Hi, does anyone have an idea on how to use this cool script? this would really save the trouble on animating clothes and hairs. A tutorial would be highly appriciated. http://sfmbox.com/sfmphys/

This script/module for SFM is broken ever since the python update, so it doesn't work anymore. From my own uses of this it probably wouldn't be useful for what you're trying to do. so until its updated or fixed, its pretty much dead.

I'm also assuming the script uses collision models to do the calculations right? So if the model doesn't have a collision model, the script is useless. Being that SFM modellers often don't add in collision models you'll be limiting yourself already. Besides that, collision models are not often built for hair or clothes (since there is only a small amount you're allowed to use for a model). In the end you'd be better off learning how to set up jigglebones for them (which may or may not end up taking more time than just animating them manually :P ).

Actually it uses bounding boxes, thats why all the videos that use it are of big clunky objects jumping around. Even the ragdoll test by the author is well........ mushy [center:1y58kvcw][youtube:1y58kvcw]-GgTciTTUs8[/youtube:1y58kvcw][/center:1y58kvcw]
