"Lock to Terrain" suggestion
« on: January 25, 2014, 05:27:37 pm »

I'm not a huge fan of the current implementation of the Lock to Terrain feature... its a pretty jarring ride when moving around.  I think this can be useful, but I think there is an opportunity for a "Walk" feature.

There's going to be a normal FPS/TPS mode with an animated character in the next build.

Yes, once the animation interface will be ready. But i don't think it will be in upcoming release...

Hi,

A simple lock-to-ground feature is already available, using the slash ( / ) key, I think.
But as the first post said, this is not the same feeling as "walking around"
