# Flamethrower model problem

Hello, i have a small problem with a model i’m modifying, it’s a flamethrower connected to a napalm tank via a hose.
The problem is, the hose doesn’t move, it stays still, static, and i did assign bones to the hose to make it move, but it still compiles like it’s part of a static model.

Here’s the QC:

Are you making a v_model or a w_model? I’m not good at modeling but maybe try exporting it as ragdoll,

"weapons\w_cstm_classified.mdl"

Looks like a world model to me?

Ah, didn’t see that.

Indeed, i’m making a world model

Well, i tried compiling it as a model, but the hose it’s still static

Try jiggle bones maybe?

It kinda works, it moves, but very slow and random…

My god!, i’m so dumb!, i didn’t realize that \$collisionjoints existed! XD
Now the model “semi-works”, i can move the tank and the dispenser separately, and the hose moves with them as well, but when i move them, the hose and the tank shake, as if they were “welded”

Well, i added more bones and it moves better, but it still behaves like it’s welded to itself, i guess it’s a sideeffect of being part of a single model

And, i think my question semi-solved itself!, thanks to everyone who helped me
