(Check out the wiki for more details)

- One-click process to create physically simulated bone chains:

- Bone tied collision volumes to collide with the chains:

- Add several colliders at once in a few clicks:

- Several parameters to adjust the physics behaviour. Select several bones to put the same parameter values to all of them:

- Visual helpers with fully customizable colors in the 3D viewport:

- Several amplitude constraints profiles to have more control over the bones' maximum rotation:

- Wind simulation to add some external motion to the chains:

- Parameter keyframing for advanced custom behaviour:

- Simulation baking to standard keyframes in one click:

- A powerful curve editor to fine-tune physics parameters and wind behaviour:

If you need to bring more life to your rigged character parts/assets, Swingy Bone Physics is just what you need!

History: As I was watching several technical presentations from big Japanese studios (Square Enix, Capcom, Bandai Namco etc), I noticed that bone chains were used in a lot of productions for hair, accessories, cloth etc. However I couldn't find an equivalent bone based solution in Blender that had everything needed so thought it could be very useful to make one!
