I have an object that is moved on X axis. After that I applied FixObjectPivot so I can do rotation of that object like it's spinning around center. Now since object axis are reset to the center (0,0,0) but physically is all over the place, how can I track real object coordinates - GetObject and GetObjectWorld are giving 0 values beause of FixObjectPivot

You can do that in one of two ways
1) You can get the "actual" center of the object using a combination of object position and mesh bounds (Note this will not work if the object is scaled, it will work if it's scaled permanent)
GetObjectMeshSizeMin/Max/X/Y/Z()
2) When you first load the object and it is at (0,0,0). You can create an object and use FixObjectToObject() to attach it to your object. The you can use GetWorld/X/Y/Z() to get the position of the object you attached which will be the center of your object

Thank you! FixObjectToObject does the job
