A simple question, and please forgive me if it is a silly one:
Let's say I made myself a cute little voxel character that is animated using PicaVoxels wonderful frame system. I am planning to use these frames with mecanim.
Now I want to add something to this, such as an item, a hat that bops with every movement, that kind of thing. Is it safe to simply add this to the volume under Frame, and then use the animation frame as normal?
~Voxelvolume with script
~~~ADDITIONAL GAME OBJECT
~~~ADDITIONAL GAME OBJECT, different positioning
Test wise, it seems to work just fine, allowing me to animate with voxels while also using smaller rotations/movement on a granularity you can't normally do with voxels. (Bit of a cheat)
IF this would work, there'd be a ton of benefits, such as...
- Animated items for attacks/Use animations
- More flair for animations while mostly sticking to the voxel style, since now you can even do things like small headbops, a shifting tail etc, without making a fully rigged model
- Colliders could even be added, so only specific frames have the "hit enemies" collider, allowing for really neat possibilities to have collisions be fully and perfectly hitbox based
Is this fine, or is there something with this idea that really can't work?
