We came across a problem with this character that we did not have with any others: using only one straight shooting animation looked unnatural and weird when shooting up from the bottom of the arena or shooting down from the upper side of the arena. Soooo yeah, thats a problem and needs solving.
Above: shooting straight ahead animation.
We figured adding 2 extra shooting animations and mapping them to diferent angle ranges would be the best solution. One for higher angles and another one for lower angles, like this:
Sounds like a solution, lets try it out. First, lets make the 2 extra animations based on that first one:
Cool! Now we implement that in unitys blend trees and we get from this…
Its not the absolute perfect solution. In other 2D games people sometimes make the arm independent from the body and just rotate it with a pivot in the shoulder but we dont have that system ready and, even if we would take the extra time and effort to implement it, it would look out of context, as this is probably the only character that would need it. So for our case we believe this is the best solution. Looks good, works great.
Do you play overwatch? If you do what's your PSN?:D
I don’t lmao, I’m not a fan… I’ve played it, and it’s just like a regular ‘run around map and shoot people’ kinda game, like Call of Duty (to me anyway). I think a lot of people just play it for the characters, rather than the gameplay??
PAINT THE FUCKING SPLATZONE
YOU HAVE TO PAINT THE SPLATZONE TO TAKE IT OVER AND WIN
Multiple times today I watched in horror as my teammates left the splatzone to pursue the enemies and completely neglected to paint it at all…going so far as to heading into their half of the map to shoot them or whatever.
No. Dun do dat
Paint the goddamn splatzone to stop the timer and help us win.
The Tampa Bay Times has recreated the events of the Pulse shooting in an interactive 3-D rendering. The haunting map allows you to click through the events, one by one, as club goers make split second decisions to save their lives. Including Joe Galligan, who made a run for it during a break in the gun fire. (Warning: Not for the faint of heart.)
Bald Eagle with eaglet, in the last photo she looks agitated so I left.
Eagle with eaglets, I’m a sucker for any chance to photograph a bird in nest with young. I knew the conditions were lousy, and the distance was long but I took the photo’s and they turned out better than I thought. I took the photo’s from a ridge overlooking the Yakima Canyon Hyway and across the Yakima River, the sun was going down over the canyon so I was losing light and I had to shoot, ISO 3600. The map spot I did on Google puts the nest about 800m away, which is long even for a 600mm with 1.4 extender. What do you think.
