Ragdoll Mover

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 this video might explain more than a hundred words.

OMG THIS TOTALLY KILLS THE PHYSGUN
I highly doubt so. And its not meant for that. I use this tool myself, and at some situations, the good old physgun is the best option. But this tool is most useful in situations where using the physgun ends up to be just messing around.

Where do I download?

If you don’t know how Workshop works, click subscribe, launch gmod, and it will download the tool.

Are you going to keep updating this?
I will keep fixing bugs, and I am currently working on refactoring the whole thing (aka version 2.0), but I have no idea when it’ll be ready.

If any bugs show up, report them here.
That is all. Have fun posing! :v:

Nice!

Whar did you fixed?

Look awesome!
Will download and try it out when I get the time for it!

I can see this being a godsend for anyone who does gmod stopmotion.
I love that you support custom IK chains.

you should fix the issue with the console getting spammed with unknown command rgm_iskeydown when playing multiplayer.

Should already be fixed in v1.1

found it

when I move some of the models I have (for instance the halo reach rag doll) when I try to move a specific appendage the whole model just vanishes.

Probably the most useful tool available. Alot of times i would find myself occasionally working an hour on a single pose idea, this made things easier within just 10-15 fifteen minutes. Often times I wondered in the past if a system, even a tool like this was possible, to make posing as simple as rotating bones in a modeling program.

I’d Recommend this tool to anyone who enjoys to make accurate, realistic poses. You have my Winner Rating.

Yeah, Ive heard of this problem before. I still have no idea on how to fix this :frowning:
But I’ll look into it.

I’m gonna do updates from time to time to the Gmod 13 version of the tool. When I’ve got enough new features and less bugs and lag then I might make a full v2.0 release. Or v1.1, it depends.

This is great; useful for posing ragdolls that have spastic bones that flail out of control. Nice work!

Love

This tool works really good with the HAT animation mod.

great tool I got it. thanks

I wished you could have released this tool 2 years ago. very useful, thanks.

This problem? How to resolve?

I don’t know. I’ll look into it.
Are you using the latest gmod version?

I use Gmod 11!

I noticed your stand pose tool isn’t working anymore in Gmod 13. Do you plan to update it soon, or should I go back to 12 for now?
