I'm trying to make ragdolls attach to posts in the Source Hammer Editor for Half-Life 2. The outcome would be something like what is in the Sandtraps chapter, with the Combine guard used as a dummy:
This is the best I could find without going in-game. Image source:
I did some research a while ago, but what I tried (which I do not remember what it was) did not work. The problem I am facing at the moment is how to actually attach the ragdoll to the post.
EDIT 1: I have tried using
phys_ragdollmagnet, but to no avail. I have also tried sticking a prop through the ragdoll and into the post, but that doesn't work either.
EDIT 2: I have figured out how to attach objects using
phys_constraintsystem. Now the problem is, I can't get them to stop dancing! They keep jiggling even though I have disabled the collisions on the ragdolls.
