The rotate around point module no longer adds in particle position, so it does not account for other forces and modules effecting the particles, and will only spin in a circle by default. The user can uncheck Set Particle Position and use the modules output outside of the module as a workaround, but this is less convenient. 

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Create a new Niagara emitter based on the fountain preset
  2. Add the rotate around point module to its particle update
  3. Set the rate and phase to 1.0 and the radius to 20


The particles will rotate in a circle regardless of other forces applied to them.


The particles will respect existing forces, but also rotate in a circle as if they were being stirred.
