Creature Sim's Creature Editor took a while to figure out. Dragging and dropping items onto another object is simple but trying to figure out how to get the part to rotate around said object was a bit tricky.
Each Part must treat the body as a base. While holding a part, the part will smoothly rotate around the base when in contact.
Achieving this feature in the Cell Editor was much easier because of the top-down mechanics.
Parts that are placed on the body, take on the "bodies" ID. In this phase of the game, the parts all use the same animation as the body. If the Body is "Idle", every part placed on the "body" with the same ID will also be "Idle". If the body attacks, all parts will also attack, etc
Some parts come with bioluminescent like type effects, molten flame effects, icy frost effects, and more!
Part ID's are used for a number of things but the main focus is to connect all parts to the body. The ID can also be used for Online Multiplayer aspects for the future.
Players have the option to rotate, resize, and texture any part individually or as a whole.
One of the biggest problems I've come across so far was figuring out how to go about creating a spinal manipulating addon for the "Body" and "parts"
If the process is too complicated or can possibly take more then 30 days, I'll usually find another way to achieve the technology BY ANY MEANS!
Here is the Spinal Manipulation tool. This feature can be added to any rigged mesh, from parts to the body, to even senses like eyes and ears.
I was able to acquire an exclusive deal with the developers at Kami Games. You can check out their content here
Even though this tool is unique and fun to use, I found that many players actually struggled to make decent looking creatures using the SMT so I gave players the option to choose a pre-existing body type if they don't like using the spinal/body manipulation tool.
