Get a prop to face a certain direction

Need a parented prop to, for example, face towards the same vector as the parent.

I feel like i’m drastically overlooking something

[lua]–where ‘child’ is the entity you want to parent, and ‘parent’ is the entity you want to parent to
child:SetLocalPos( Vector(0,0,0) )
child:SetLocalAngles( Angle(0,0,0) )[/lua]

child is now parented to parent, and is at the exact same location and angles. Adjust Vector(0,0,0) and Angle(0,0,0) as needed.
