Not in this case.. The TOTAN lamp is a free-moving object.. you hit the posts with balls and the lamp spins depending on the speed and angle that you hit it. The TAF models are single-use, single-direction objects that have their own movement script. It's impossible in the current VP to read information on how hard a ball strikes an object and at what angle, to properly calculate the resulting spin. Also, the lamp spins very fast when hit hard.. which VP would have difficulty recreating using the create/destroy trick TAF uses.
