MOAnimation Design Contest [Winners Announced]!


Recommended Posts

I think a fun idle animation for the moa to have would be something like chickens scratching for food, which quickly becomes something like the following video. The moa could find a bug, a cloud of infestation, or maybe a dead grenade (depending on what tileset you're on), then would freak out as it tries to investigate its finding.

Animation where it does a little silly slither along the floor and shakes after you get a: multi kill, upgrade a mod to rank 10 or achieve something of greater significance, like it's so excited it can't control it's body. Little cute sound to add as well. Best way to explain my idea is this video of our little bub doing his "swim" through the rug 9 seconds in. Sort of just lays there for a bit at the end and slowly gets up. Not entirely sure how possible this might be for a MOA though.

I'd like them to sit like a chicken sitting on eggs. First they'll start pecking or looking at the ground  and do a full turn before relaxing down to its nesting position.  When it's time to move, they'll just jump back up and follow the operator.

Title: "MOAFacePalm"  (MOAFacepalm)

Description:  When you're Tenno doesn't behave in a fitting way.  MOA will use this action when a Tenno fails on a check.  

Steps:

1. MOA starts on both legs

2. MOA picks up leg and foot and rises it to meet the head.

3. Foot rests on head

4. MOA shakes head

5. Foot/leg is returned to the ground

 

Example:

Note: The wrong foot was lifted up in the picture, but the idea still stands.

Make the Moa "sneeze"

It pulls back its head a little bit, twitching ever so slightly. The head rushes forward and the feet pop off the ground just a bit to emphasize the strength of the sneeze. A small particle cloud of the Moa's energy color puffs out of its front.

The animation could occur whenever the Moa/Player has been stationary for some time.

Thought I'd give this a go. A simple idle animation where the MOA stretches up on the tips of its toes, waivers a little bit, losing balance a little, and then squats down in a more stable position and shakes its "head" back and forth.

I would very much like to see a MOA do the “Hopak,” or the Cossack dance. Their beautiful legs demand it. Doesn’t loop of course, maybe dance for like 2-3 seconds maximum before returning to idle.

I think a good scenario for this animation to be used is either while a player is using a dancing emote, or you clear a wave of Defense. Have it be a nice celebratory gesture.

Here’s a Wikipedia link for references: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hopak

They kind of look around, like a cat watching a fly, left, right, up, REALLY up, then down. Down more, and then rotate on their hip axis a full 360 degrees while their feet never come off the ground. Like a drinking bird without a stopping point
