Emote / Animation Menu
« on: September 24, 2017, 06:16:46 am »
I think it would be amazing if we could have an emote / animation menu that works similar to the music and phrase menus. Whether it be for formal events, realism, etc, it could add so much to the immersion of the game. To the devs, if you are watching this, please keep in mind that for these to be most effective, they would need to be able to be used while walking/marching.

Some possible emotes could be:
- Present the colors
  Infantry Example:

  Cavalry Example (When available):
Spoiler
[close]


- Hands behind back / At ease
  Example:
Spoiler
[close]


- Present arms
  Example:

- Sword salute
  Example:
Spoiler
[close]


- Present / raise flag
  Infantry Example:
Spoiler
[close]
  Cavalry Example (When available):
Spoiler
[close]
P.S. I noticed that the flag bearers have the little holder for where the flag would be inserted (for marching by my understanding) yet it is not used. Here is a picture of Holdfast vs. real life flag bearers.

I think the animation we have in the game now would be good for running with the flag, but it should be in the holder while marching.


- Wave flag
  Example (It's the only one I could find):
Spoiler
[close]


- Rest
  Example (Infantry enlisted man and officer):
Spoiler
[close]


- Plant flag
Spoiler
[close]



Random assortment of other images depicting other possible emotes (Will be updated as I find more pictures)

That's all I have for now! Please reply with any of your ideas (with examples if possible) and hopefully this feature can be added in the furture. ;)

Would be pretty cool, and I think it would fit the game well. +1

I think some other animations/positions as you said are welcome to the game.

What you are basically asking for is the ability to do Drill in game, which I think would be great! but the downside is that most nations had different drill. Personally I would more like to see things that could actually be useful in battle such as right dress (maybe you press a button and your character auto lines up with the person to your right with the correct spacing) and being able to press a button and sink footsteps with either the person in front of you or a drum beat. Either way I agree that Drill in game would be awesome but it is also quite low on the priority list.

That's a really good idea as well. I don't necessarily think anything specific to each nation would be necessary as that would take a lot of work. However, present arms, the sword salute, how the flags can be held seem to be similar in most countries. However, in regards to your idea of right dress and getting in step, I absolutely love it. Would work great with realistic linebattles, sieges, etc. Maybe the two could be implemented together :)
