Postby Galactus55 » Tue Apr 03, 2018 9:57 am

Hello Devs and All

Standing Flying position?

I know this question has been covered in an other thread tried to find it to bump up.
The look is very cool an powerful looking.
Anyways how hard would it be to animate flying in the standing position?
Thanks

wouldn't flight in a standing position just be " Hover " ...
but i think if you did slot it with some good Aug's it might be very useful when fighting ... it would be more stable...

We can animate flying in the standing position. It can be done.

But why?

The comment about it being Hover is correct...it looks a bit odd to my eye, although Magneto does pull it off with those crossed arms and the metallic plate he's standing on.

There could be issues with trying to use ranged powers from a standing position, since the animation would have to change to, say, hurl a fireball. But it is a solvable problem.

one of my favorite flight positions was that round disk. I forget what it was called. but once I earned it I used it all the time. Want it for Ace this time around too, and since we have a beach I'll be needing a surf board. (one that I can modify the color to).

I always wanted a standing flying position when go through missions. It seem more logical to be in that position fighting as a blaster or defender or controller. Hover is too slow to go through a mission when trying to keep up with the team. Also, being in the air has an advantage of not getting slowed by going through those things the ninjas threw onto the ground.

I also like the idea of a standing flying stance. Arms crossed standing flying could just look awesome and powerful.

It would be extremely cool to have a variety of flying postures to choose from at will! :mrgreen:
