Rag doll physics galore! By Rogper (remember his video 'Orion Tear'?)

We don't get nearly enough good example of what the Blender Game Engine physics features can do with models and rag doll, so here is a pretty awesome example. #b3d Ultimate Stuntman!

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. This makes an excellent instructional safety video for construction workers and warehouse operatives everywhere :-)  Just need to add a list of injuries caused by each fall! 

  2. This was actually very fun to watch. The BGE is amazing, and you've shown that very well. I particularly liked the two ragdolls throwing themselves at each other; very entertaining :P

    It reminds me of Flatout 2, if anyone's ever played that.

  3. Thanks everyone!
    One thing I've noted is that, despite some sea-sickness, boats are actually very safe even when blown up to the skies :P
    A couple of rag dolls and a seagull (the cameraman)... but we had to edit that out XD

  4. Very cool video. The overall environment looked very well detailed and the collisions setups must have been very meticulous because they very tight, all the poles and even the boards inside the boat and all, well done. Nice dramatic music too. Do more of these please! 
    PS - Ragdolls actually love to be mangled like this- they consider it a form of affection and feel very lonely when no one takes time to abuse them ;)

  5. :) Camera animation is all about being true to one self...
    There is no easy way to apply armatures to rag dolls, at the moment, but it can be done. Endorphin besides armatures uses some kind of artificial intelligence.
