So far, characters in Moviestorm have walked and run in a wide gamut of variants and gaits, including backwards, but AFAIK not sideways.

 

Well, now they can sidestep left and right, although in discrete steps.

Thank you, although this one was pretty easy.

 

However, you know there's an intrinsic limitation with postures, and it's that posture durations, in contrast to gestures,  can't be modified, neither shortening nor lengthening them. I could understand shortening should be limited to some extent, but why not let the user to stretch the execution of a posture animation?

 

So I think I'll create some additional variants, basically offering shorter versions of the animations. I had planned to do the same with some other stock postures, such as the turning animations, too slow IMHO.

Sort of a gag, demonstrating the animation in action:

 

 

The stadium prop was not exactly at the same level than the real floor, so it looks like the feet slide below the floor surface. Actually, it's not the case.

 

The mod has been released and is available in two presentations:

- as an separate mod, named jm_Animations3, including only the animations for sidestepping

- as part of a recopilation named jm_PuppetAnimations01, including every puppet solo animation I've created so far.

I'm intrigued now and you have no valid excuses anymore, so go and get it done! :D

Great Demo...

I like that you choose to shoot the Machine. Runners 2 & 3 don't take loosing well and for me that's the great part. Showing Moviestorm has different emotions to use.

Shooting poor Cheap-o-bot was an afterthought included for the sake of political correctness; otherwise, shooting other guy might've annoyed some national from the country crossed out.

 

There's another references, but I guess even the most conspicuous will be missed by anyone unaware of some current events in Spain, and, for one thing, the recent history of the country.

Pretty good guess! Although I won't say it's Catalonia the only one who's heading in the wrong direction. I think what the current crisis has brought to the fore is something much more serious and it's being managed as clumsily and incompetently by our politicians as it can be.

Good Morning All...

It seems more and more Country's are having Leadership issues. As a Species I feel like we are not evolving very well.

P.S. Sorry for the Political Outburst. I feel better now.
