Post news RSS Ragdoll Physics Update

A while ago, David upgraded the old ragdoll system and linked it up to the rabbit guard mesh. So now when you push Alt-R (or Option-R on Mac) you can make ninja rabbits fall from the sky. By putting your mouse over a rabbit and holding right click, you can apply force and toss him around. I decided it was about time we featured our new and improved ragdolls in an informal video.

Be sure to watch it in HD.


In addition to the sweet dynamic shadows, you probably noticed that the ragdolls have been designed with realistic constraints. David was able to create those in-engine thanks to some advanced features in the rigging editor. In a future video I'll show how constraints can be applied to custom skeletons.(permalink)

Is it just me or do they kind of float down?
Everything seems to have a floaty feel to it ( physics ).

Other than that this is great.

Hehe... nice although I agree it was missing some beats in the background. I think once people start seeing combat, the pre-orders will really start to pick up. One step at a time though :)

I love this engine and editor you have created. I bet you have spent hours throwing those rabbits around. The normal map also makes the character looks brilliant.
