pm

Hello!

I'm working on a game using physics.
I just wonder how to use Set Force Towards Position to an image point. (if that's possible)

Scenario : A thruster game. I have an image point on the nose of my spacecraft. And when I steer,
I want it to add force towards the position the nose is pointing by pressing thrust key (Up arrow).

Any help would be thankfully recieved

I found the solution, Or something that works for me.

I'm making another object. Then I attach it to the spaceships image Point 1. (Calling the new object Pointer)

Making Pointer invisible on start.
Then in add force towards angle, I put

Pointer.X
Pointer.Y

And voila!
In case someone else gets this problem.

Even though you solved the problem, I just thought I should mention that you can get the image point locations with this:

object.ImagePointX("imagepoint")
object.ImagePointY("imagepoint")

You could use this so you don't need a dummy object.
