Hey Roblox developers! I’ve created a plugin for this feature request.
This is meant to act as kind of a temporary replacement in case this feature doesn’t get added (or added quickly).
How do you use it?
Select your root part, select the parts you want to attach to it, and click the connect button!
What does keep selection do?
Keep selection ensures that anything you had selected before remains selected (not including parts). It’s enabled by default and your preference saves.
What about auto connect?
Auto connect determines root parts based on intersections! Each intersecting group of parts will be connected.
The red parts and green will be connected to their corresponding colors. This is because the red parts intersect each other, but green parts don’t intersect the red parts.
This is especially useful when building animations from multiple meshes and colors. If you have separate pieces to your mesh which are made up of different colors and don’t intersect they can be automatically resolved using this button.
The make rig button is pretty simple too! Click it and it creates an AnimationController in the Models and Folders you have selected.
