currently you cannot access the angular drive spring or XYZ drive spring of configurable joints with set property.

i've been using cwmanley's configurable joint action he made, its been a lifesaver for my project but it can only access the first joint in the inspector menu on a rigid body. thread here: http://hutonggames.com/playmakerforum/index.php?topic=13436.0


if there was some way to access the drives of multiple configurable joint properties on any given rigid body it would really alleviate some consistent problems i'm having with my project.

Hi,

 ok, Very good point actually, I need to go over all joints action and enable targeting a Component directly not just the first one on the GameObject target.

 so I have taken the two actions from the forum and added this option to target a specific component. I also fixed typos so watch for the settings they may have changed.

I'll need to give this a serious pass because many properties are missing. Let me know first if these actions are suitable for you to target multiple components on a single GameObject and if it's ok I'll cover the whole spectrum of properties for conf joint.

Bye,

 Jean

the 2 actions you've just added work perfectly so far. all of the movement in my game is entirely joint dependent so its been difficult at times to get the results i've wanted. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELdY7S5R7Z4 

now i can go through my systems and fix them with these actions, thank you.

yes, its 100% playmaker. my game probably wouldn't exist without it.

i'm glad you like it  :) its the game i've always wanted to make. so far there aren't any mechanics i couldn't implement exactly how i've wanted them, playmaker is just what i needed.
