Useful Add-ons for Ragdoll Posing


New Member
I've noticed that the devs occasionally like to pose ragdolls or ragdoll people and pose them :p and so I'd thought I try it out in single player myself. In playing with the posing process in Gmod, I found some very useful and time saving tools for posing characters and I thought these would be a nice addition to Yukitheater for devs to play around with.

Here are some useful tools I found on the workshop to help improve character posing as a more precise method of moving characters compared to the physgun. The ragdoll mover alone gives one some powerful yet simple tools for to positioning characters either as a whole or single body part and you can also still use the physgun with this tool too. It replicates some of Autodesk Maya's translate tools quite well and I loved using it on my first gmod character pose. (I've only animated in Maya prior to gmod.)

The standing pose addon is a good alternative to trying to pose a limp body around with the physgun.

P.S. I might add to this post if I find any more useful tools like an alternative facing posing addon, etc.
