I have tried almost everything to get this to work properly but it hasn't worked so far. I am trying to attach a torch to my game character, I have tried using the glue objects but when i turned the physics on the torch the torch just fell and made it difficult to move.

I have also tried physics joints which worked a little better but my camera doesn't keep up with the chrome ball I'm using as a game character and so collides with the ball and moves the torch out of the way.

If anyone at all knows a way to do this it would really help, Thanks

You can use 3 Data Sources for position X, Y, and Z. You can put whatever values you want into an operation so it floats near the ball.

For an example, look at this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQ63pGETv0k
