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.

I cannot for the life of me find certain joints on certain models.

For example the Open Fortress Mercenary from the mounted version of Open Fortress (not the workshop version) and I couldn't select certain joints like spine 1 and 3, and the collarbones, yet the when checking the Advanced Bone Tool they were selectable. Any reason why

It's fine, and why shouldn't we use it?

The tool works for the most part, but there are a few bugs:
- Every so often, the tool will lock on a ragdoll and throw null errors
- The IK Chain tool's slider's labels are a little messed up but works fine
- The IK Chain's tips will always say "hip" and "foot" when you only need the upper leg and foot for a lag; upper arm and wrist for a hand
- Sometimes the rings vanish
