    What is it?
    Ragdoll Mover is a tool that allows you to move ragdolls in a similar way to 3D programs. This also includes IK chains.

    Why should I use it?
    If you are fine with physgun, then maybe you don't need to use this. But here's a few key features of why you might want to use this in certain situations:
    -You can move ragdolls without limitations from the ragdoll physics; you can twist the ragdoll's head upside down without problems.
    -When you rotate a bone, it's child bones will rotate with it. So you can rotate the ragdoll's arm like you've welded the lower arm and hand to the upper arm. (Except, as mentioned, without physical limitations.)
    -By moving the ragdoll's root bone (usually the pelvis), you can move the entire ragdoll like it's a statue!
    -Contrary to bones moving relatively to their parent bones, there's IK chains. IK chains are used to keep certain bones in an exact position while moving, for example, the rest of the body. This is most commonly used with legs and arms.

    I'm still confused..
    Then this video might explain more than a hundred words.

    OMG THIS TOTALLY KILLS THE PHYSGUN
    I highly doubt so. And its not meant for that. I use this tool myself, and at some situations, the good old physgun is the best option. But this tool is most useful in situations where using the physgun ends up to be just messing around.

    Where do I download?
    Here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfile.../?id=104575630 (You need to be logged into steam)

    If you don't know how Workshop works, click subscribe, launch gmod, and it will download the tool.

    Are you going to keep updating this?
    I will keep fixing bugs, and I am currently working on refactoring the whole thing (aka version 2.0), but I have no idea when it'll be ready.

    If any bugs show up, report them here.
    That is all. Have fun posing!

    I can see this being a godsend for anyone who does gmod stopmotion.
    I love that you support custom IK chains.

    Probably the most useful tool available. Alot of times i would find myself occasionally working an hour on a single pose idea, this made things easier within just 10-15 fifteen minutes. Often times I wondered in the past if a system, even a tool like this was possible, to make posing as simple as rotating bones in a modeling program.

    I'd Recommend this tool to anyone who enjoys to make accurate, realistic poses. You have my Winner Rating.

    I'm gonna do updates from time to time to the Gmod 13 version of the tool. When I've got enough new features and less bugs and lag then I might make a full v2.0 release. Or v1.1, it depends.

    This is great; useful for posing ragdolls that have spastic bones that flail out of control. Nice work!

    I noticed your stand pose tool isn't working anymore in Gmod 13. Do you plan to update it soon, or should I go back to 12 for now?

    I'll update it soon. Also going to update ragdoll mover but apparently gmod 13 crashes when you use it, so thats a more annoying problem to fix than lua errors..

    I hope you get it working again on Gmod 13 Beta. I enjoyed using your Ragdoll Mover when the Physics Gun isn't as accurate.

    Awesome. I basically live off of this tool now, so much more precise and predictable than the physgun.

    Nice, but since I'm a noob to Gmod 13, do addons update automatically, or do I have to do that manually?

    Well I tried retesting them lately and I get alot of these errors. Even reinstalling Gmod13 and the 3 tools still show those error messages(Plus I can't get Ragdoll Mover and Video Assistant to work)

    Edit: Nevermind. Had an older version of the Ragdoll mover in the Gmod13 Beta folder*Hits head against wall*

    thank you for this tool sir but I have one problem it says to use the middle button to swap between slider and the rotation option which I can not do because I do not have a middle button on my laptop
    is a simple script alteration I can do or do I have to wait for a two button laptop friendly version?

    I'll update the tool so you can define the rotator button yourself.

    As of the most recent GMod update, the IK Chain modifier is glitched &:
    1: won't change from a single option.
    2: causes the Ragdoll Mover itself to cause errors on the used ragdoll after setting the IK Chain on it.
    May you please get this fixed?

    This used to work, but now.. not so much.

    When I use the ragdoll mover and select a limb I can move it but it won't let me release it and at the same time I get console errors.

    for people having conflicts, it may be just me, but removing certain sweps caused errors to stop.

    Update 152 seems to have boned this addon. The UI circles do not show up, and an error message occurs at the top left of the screen stating that Ragdoll Mover is creating script errors.

    Odd. I tested it out myself and it seems to work fine.
