The "vngen_attach_modify_direct" Function

Syntax

vngen_attach_modify_direct(name, id, x, y, z, xscale, yscale, rot);
ArgumentTypeDescription
namestringThe ID of the attachment parent character
idreal/stringThe ID of the attachment to modify (or keyword all for all attachments)
xrealThe horizontal position to display the attachment, relative to the parent character
yrealThe vertical position to display the attachment, relative to the parent character
zrealThe drawing depth of the attachment, relative to other attachments only
xscalerealThe horizontal scale multiplier, where 1 is default
yscalerealThe vertical scale multiplier, where 1 is default
rotrealThe attachment rotation, in degrees

Description

Applies a new position, orientation, and scale to the input entity ID directly, outside the qScript loop.

All modifications made with this script are permanent and will persist until another modification is performed.

As this script is not an action, care should be taken in deciding when and where to execute it. If both *_modify and *_modify_direct scripts are executed together, whichever is run last will override the other.

Example

var mx = window_mouse_get_x() - (window_get_width()*0.5);
var my = window_mouse_get_y() - (window_get_height()*0.5);
if (mouse_check_button(mb_left)) {
vngen_attach_modify_direct("John Doe", "attach", mx, my, 0, 1, 1, 0);
}

This will map the attachment to the mouse, allowing the user to click and drag the attachment to a new position on the parent character.
