this is a BAD example of a ragdoll.
you can use the generic constraints for a much better job.
this is quite fun,
I am looking into ways of controlling rag dolls, I found a way to add handles to the chain
Look in the middle of the chest for the handle…
it is what is controlling the tracking, and the magnet force.
it is connected to the topmost parent, the Torso.
The rag doll also stands itself up, when the feet ,head, or hands touch the floor.
the stand up but is a bit choppy, and will need some work,
I am going to make another rag doll with control handles for the hands and feet.
With any luck i will have a puppet that responds to joystick and keyboard controls.
Here is a screen shot of the Crane…
And the File:
YOU NEED BLENDER 2.43 #11 Build, for this to work properly… I have not gotten the blender player to work with it yet, so you will need to use the editor to play the file.
Move crane – Arrow keys
Magnet – Space bar
One other note…
the magnet must be close to the rag doll to work…
Well, anyways, I thought I would share… might help people control the new hinges
have a good one everyone
