# ragdolls?

Okay, i'm playing about with physics. I seem to remember seeing some mention about ragdolls on the forum but can't seem to find it now.

Did people get this working?

Thanks.

You can make your own ragdolls with Create Hinge in the physics actions.

Easiest way is to give the torso the most weight and hinge the arms, legs and head to it.

Someone is developing a comprehensive solution to this in the form of a behavior which should be around soon.

Yay! Also I'm glad Rich is back to regular posting, you were inactive after you returned in the team

I think Rich is making bendy objects

Well this solves the problem I was having with making a rope.
(Create Hinge wasn't working at all, it just didn't connect the rope segments which were just 3x1px lines with the hotspot on the left and imagepoint "e" at the right (beginning and end). I made a few things and came up with:
"RopeSeg overlaps RopeSeg"
"RopeSeg('rid') = RopeSeg('rid')"
(It probably died here by not defining that I was trying to use two different instances of one object)
"RopeSeg: Set position to RopeSeg (image point "e")"
"RopeSeg: Create hinge to RopeSef (image point "e")"
The result:

A bunch of 3x1px lines lying around the ground.

Quite likely. Here's an example of ropes made with create hinge that I did a million years ago:

Each rope segment is a separate object though, not instances of the same sprite. Yes, it was a pain in the ass to make. Yes, it is terribly inefficient to do things this way. But it works.
