cgmRigs Update -mDrake Body Alpha!

We’re going to try to structure updates where possible so they can be public. Forum and Asset pages will be team only.

We’re not quite ready to launch subs until we have at least one rig ready. ETA is a few weeks after which you’ll be able to sub or just buy access to a given rig. It’s also helpful to keep the initial test group smaller and expand after we work through the initial kinks. Thanks for understanding.

Meanwhile On the Forum...

Hey Team, we’re starting out and we need to start getting some feedback to help determine direction. Here’s some current threads for the team.

404 error? Just means you’re not on the cgmRigs team. 

Rigs Update


  •  Body Rig Alpha is released
  •  Setup
    • Re-templated with new MRS setup
    • Rough body only rig complete.
    • Plan to do face by hand for the sake of speed. Will be tackling next week.
  • Model
    • Like the model? Check out Dan Eder‘s work and maybe give him a call (hint!)
    • Got rough final mesh from modeler. Provided notes.
    • Expecting next pass over the weekend
  • Pistol
    • Found free to use Glock 17 model we’ll be using for a weapon. Dan did a custom texture.
    • Probably won’t be setup initially in scene as we’re trying to finalize how we want it setup for Unity.


Sean D won our little challenge last month and so we’re doing adolescent Griffon Proxy rig at his request. Here’s the design he provided. He asked us to clean it up a little so Josh is gonna tackle this over the next few days to test MRS before moving back to face on mDrake while you all play with the alpha release.
