Title: [+++] Being able to use animations when using uav/freecam. (frozen)
Post by: Dokt0R on 11 09, 2022, 12:45:44 am
As you all know, 'can't do animations while being frozen’. So, the suggestion is to remove or fix (call it whatever you want) this restriction for the simple following reasons:

- We often take screenshots for our selves using different kind of animations at different places.
- I do be asking other players to take screenshots, but I don’t find free ones to do it for me.
- If we as a group, or a couple of friends take SSes/Videos while animating, the one using uav/freecam anims doesn’t work, it’s kind of ruins the activity.
- I don’t see a reason of not allowing us to animate while being frozen. (Atleast while using uav/freecam only)

Note: I reported (https://cit.gg/index.php?topic=383996.0) it as a bug while it isn’t, thus I came up to suggest it here.

Waiting for your feedback regarding this, because, annoying. Thanks.

It is a very good idea, for when I want to take some photos with group mates. Positive  :tick:

yes, your suggestion is a good suggestion because I can't take photos while I'm in animation at events for the group  :tick:

Why not just do the animation then use /freecam?

It'll stop the animation as you get frozen.

This's a good idea that'll help us take screenshots without the need of others as it's kinda annoying that you have to stop using the animation when using /uav while one of its purposes is to take stylish screenshots.

My vote is Positive. :tick:

Using /uav after doing an animation won't work, as the animation will stop once you use the command.

I see that this will be useful, as sometimes people like to take some pictures for themselves using the UAV. As long as it will be added without any kind of exploits, I'll be positive.

When you use /uav and try to move somewhere, your character walks with your moving commands but does not go anywhere because it is being stuck to the ground when you use /uav.

I guess this thing what breaks the animation state. If is it possible to fix that issue/bug, it would be awesome to take SS/Videos with animations by usin UAV.  :tick:

Dang, this would be very useful. When I was helping out a friend by designing his squad's board, I wanted to take pictures of the squad's skins doing different animations. But I was struggling with the game's camera trying to position it perfectly; the screenshots ended up being fine. But it would have been much easier if we were able to use the UAV/Freecam to freely take screenshots of ours and others' characters without using our actual game camera. It would also be nice to stop seeing people moving around when they're using the UAV, so yes, freezing the player would be quite nice. I'm voting positive, don't see anything negative about removing the restriction.

It is been a while and I am still waiting for a reason why they disable the feature. I think this would be a good addition for roleplay think and if someone wants to make a video. I am voting positive.   :tick:

When I make thumbnails for my videos and I use UAV I'm unable to use animations so I can't make a good pose because of that limit. I will have to get another player wears my skin so I can take picture of him wasting so much time and effort for a small limit that can be removed so that won't harm anyone. +1

Your suggestion is unclear. May you elaborate in a different simpler way? What do you exactly suggest? Is it about using animations while using UAV?

Animation > UAV. and IDK if vice-versa works, but I don't think so. As you are already frozen when using the UAV, you can't animate at all.

Using an animation then using /uav will stop it. Also, you won't be able to use any animation while in the UAV (frozen), what he's trying to suggest is the ability to use the animation and not stop it when using /uav.

I understand. Thanks for the clarification.

However, I can’t understand, why we would get frozen while using this, like would it make a bug in case we animate and spectate in the same time? If so, then I guess it’s not possible to implement it, if on the contrary, so why not?

I’m neutral since I believe there is a reason for that, but in the same time, I would say that removing moving while spectating, this shows that the player’s bugged.

Neutral until further notice.

Voting positive as long as it’s not an intended behavior to restrict bug/exploits.

Good subject to take beautiful pictures. We were already able to take pictures with the uav while in animation before this anim with uav update, so it must be restored. positive

UAV was somewhat recently changed to be easier to non standard keyboard users to maneuver it. It uses movement keys rather than WASD. So it mirrors the running action. That would cancel the animation.

I'm positive regardless  :tick:

A very simple and clear suggestion from my point of view. A day before yesterday we suffered a little with it. On TR's birthday, we always had to let someone out to take the photo, because we can't use an animation while in UAV. I'm totally positive with it!
