This is currently a work in progress (as is the name)
The aim of this mod is again to totally push the scripting capabilities out of their comfort zone - though this time there were much harder problems to overcome than with Tetris
, including a bug with the attach function
This mod was delayed thanks to several other amnesia bugs, such attaching certain props (props with multiple bodies) crashing the game, as well as breaking attached props causing the game to crash when the parent body is moved. Furthermore, external tools have now been written to allow me to automatically calculate volume, centre of mass, radius, and bounding box of entities in amnesia, as well as automatically generating collision meshes for the katamari to use.
Currently the engine behind all the attachments, resizing, collision detection etc is nearing completion (i still have a few improvements to make) and i will soon be able to progress onto making levels.
Also i have a new youtube channel, if you were subbed to my old one (GuyNamedBob) to follow updates of this mod, i have moved to TheApjjm.

Test Level Demo (03/07/2012)
The mod now has props fixed so that they attach and rotate correctly, as well as the particle effects scaled and sounds added. Additionally, the camera is adjusted based on the height of the katamari.
Rotational Attachment Update (24/06/12)
Showcasing how props are now rotated when attached to the katamari, rather than all facing the same way. Also, glowy particle effect work in progress.
Attachment Demo (20/06/12)
Still working on this, it's just been more difficult than anticipated. This video shows where the mod is up as of the date in the link. (The disappearing props thing is already fixed).
