im trying to delete some limb from my object and when i run a loop in only deletes every other object. However by adding a second loop I seem to be able to eliminate more limbs but not all. Any help is appreciated thank you.

Are you trying to delete several lava limbs on one object or to delete the lava limb on many objects?

Looks like the problem is that when limbs are deleted the following indices are shifted back by 1 to fill the spot. Try looping backwards through the limbs:

Hi there.
Revenant chaos is right...when we remove a limb all limbs will change limb order.

Try this.

smerf,

Wow, you have 600 limbs on an object? I can't say I've ever had even close to that. Is this a level or something? Just curious.



So many games to code.....so little time.

Thanks guys, Wasnt expecting a a quick reply with a simple solution yet alone 4. Makes since though since limbs have to always be in order. Yes lbfn I am making an map generator that makes a 3d model from from a color map. Saves a map as a mesh, looks a bit like minecraft but its mere coincidence. 1024 limbs with animated texture runs over 1k fps atm pretty impressed with dbpro. Wanted a quick n easy way to generate rough models for a game and for the guys to all be able to use the same simple system nothing beets the speed.

I would go like this:
Check how many limbs of the required kind are there
Store that number
Use that number to cycle through the object limbs as many times as needed to delete them



Of course if you need to delete thousands of limbs from the same object the process might become lenghty

yeah once the model is loaded for the first time all objects of same type will be pulled from the original and a new object with limbs will be made for each type so all i have to do is draw a map and ut will generate and seperate my model into groups for each small map so theres easy control. i wouldnt ever scan limbs during gameplay.

This is something I can appreciate. Managing assets and optimizing.
