When I pull up the menu and try to set it to lower body, it's simply blank and from the drop down there aren't any options to chose from. Can you please help me?

it's possible the physics and bones of the lower body don't have english names. If you're using english pmx editor it would show the english names I assume? Either that or there just isn't any lower body stuff to connect it to.

english naming seems to be the most likely problem from the ones you suggested. I guess I'll go rename them?

Well that's weird, I did every step, first it worked for me... but then after I did it on other models, the skirt stays stiff, even WITH these numbers.

-shrug- I would say, experiment with changing the numbers. Sometimes it just doesn't work out! It happens.

I followed every step, but then my model's legs start twitching in mmd

RandomDraggon Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Not sure why that would happen, seeing as the skirt has nothing to do with the legs, other than the leg physics. Perhaps try it again and make sure your body model is clean of all unnecessary physic bodies.

Thanks, I tried cleaning some of the physics and leg bones and it's legs started working again. I have no idea what happened to it.

Sometimes it's just the fact that there's all this unnessisary stuff there, and it messes witht he model. That's why it's really important to keep your models and parts clean of all extra physics, joints, material, or bones. Then it'll load faster, work better, and take up less space!

Make sure the bones, physics, and joints all connect to the waist bones, physics and joints! You can do that by selecting the skirt stuff, and seeing if it's mother section has the waist stuff selected.

You have to download and install the skirt plug in on it's own. It doesn't come with PMX editor. I don't remember where I got mine or how to fix it if it has installation problems though, seeing as mine didn't have any issues. 
Sorry.

if you did this on multiple parts on the model(s),  and added them to mmd to make an awesome vid, would it make mmd seriously lag? or would it be ok?

It all depends on how good your video card is on your computer. I've done what you're saying on mine and it's run perfectly fine. If you want another example of a model, there are some by montecore where they've used skirt-like physics on different places of the same model, like the sleeves and jacket, and it's fine.

It didn't work right. The physics are smoother, but they also go through the legs even with the proper groups unchecked. Yes, I do have physics in the legs and everything. ><;

Oh . Sometimes when I use skirt plugin, the leg still pass though the skirt No matter what I do.

:iconrandomdraggon:
RandomDraggon Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
That can be caused by a multitude of things.

A. Do the legs have a different set of bone physics? They need to have a separate set of physics if they don't. Try looking at other models to see what I mean if you're confused. 

B. Are the skirt and leg physics set to notice each other? Small PMD/X Physics Lesson by RandomDraggon

C. The skirt's physics may go around the leg's physics because they aren't held together properly. This is a iffy kind of thing to deal with and just requires some experimentation. I would say try looking at other skirts joints to see what their settings are and try to use those to find something you like.

Probably C. Aren't held together properly?

RandomDraggon Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Well check um all to be safe.

But yeah the skirt plugin makes these little middle joints, that connect the bone strings' physics and stuff. So they don't separate too far or whatever and cause the leg to go through. To figure them out I would just suggest experimenting with the joint's numeral inputs, or looking at other model's skirts that have those middle joints to see what they do with theirs to make it work.

it rigs the skirt for ya! You just gotta make sure it's all rigged to the lower body bone first otherwise it'll mess up

Sorry for bother you, but this plugin may also work in other things, for example in a long hair?  or just in skirts?
Reply
:iconrandomdraggon:
RandomDraggon Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
hm..... well I've used it for jackets, it's worked pretty well. I've used it to rig shirts that need to act like skirts. You can probably use it on sleeves too. 

I'm not entirely sure how it would work on hair but I mean we'll never know until we try it right? But no matter what, this shit's always in a circle shape, you're gonna have to delete any bone sets it gives you that aren't attached to the hair.
