Wisp walk animation change

Recommended Posts

Wisp still uses her feet in a few animations such as holding melee, using a zipline, hacking, during Aiming down sights, going operator (maybe make wisp still float),

Is Wisp's "walking" animation suppose to be different when she's holding a melee weapon versus a ranged weapon?

I was playing her and she "glides" when holding a ranged weapon, but "walks" when holding a melee weapon.

Yeah, this is basically a feature rather than a bug.  It's a limitation of the fact that they share animations between warframes to save on development time and resources.  They made new walking and running anims for Wisp, while unarmed and when holding most ranged weapons, but not for anything else.  She also runs while using the Atomos, and I think the Sonicor as well.

She runs/walks when you fire them, mostly because of its "Iron man hand beam" weapon nature which is unique to them. Same thing for the Gammacor series

So I don't know if this is a bug or if it is intended, but it's basically that. While in melee mode, Wisp walks/runs instead of floating.

I'm going to post it in bug report too, just in case.

It's just that all warframes inherit the same melee system, which includes animations. Even when I got a bug on Titania where I was able to use normal melee attacks in razorwing, I observed standard melee animations that looked weird. Just Wisp does not have at the moment unique animations for melee and uses a standard template. This is not a bug. It's just a stub and I think they know about it.

If nothing else, it'd be nice if she had (spectral) feet or something. Her suddenly not floating wouldn't look remotely as bad if it didn't mean she was somehow running on barely-present burned away stumps.

Cuz you can't both whip Vor and wag your assets simultaneously. That'd be kink overdoze.

Or DE could make the animations that use legs and feet to be disabled from the waist down, and keep upper body animations only. At the very least, her IDLE melee animation should be with her floating.

Yeah they said full custion animation set but they have never changed melee walking/running also when your standing in place, aiming, and rotating your feet dont move at all.

I strongly dislike the way she looks "walking" with melee. I think she should be made to float around while having melee equipped the same way she does with guns equipped. Watching her walk is awkward and looks wrong.

yes its true, its also been mentioned a few times. From what I know it would require DE to modibfy all the stances and moves so she wont need to use her non-existant legs. Its just seems like too much work for a little thing

Yeah, except that they literally stated that they wanted to do that, but the additional animations would take too long, so they abandoned it.

Sad day, but I understand. Shame Wisp is so well geared for melee, I'm doing her weird stumpy run all the time.

I know, right?

But think about it; a ‘walk’, ‘run’ and ‘idle’ animation to match each of the different melee types (there’s not much difference between some, but take Rapiers and Heavy Blades...). Then the next step is the animation of the actual melee moves themselves...

Wisp might float as she goes with guns, but she doesn’t even do that consistently; aiming makes her stand, parkour is all the same movements, zip lines are the same... only her regular walk, run and personal idles are actually ‘floating’.

DE really wanted the custom move set, but they failed on all but the most obvious.

this was already mentioned in a dev stream: she would have to get custom animations for everything basically and thats an absurd amount.

My secret hope is that one of the animation team has actually been doing exactly that in the background all this time, and everyone thinks they're just under-performing, and then in another year or so they'll break out and say 'Surprise! Wisp animations, custom for every animation and stance!'

And then the team will look at them and say 'Great. Super. So are you going to keep doing that for every single animation we do from now on as well?'

And that animator will have to say 'Well... maybe? Or... no... I didn't think of that...'

Wait... when did reality jump in to that situation?

would be nice if the Wisp could Float like with the Guns but instead Wisp runs with melee, would be Nice if that happens...
