Replacing Lara with Rollingball
This is something I have wanted to do for a while now.

AFAIK This not TRNG. As I'm only using wadmerger and strpix so far to do this.

Being able to control a rollingball or other objects would open up a new range of possibilities for puzzles. The next step if this is possible, would be to introduce a missile that explodes on contact with the target.

For now though, let's stick with the rollingball.

I have already replaced mesh 0 of Lara's model with a rollingball, I then replaced animations with that of the rollingball animation. So far, animations are glitching and not working. So I need help working out how to make it work. I'll put a video below to give a visual on where I'm at.

As you can see I've inserted the animations into the corresponding slots. So the animations for still->roll is in slot 0, continuous roll is in slot 6, rolling->still is in slot 10. Ideally I would control the ball purely along an X and Y axis so you move it either forward or left to right without turning but for now, just getting the roll animation to work would be fine.

Why do you want to control a rolling ball :D?
A good idea should be a rolling ball shape vehicle, similar to Fortnite one :)

I haven't heard that idea yet. The remote controlled crane object has been mentioned though.

I want a rolling ball for puzzles. Maybe a crystal you have to manoeuvre through obstacles in order to Lara to collect it from the other side or to use for pressure pads. Pushable objects are a slow way of doing this so being able to control a fast moving rolling ball would be a different way to carrying out physics based puzzles.

Being able to control a ball object opens up the possibility of controlling other objects like a missile. Using TRNG, you can have objects to explode upon collision so you could essentially guide a missile around obstacles in order to reach an otherwise unreachable switch.

If you change the Lara object then how could you have both Lara and your rolling ball/missile in the same level?

It might make more sense to try and edit a vehicle maybe? Although I think the MGS style missile might be easier to do than a rolling ball. A crossbow bolt turned into a missle with slowed speed that the player can steer would be amazing. Or controlling the mechanical scarab beetle as a remote control exploration robot...

I think you'd be better off asking in the TRNG forum - there are scripts that can move objects along an axis but in all honesty I think you'd need a plugin.

My suggestion is to completely discard Lara's default animations, animate all the rollingball's movements and script them, so you have a complete new control system.

I've done this recently and it works (it was not for a rollingball tho lol)
