Still, some tutorials are welcome.. because I'm getting freaky errors using reactor to simulate complex clothing on my characters... :wall:

and the helpfile also sucks

reactor is good because of the Ragdoll... but clothing beyond flags flapping in the wind simply doesn't work out well using reactor... too bad...
Wonder how Blizzard could have done it. They used reactor too, and look what they managed.

Try to use a skin morph I am seeing this and there are alot of errors in the reactors, maybe combining different types of methods, it could work

clothfx is good, but see if you can also get ahold of garment maker for your clothing. it is just awesome, you make the pannels of clothing using splines (pannels as if you were to actually make them out of fabric) then it joins them together at the seams, you do a linky thing with your object, and it will move and sway and bend with your character as he/she/it moves. its some pretty funky stuff, and pretty easy to use
