Ragdoll July Challenge

Download and Licence

Here’s how to get started with your creation.


Step 1

Download and Install Ragdoll Dynamics, if you haven’t already.

Step 2

Copy/paste and run this script in your Script Editor, in a Python tab.

import os
from maya import cmds
from ragdoll import ui as rui, interactive as ri

text = """\
Start a new scene and activate Ragdoll Unlimited \
for the July July 2022 Competition?
"""

if rui.MessageBox("Activate Competition Licence", text):
    os.environ["RAGDOLL_FLOATING"] = "july.ragdolldynamics.com:8003"
    cmds.file(new=True, force=True)
    cmds.unloadPlugin("ragdoll")
    assert not cmds.pluginInfo("ragdoll", query=True, loaded=True), (
        "Had trouble reloading Ragdoll, try restarting "
        "Maya and running this script again"
    )
    cmds.loadPlugin("ragdoll")

    ri.welcome_user()
else:
    cmds.warning("Cancelled, nothing changed")

Your Maya will now have a fully loaded Ragdoll licence until you restart Maya.


Step 3

Start making something, and create your own thread in the new Competition category.

I’ve made a little example contribution to illustrate how to get started. :blush:

For any questions, feel free to post here or start a new thread under the Help Category.

Enjoy, and let’s go!
