OFFICIAL: Player Animations


So as most of you know, our character animations are pretty atrocious! That is because our player animations currently use all of the sequences from Day of Defeat: Source. That means all of our current animations are actually made by Valve for Day of Defeat: Source and were not meant to be used in this way.

The reason we did use them, though, was because they were included by standard with the Source SDK, and we've never had a dedicated player animator... Until now.

We have some really sweet new player animations in the works to replace all their current standard behaviors, making them move much more realistically and NOT like they have a stick up their butt.

Our zombies are also getting new animations based on motion capture data, which should greatly improve their visual quality AND their behavior. Zombies can't perform actions they don't have animations for, so expect them to be more versatile in the future!

Oh my frickin' god. I was just about to make a thread about the silly and awkward running animation, but then I saw this news. Amazing news, I'm really excited and when I think I can't love this game even more, you guys prove me wrong. Keep it up.
