How to place objects on the surface of a sphere when/where the sphere is clicked?


Recommended Posts

When a sphere is clicked I want to place an object on the surface of the sphere where the sphere is clicked.

I have a playground that places an object at a random point on the surface when the sphere is clicked:


Can someone update the unitX, unitY and unitZ vars on lines 33-35 so that they reflect the point on the sphere that was clicked instead of random? These unit x, y and z values are between 0-1.

Hey thanks, it's a bit off though. I forgot to mention that you can use the arrow keys to rotate the sphere. So you need to take the rotation into consideration when finding the point. And when you rotate the big sphere all the little white markers should rotate with the whole sphere. So I think you need to attach the white markers to the sphere using their parent property like I did in my playground.
