Breaking ragdoll constraints in H17.5 July 29, 2019, 5:24 p.m.


Thanx for the quick reply !

I hope im on the right track

I placed a geometry wrangle into the multi solver and changed the Data Name parameter .
In my wrangle i put….

if (f@torque > 1000000)
@group_broken = 1;}

Now my constraints appear to be breaking .


Breaking ragdoll constraints in H17.5 July 27, 2019, 2:13 p.m.


So i have a crowd system setup with my ragdoll setup and working. I am now trying to break the contraints.
Im familiar with breaking constraints using the sopsolver in dops but i cant seem to get it working with my rogdoll.

This is the part in the manual i am stuck at ….

“The ragdoll_constraints node has a modify_ragdoll_constraints SOP Solver network attached that you can use to modify the constraints as part of the simulation. This is where you can delete constraint lines to detach limbs.”

I took this as i should just connect my sopsolver to the 3rd input on the ragdoll_internal_constraints node in my crowd sim, i then get the warnings . . .

“ Unexpected subdata found: sopsolver1_ragdoll_internal_constraints_constraint_geo_4.” (on the constraint network)

crowdobject - /obj/crowd_sim/sopsolver1: This data is attached to an unexpected parent data.” (On the sop solver)

Maybe im misssing where this “ modify_ragdoll_constraints SOP Solver network ” is mentioned in the manual.
