Probably a stupid queation but can I rotate decals.
And if I can how?
same way you rotate geometry.
I don't think you can rotate decals. Overlays are much better, as you can resize and rotate them.
Decals are nice if you just want to be sure to maintain the proper aspect ratio and size of the decal, or for their speed to just plop them in real quick and work just fine. Overlays give you more control as you can resize and rotate them; decals cannot be rotated or resized.
Oh, and to elaborate on the comments of others, to resize a overlay *, make sure that texture lock is on.
Decals can't be resized, overlays can
Oops, I was explicitly thinking about making sure to not make that mistake, editing the comment now!
Overlays are slightly more expensive though. So rule of thumb is: use decals if it doesn't have to be resized nor rotated, use overlays for all the rest.
I think the difference in expensiveness is quite small anyway.
Why are they more expensive anyway?
