Terraria-esque Segmented Snake?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Tue May 21, 2013 12:47 am

Does anyone know how to make something like this?



Specifically with the linked body parts. Basically, the head moves and then all the body parts follow, with each body part maintaining a separate rotation that links each segment.

1) Set position
2) Pin Rope Style

There is a example in your construct 2 example folder.

Yeah, it's actually not too difficult. A little knowledge of loops will help you quite a bit ;)

Oh..I totally forgot about that example.
What if I'm creating the objects on runtime? Do I just have to place them side by side like that before I pin them?

Also, rope pin doesn't seem to have any sort of rotation.

I don't think that's dynamic.

The rotation is not a problem as you can call the right angle by a expression on a loop, presupposing you are doing as the construct 2 example.

Edit: In fact it gonna be better looking than your img example.breackzin2013-05-21 16:21:38
