Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Locomotion system design approach


I'm starting to implement a locomotion system for my character, and after reading/watching lots of tutorials about blendspace/state machines, I'm stil hasitating about the way to go:

What I want is basically this: - Character rotation movement is only 0/45/90 etc (degrees) - Lateral movement for left and right only (for speed under a certain value) - For backwards, steps facing forward when slow speed, and then rotate 180 deg. and full run animation. - Run in all directions.

Now, I could make a prototype with a blendspace and its more or less working. Problem is,I need to change specific animations of blendspace (i.e. Idle animation, or lateral steps animation) depending a game state (variable x). Also would like to implement momentum effects when changing directions. I read over there sate machines don't scale very well, so how should I implement it ? Multiple state machines? No state machine at all?

Thank you
