I've tried using Sticky on an object that is parented to another object, but apparently Sticky only works if the sticky object is in worldspace. Can anyone confirm this?

not sure what you mean, but I just tried sticky on a ball running a spiral around a long disc which is parented to a null. Even with the Null moving, sticky seems to work.

Can you please be more clear

hehe.. :) What you described was what I wasn't able to do. Only when I took the object and unparanted it (moving it into worldspace) I was able to make it work using Sticky.

I will have another go with it to see if I did something terrible stupid, or if I LW just had a bad day.. :)

I have noticed that some things don't work right with sticky if you have parenting set up. For instance a wheel parented to a null so it will roll along the uneven surface of the object and using cyclist. I can't remember off the bat what it was but I noticed that certain things stopped working they way they should with parenting and sticky. So if you are planning to set something up a little more intricate, beware it might get a little wierd.
