Motion of the character

Post by Yeremy » Thu Mar 16, 2006 10:58 am

Humm.... Don't you think that our character should be a bit slower? I mean the motion of the movement. Sometimes it looks a bit funny. I don't think that it's a problem to erease 2 or 3 frames from the motion :)

a new animation system is planned for the next version that will solve this and many different issues.

Uhm... when you keep the same framerate and remove frames the animation will only become faster. :?

haggard, I think fast movement should be done by public transport (boat, train, caravan, etc.) or by personal transport (horsies, huge salamanders, rowing boats, dragonbirds, etc.). And maybe boots of speed, a 'haste' spell or a magic jump (magically jump half a screen in the desired direction or a clicked spot) or something. Maybe scrolls of recal, townportals and such.
So not by unnatural basic walking speeds. Oh and maybe we could have stamina based running, like in Diablo II.

We are talking about the too fast animation sequence, not the move speed.

that sounds like a better idea...makes it funner for the simple fact that you would have to earn the haste spell and or find the animal of choice to transport you......i really like it. kind of like riding chocobo's. and as for the whole stamina thing....that was always annoying in diablo unless you can build it in stats

A chrono/time mage could maybe even cast haste on his steed.

It isn't certain yet which skills will eventually be in the skill system. But if we will have stamina-based running we might have a stamina skill as well.
