What is it?
Ragdoll Mover is a tool that allows you to move ragdolls in a similar way to 3D programs. This also includes IK chains.

Why should I use it?
If you are fine with physgun, then maybe you don't need to use this. But here's a few key features of why you might want to use this in certain situations:
-You can move ragdolls without limitations from the ragdoll physics; you can twist the ragdoll's head upside down without problems.
-When you rotate a bone, it's child bones will rotate with it. So you can rotate the ragdoll's arm like you've welded the lower arm and hand to the upper arm. (Except, as mentioned, without physical limitations.)
-By moving the ragdoll's root bone (usually the pelvis), you can move the entire ragdoll like it's a statue!
-Contrary to bones moving relatively to their parent bones, there's IK chains. IK chains are used to keep certain bones in an exact position while moving, for example, the rest of the body. This is most commonly used with legs and arms.

I'm still confused
Then watch the video! It might clear things up.

Are you going to keep updating this?
I have a remake of the tool in the works, but it's not really a priority right now, so it might take a long time to get it done.

If any bugs occur, report them here.

does the movment/axis always freeze up inside other objects? it's getting annoying I'm trying to move something internally inside another ragdoll and it's not moving it at all.

Hey, I tried to use this on the M1A0 ragdoll contained in the M140 cat gun addon...

File exists in two addons - possible conflicts! lua/autorun/ragdollmover.lua (Ragdoll Mover and </DLib>)
