Orbit Maintaining Face Orientation

This is a script that permits you to have two linked prims, one rotating around the other, but with the rotating prim always keeping its face towards the same global direction.  Imagine it like the moon orbiting the earth, but with the same side of the moon always facing the sun!

As mentioned in the script, there are two ways to use this script – the single script version can be placed in the root prim (the centre one) and it will rotate the first linked prim around the root.  The multi-script version needs to be placed in each object – the root and all prims to be rotated.  The single script version is good in that, well, its just one script :)  The multi-script version allows you to rotate a number of objects together if need be.

If you are not comfortable pasting scripts from the web into SL you can buy a pre-packaged version of this script on the marketplace, or in-world at my store.
