Parachute animations
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Parachute animations seem to be the same as in Arma 2, at least some of them.

The parachute opening doesn't look very realistic, and there should be a transition animation between freefalling and parachuting.

While parachuting, the character doesn't use his arms, and is perfectly static.

Landing is, well, not done at all, I guess. The character stops, and even starts sliding on the ground, while the parachute plays its animation.
There should probably be at least some kind of cloth simulation there, but more importantly, an animation for the characters when they touch the ground.
The parachute should also play a different animation when landing on water.

Should note I get game crashes with the parachute.

Haven't had the time to try reproducing yet, and most others are avoiding parachutes do to the stability issues.

I see no bugs filed for this yet. Bug #10054, "After parachuting to ground, Game Crashes Upon Touchdown!"

I have made a video about that

Parachute animation and flight model need to be improve.

Mass closing ancient tickets with no activity for > 12 months; assume fixed or too trivial.

If this issue is still relevant in current dev build, please re-post.
