      Tags are used to attach external models to a model. Attachment means that the external models origin aligns itself with the models tag location and orientation. As the external model is parented to the tag (nested in tag space), any animation of the tag will also affect the external model.   Domain specific scripts tell the engine which external models to attach to a given tag. These scripts are either located in mapscript files (attachtotag command) or .skin files. Sometimes they are also hard coded.   An example use case is a hat model (defined separately) attached to a head model. This way, characters can be assembled with different looks without having to duplicate their model definitions. Tags therefore support reuse.   Another example use case is that of a tank turret model attached to a tank model. Instead of having a shooting animation (rotate turret left, shoot, rotate turret right) be recorded as vertex positions across several key-frames inside a single model, a tag can be used to control the shooting animation of a separated model. This safes memory, as the tags animation data most likely takes much less space compared to the animation data of the tank turret inside a single model.   However, reuse and memory savings are traded against loss in performance. Vertex positions of the external models have to be recalculated against the current frame tags location and orientation.

    Character Discussion

    By Thunder,

    Ok guys,

    Need an opinion here.. sitting and thinking of setting up the Characters(playermodels) of the Game.

    I think the easy way would be this:

    - one character for each team

    - modify character with different gears and weapons depending on what class they are( soldier, medic and so on)

    opinions?
