API Reference


getYaw(actoropt) → {number}

Gets the yaw angle of an actor in world space. The yaw angle indicates which direction on the plane the actor is facing. It is given in radians and counts clockwise from North, so 0 means the actor is facing north, Math.PI/2 means the actor is facing east, Math.PI (or, equivalently, -Math.PI) means south, -Math.PI/2 means west.
Parameters:
Name Type Attributes Description
actor ActorRef <optional>
The actor. If omitted, defaults to the current actor.
Returns:
The actor's yaw angle, in radians.
Type
number

}
