    I am using the rotate towards node to get an enemy to rotate towards the player. The problem is when I add the node and select the character for the asset I want to follow, the enemy rotates the opposite direction as the player. If I move the character left the enemy rotates right and if I move the character down the enemy rotates up. Anyone know how to solve this issue?

    I have set up a simple 3D game to test the rotate towards and it is working correctly for me. I don't know the "correct" solution to your problem, but a quick and dirty answer that might work for you is to double click on the Rotate Towards node to open the script.
    Towards the bottom, find the line that says: let tp = targetEnt.position();
    After that line, add this: tp.x = -tp.x;
    If that doesn't completely solve it, try this instead:
    tp.x = -tp.x;
    tp.z = -tp.z;
    In my game, this code caused the enemy to rotate opposite of my character, so it might correct your enemy movement.

    Don't know why I didn't think of this earlier, but this might be a better solution. Double click on the enemy in your Asset Library to open the node map. Click on the 3D Model node.On the right side of the screen, scroll down to Rotation and change Y to 180.

    I'll try the code because I have already tried rotating the 3d model
