Axe Engine

Posted Image
This engine uses a ragdoll effect to create a nice fighting engine. It features motion planning on the rotation
of the weapon and creates body gestures to go with the movements. I've also added a collision system.
Anything that the weapon hits is destroyed "only" when you swing downward in the slash, or when you thrust
forward in the stab. This allows the weapon to touch objects and do damage to them "only" when you attack it,
rather than whenever the two objects touch.

Credits:
Glen - Ragdolls, Axe Motion Planning, and collisions
NoodleNog - smooth rotation script
Mordi - wobble script


Glitches:
-There's no head. I know. I didn't make one. The example is not about the head.

I love it! it's the exact thing I'm working on but it's so complex when you're animating with variables...manual changes etc.
if only there was an easier way.

congrats on an awesome example, and thanks.

Thanks, yea hopefully I'll get this engine optimized and simplify it some more. I'm trying to make an engine that can easily be implemented into any game with accurate movements and swinging effects. If I make another version it will include walking movements. Possibly in the form of a platformer.

Not possible. It uses pro version features to accomplish the effect.
