scale bone / set_scale ?
« on: November 08, 2014, 11:03:29 pm »

Is there any way to scale a particular bone/mesh? I know you can scale the whole model along any axis with set_scale() but I can't find a way to make it work on a subset of the model.

I have tried and failed miserably to get a simple coil spring to visually compress (using the nested move and rotate method), but if I can cheat and just scale it along a single axis that would probably work fine.

Anyone know if this is do-able?

  • It´s way too complex, dont let me try to explain !

Think that set-scale thing is just a spawn-event thing (for defining how the model should be big at spawn).

What's interesting is that you can actually scale the model on the fly in update_frame by calling set_scale on the geomob object. Makes for some pretty funny behavior if you want to play around with it. Unfortunately none of the nested components seem to support that method :/

It probably applies to all meshes in the model  :-\
