Can you stop with the "read as" mumbo jumbo? You only use it as an excuse to go low res on stuff (which is something where I'm not sure if you're sometimes just doing it to mess with me.). Well it still reads like bla bla bla
. Lemme tell you something you limp tailed molerat: Grass textures back in the 90s still read as grass textures... and no one wants to see them ever again!
Since when are we all up in here talkin' all 3d developery anyway? Don't make me invert your intestinal vertices
. You are just jealous of my clearly superior animating skills...and clearly psychotic obsession to retexture everything. One of these statements was not in jest. Can you guess which one? Can you find Waldo? How did Waldo never get beat the stripes off his socks for dressing like that in public?
Quote: "Part of it is gameplay balance, I suppose. I generally disliked how slow my old reloads were and seeing how the assets mostly proliferated through Unity MP games (not so much a great number of dev. uses but the greater number of player uses). My goal was to make these more viable for that genre ( I was initially really optimistic about MP in GG but alas, it is awful). "
Alright, okay, fine
. You are selling these and you are making a business decision based on what previous sales have shown you.
I already had this discussion with Bugsy "Readable" Bizurker a bunch of times so I keep this short and spicy.
is the mid-level, mid prize, mid twenties prostitute of game engines. It can do most things well, is easy to get behind and has zero personality. Plus there are way too many people using it and most of them aren't pleasant. (Unlike me, I'm spiffing!...obviously) GG on the other hand is like that cute trailer park lass that sells herself short, makes tons of bad decisions and doesn't look too hot unless you take the time to see her inner beauty. Can you stay with us in the trailer and not cater to the unity people. I have a completely illogical and unjustified dislike of them and want you people to agree with me!
games are likely never going to be that much of a thing in GG. Not a fan any way. Especially not Counter Strike, amirite Bugsy?
I did have some fun with y'all in the GITS game though.
. Suffice it to say that I have always been a fan of immersive gaming. I just love it when reloading a gun takes just as long as it does to reload its real life counterpart. I like it when there is a sound that suggest "grabbing" something from a pouche. Those handful of games that go the extra mile to actually drop the discarded magazine on the ground can all line up for a big, smelly wolfy hug. Seriously, why do so few games do that??
Quote: " The thing that I think tripped me up though is that I have a bias of dropping mags on the ground since they don't spawn in the world."
Barely any games do that.( I remember adding a sound to simulate that for the "Thanatophobia" mini game I did once. ) If you'd add a chunky sound to suggest a mag landing on screen I'd just be 100% on board with that.
Quote: " So, adding a second while the player character fishes out a magazine simply isn't an option."
Just look into your soul. You know there is! If more people in gaming would add that extra second to reload animations, we could solve all the worlds problems in just one death match.

you are talking to the man who once actually
used the "2nd amendment" gun font in a text to 3d generator for just that. I'm sure you'll deliver something vastly superior...and not one of my proudest moments.
As someone who was once mesmerized for an entire evening watching weapon reload animations on youtube (cue joke about rattling with a key here, you unoriginal barbarian) I have sufficient expertise to say that I love it. Allow me to just mention here that I have noticed many kids joke about shoulder pouch reloads to look like the player takes the magazine out of his mouth. Perhaps this is something you might consider.
Jupp! My job here is done. I assume you are all bedazzled and amazed that you had the time to read my thoughts on this topic here in your lifetime. I shall now go to bed. All of you who have been reading through all this wondering "is Wolf drunk"
shall know that I am indeed not which you can tell by the lack of pictures of corgis with cute party hats in this post. I'm just of the opinion that this weapon pack is so awesome (and I do mean to use this word as I know pretty much the entire lowpoly-gameready 3d model store world) that all feedback is like critisizing Connie Carters body. Wholly unnecessary and quite possible blasphemy.
