This mod is probably the one that took me the longest to release after I started it, but it's finally here!
It combines two main ideas I had when I started modding on Goat Sim: The first one is the possibility to control NPCs (I wanted to include that in the Target Goat mod). The second is the possibility to fly.
I started this mod by creating the ghost mode, which means creating a new body that is transparent, can fly and can pass through objects. Ironically the thing in this list I spent a lot of time on is the transparency X) The main problem was that you can't just add alpha using code, or more precisely you can, but if the texture of the goat doesn't have the correct parameters it has no effect at all -_- Hopefully the 1.1 update saved me by adding a transparent texture on every goat (used when the camera is too close to the goat).
When the ghost was done, I started thinking about a better way to control NPCs. The first method I thought about was to convert the GGNpc object into a GGGoat object and then control it with the default player controller: This method was way too hard to implement and that's why abandoned the idea during the Target Goat conception.
The second method was to turn the goat invisible and to attach it to the NPC. This was working nicely, except for moving the NPC: The AI of the NPC was completely broking the player commands and the NPC was acting not at all as expected.
Finally the last method I imagined, and the one in the current version, just attach the player controller to the GGNpc object. This is only possible since 1.1, the only remaining problem with this method is that the camera is a bit crappy: As the controlled object is not a GGGoat, the camera mode is set to default and you lost all the effects of the goat camera (zoom, smooth moves, bounces when sprinting, etc...).
So with this last method, the movements are working correctly, I just had to manually configure the ragdoll key and the animations to play on the NPC.

Hey, if anyone is having trouble moving around with this mod, just wanted to let you know: When in ghost form, you move toward the direction you are looking. I had a bit of trouble with that, so if anyone else is having trouble with it, here you go.

@Exotic As A Butter: Well characters with the jump animation should use it, if you don't see any animation when you jump then this character probably don't have any jump animation in it and it can't be helped ^^
About making possessed GoatZ zombies use their zombification power, I could probably add a special behaviour to them for that, but I'm not sure if I want to... As this would only be useable by a limited number of users and only on one map.

I don't wanna run forever, and also, add the jump animation from payday.
Also, I use this mod with GOATZ, I wanna zombify people as a human zombie.

@nnikkiem7: Please make sure that you don't have more than 50 Goat Sim mods installed on your computer, and if you do, remove some of them to be under 50 then reinstall this mod and it should work :)
