I made a quick walkthrough on how to set up rigid follow nodes since its a great help to add buttons etc to work with dForce. :) Click on pictures to see larger.

 

This builds up on Josh's video on rigid follow nodes so watch that first

    Well done and helpful! Thanks, Mada.

  • thanks a lot for this tutorial.
    instead of creating, it helped me identify and delete those pesky hard-to-delete Rigid Follow Nodes.

    very helpful indeed. :)

    How can you save prop attached to a rigid follower node for a character (without saving the character)?

    The idea is that the prop shall attach to same area for any character type, e.g. across all G8F.

    I have tried both smart prop and wearable preset, but I am not able to load the rigid node and the prop therefore ends below the character on the floor.

    Wearables preset should work with the node and parented item checked.

  • Hi Mada :) I have an outfit with rigid follow node on his stomach. That is a bigger item. I would like this item with dforce to use. But in every simulation exlodes everytime - only when the rigid item is not on his place (translate on X direction with 50centimeter). What can the problem be?

    Is there intersection between the node object and the clothign being dForced?

  • no - but my problem already solved: on display tab turn off the "visible in simulation" and that's OK :)

    Question:

    I'm trying to create a rigid follow node on an OBJ object which I imported into Daz.  I select a face, and create the rigid  follow node from selected.  However, the Rigid Follow Node appears way ABOVE the entire object.  What should I check for?

    Thanks,

    Causam

    NVM, I found the problem.  I had to use the transfer utility to fit the item to a figure.
