Different playerskins for different classes

Post by reegad »

Hey

Has anyone had any success defining a player skin to a class and not the entire team?

The only way I can think of is building soldiers entirely out of kitparts ... but that would come with some limitations I would guess. I have not tried skinning animated meshes with kitparts though so maybe you can get kitparts to animate with the skeleton. At least when it comes to stuff like the joints like knees/elbows etc. You can already attach normal kitparts to the skeleton and they'll move with the bone they are attached to.

What about using the player.active command and player.kit? I believe you could trick the client into displaying different skins based on the picked kit.
