I'd like to build an interface whereby the user can attach various components and blocks onto a vehicle, this is then saved (as object/coordinate, rotation, scale values - in database) and can be used again later.
After looking into sockets I haven't been able to find a way of saying
connect ObjectA's SocketOne to ObjectB's SocketX with rotation Z and Scaling V for instance.
If that sounds infeasible to you (which it may well be), is there another way of scripting 2 objects to be "joined", so they act as one item when they move/animate?
Create ObjectA at 0,0,0 Create ObjectB is at 10,0,0 ObjectA.link(ObjectB)
I would like the sub objects to still be animated etc (like meshes connected to sockets can)
If anyone has any pointers they would be greatly appreciated.
