I have no idea where to put this, so I'm most likely putting it into the wrong spot. But I figured what I'm wondering about would require core scripting, I'd ask it here.
But would anyone know if it's possible to spawn a creature in the same place of your toon but still be controlled by the player along with their character? And whenever their toon jumps or attacks or what ever action, the spawned creature will follow the same actions if it has them. Basically like how morphing yourself into a creature would work, except you still retain your original character.
As to why anyone would bother with this is probably very low and non existent. But I reckon it'd be an easier way to go about adding in new types of armors, gear, and clothing. Such as my clothing mod I had done which required me to remove three existing geometry layers(cape and robe geosets and a hairstyle) to fit in the new clothing.
And if this could be accomplished, I would be making the clothing a creature instead of an internal geometry set of the character model, that way existing equipment wouldn't be lost because of the mod.
I'd like to be able to put something like this set of clothing in:
