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.

ok thanks

legs or arms only should consist of 3 bones - for arms, those are upperarm, lowerarm and hand, for legs - hip, knee and foot (they don't have to be necessarily named like that if you use ik creator).

so mostly 3 bones. if you try to make an ik for a limb that has more than 3 bones, this error will pop up

what does "there can only be one kneebone" mean?
PenolAkushari  [author] Oct 21 @ 11:17am 
that's what ik rigs do - make rest of the arm/leg follow the movement of the hand/foot. otherwise you gotta move upperarms/lowerarms for those to move.

why does moving hands and feet only work when ik chain is turned on for that limb?

<Are these client side or can they be shared perfectly fine even if the other person doesn't have it?> :crunchsquare:
