Mount Points

Mount Points is a super simple tool for connecting objects together and managing those relationships

Overview

Unity has a pretty good system for connecting objects together. The problem is that if you have a skeleton, finding and managing those connections isn’t easy at all.

Mount Points is a super simple tool for connecting objects together and managing those relationships.

Mount Points manages the relationship, orientation, and scale for you. With Mount Points, you can simply drag two objects together and when their mount points get close, they snap together like magnets or Legos™. Drag the objects away from each other and they come apart.

Mount Points doesn’t try to recreate Unity’s hierarchy, it leverages and simplifies it.

New in version 2.0 is the ability to mount and manage skinned meshes. With the new user interface, you can set clothing up at edit-time and have them exist at run-time. Use skinned item masks to keep body parts from poking through your clothes.
