Description:

Here is a futuristic combat jet i have designed, modeled, textured, rigged and animated for our game-project.

I inserted control bones for the easy control of the moving parts of the plane,

as you can see in this gif animation.

All animations are controlled by only one action, its the same method as i used for the hand model rig.

Armature control:

Select the special shaped bone, hit the S-Key and then move the mouse, to roll the animation.

Here is a small tutorial about how to setup custom Bone Shapes.

I made this tutorial, because i was asked where to find the arrows with the ball inside :)

    how do you use the bones to control the animations is there a special mode or tool?

    Written April 18, 2013

    There is no special mode or tool just one action, some TrackTo and a lot of Action constraints for the Bones, all possible animations are saved in one action (Aircraft_roll) and the animations are driven by constraints. When you scaling one of those control-bones, the animation will be played for all bones with the action constraints which have been assigned to the control-bone. Check all green bones, i take a while to understand how it works but it is an awesome way to animate.

    I move the amature bones with bone-constraints and an action where the animations are saved in (Aircraft_roll).

    In this scene is a sun-light with [sky] enabled, select the sun-light and deactivate [sky], the background color you want to use will be rendered correctly.

    Nice! One question though, is there a way to move the whole model at once?

    Edited May 18, 2014

    Hi Narrow Edge, I never moved the whole model.

    I tried to move it and have seen what happens, some parts of the jet were not parented.

    Now I have fixed it, I added two empty objects to move the whole model at once.
