We will be available both on this forum, and in the Agora Discord chat; so you’re welcome to post work-in-progress either here or there.
If you do post in there, it would be marvellous if you could also post here so as to gather all great content in one place for future Ragdoller’s to witness!
Final submissions are happening at the Agora Discord chat, stay tuned for a link.
Here’s what we’ve got for you this time around!
We’ve got 5 assets for you, courtesy of Agora and Jason’s mad Ragdoll rigging skills.
- Manikin - The simplest of the bunch
- Spiderman - Requires mGear
- Demon Gargoyle - Requires mGear
- Unit 01 - Requires mGear

Here’s what they look like!
All rigs are setup similarly, here’s how you can use the Woody asset.
To participate in this challenge, you’ll receive:
|Support||Right here on the forums|
To learn Ragdoll, have a look here for every resource currently available.
For the duration of this challenge, any and all participants are entitled to a free licence of Ragdoll Unlimited.
To use this licence, here’s what you do.
- Start Maya
- Open your Windows → General Editors → Script Editor
- Run this script:
import os os.environ["RAGDOLL_FLOATING"] = "agora1.ragdolldynamics.com:8011"
- Reload the Ragdoll plug-in
If the licence isn’t working, for any reason, try this alternative address.
If it still isn’t working, ensure that Maya has Internet access.
import socket try: socket.create_connection(("agora1.ragdolldynamics.com", 8011)).close() print("You've got internet") except Exception: print("Maya can't reach the internet")
If you’ve got internet access, but it still isn’t working, ensure the script above got called correctly by having Maya print the URL.
print("The URL is: %s" % os.environ["RAGDOLL_FLOATING"])
Still isn’t working? Let us know by posting to this thread.
The more technical user can put this into their
userSetup.py script, to automatically load the licence on Maya startup. The even more technical user can set the
RAGDOLL_FLOATING environment variable to this value. In both cases, you will be able to auto-load the plug-in without any further intervention.
That’s it! Agora is posting an announcement later today at which point I’ll update this post too. Stay tuned!
