Virvius Update (07/13/21)


Log - 7/13/21

Notes: I worked on a lot of player animations in code, including weapon drop animations when selecting different weapons, holstering the weapon when against the wall, player/weapon bobbing and lerping. I had worked a lot of fixes with swimming and player foot steps, I rigged the level with tag specific collisions that determine the players footstep sound either on metal, wood, water or just the basic footstep sound. I reworked the UI for personal selection, you can choose different UI formats by selecting Minus or Equal Keys. pressing the Keyboard alpha keys now select weapons by ID. You can turn off V-sync in the game by pressing Y key to make it run much smoother if you have a good PC.
