Alright. So, in the project I'm working on, I have an object that I want to turn to face another object. Simply put: how. Although it seems like a good option, I can't get transform variables to work. Also, for extra credit, can I make it reference a different object (with the same name) in each scene? Alternatively, the objects being rotated towards are immobile, so making the object rotate towards a given point would work as well. Thanks!

Take a look at Transform.LookAt
Alright, thanks. Is there a way to do this and make the rotation only occur about the z-axis?
Add a rigidbody to your object and check off freeze rotation under Constraints for x or y.
@FTheCloud, this won't work: rigidbody constraints only affect physics.
I'm having a similar problem. I want it to only rotate on the Y-axis.

var lookPos = target.position - transform.position;
lookPos.y = 0;
var rotation = Quaternion.LookRotation(lookPos);
transform.rotation = Quaternion.Slerp(transform.rotation, rotation, Time.deltaTime * damping);
someone else came up with the code but it worked for me
