Ladder climbing animation is way too fast and hovers on exit
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When climbing a ladder the player looks like he has been dosed with adrenaline.

Added from duplicate:

Please watch this: (not my video) [^]

As you can see in the video the hands continue to "hold the ladder" (holding the air)
even after the character has already passed the ladder.
It does not place it's hands on the floor (roof) and pushes itself up.

Also when climbing down the ladder the character does not kneel down to to hold the
ladder and turn, it's just grabbing the air as if the ladder continue up above the
roof and instantly turns 180 degrees. {F17039}

Sorry for duplicate, somehow missed this post.

I also think this is a good reference as to how it should look
Dslyecxi's video about raven shield ladders:

Raven Shield did the ladders perfectly, the animations are spot on and climbing off of them is done fairly quickly.

Animation of climbing has been slowed down and synchronised with vertical movement.
However the entering and exiting issues cannot be handled properly because of AI - we tried making proper exiting, but then AI wasnt able to use ladders at all. So unless we find other solution in future, it will stay like this.
