When human women stand idle, they look like a burly sergeant had just shouted "Atten-tion!".

Please revert back to the old - dare I say; attractive - style.

Thanks.

Sadly, this is another change that was noted, reported, and decried on Risia. :( And sadly, player pleas were ignored. :mad: Maybe now that the change is live, enough people will complain so that they change it.

I just logged on a lvl 1 human i rolled to see this...
and wow, it is bad (why would they waste time changing it?)

I run around then it looks like I forcefully shove my arms down...

sadly this sort of thing happens a lot in lotro as well. the female elf has being "shafted" several times over there with stealth annimation changes. looks like it might be a turbine thing to do little "tweaks" to annimations

Plse devs. bring back the old annimations that we all liked :)

I completely 100% agree, I hate how my chracter stands still now.

I was even the person who made the risia feedback post on it and had a picture comparison and everything. No one important responded so we can assume they like wasting time making model changes to players instead of making new monsters.

lol

I didn't play on Risia so didn't know about this stealth change, but have remarked several times to my guildmate that I hate the way my humans stand now...looks like they got a stick shoved up their....

PLEASE change it back. And fix /dance...they look like drunken geeks.

So they did change things and I wasn't imagining it. The first thing I noticed was that the halfling jump changed. Now it so reminds me of CoH.

It's probably a more efficient model. If the gang on LotRO or AoC have good code reusable in DDO, we all benefit.

Even those stiff human women.

I would much rather see my toon stand like Nell from Bleach... :D These toons are not FPS throw aways their animation should reflect that.

There is a pattern of changes that appears to be trying to appease ultra-conservatives or something... It's like someone complained that the human female was too sexy, so they tried to make her uglier. Maybe if we play along and respond with "Now she looks like she is being sexually abused with a stick, so please put her back!", it just might work.

Did you notice that the captive at the end of sewer rescue is not tied up anymore... It is okay to kill people left and right, but heaven forbid that a kidnap victim be tied up... That sounds like a vague reference to bondage... Gotta change it.

Let's all start a petition to get rid of all the female zombies... You know, since zombies have clothes that are rotting off, it might get the necrophiliacs excited. Gotta change it. :eek:

I HAD just noticed that, and was wondering when it had been changed.

Used to be "untie Arissa" and now it's "help Arissa"...

I don't play males(except dwarves and WF, who actually look like they should) because they are 1) Large and obstructing to the view area and 2) FUgly.

I don't like watching a guy's backside(or back, period) moving around in my face when I am playing. Also, if Drow Males are supposed to be Charismatic, why are they so freakin' ugly?

Hey Devs, the Victorians called. They want their cloistered "sensibilities" back.

Yeah, this is a pretty stupid change. I wish I had some constructive cricism to add, but, um, this sucks, and put it back? Thats about the best I can do.

I have a time machine, heres a screenshot of the Mod 6 human female stance:

I agree. I was so offended by the way Beholders look like huge testicles that I had to have counselling for a month. We should definitely take them out.

On a serious note, it would be really cool to be able to control the height and weight of your toon (within reason). Then I could have a big dwarf named cartman. Sweeet.

LMAO. :D

I have to say...I seriously hope the devs are reading this thread.

We don't like the new human female idle stance.
We don't like how fugly the male elves/drow are.
We don't like the way human males run.
Some of the dances are truly pathetic. Human female dance (not dance2) and halfling dance for instance.

Hope I got everything. Basically stop making stealth (unannounced) animation changes to our characters without at least asking us what we like/don't like.

And as a side note, hostages are typically tied up or restrained in some way - this has nothing to do with (sex) bondage so stop being so retentive and PUT ARISSA BACK IN KNOTS!

yes the male elf/drow are quite ugly to. its a pity they aren't the charasmatic good lookers that elves are supposed to be.

oh and arissa fine the way she is, if she wants "help" then i'm sure i can find a nice quite spot in that dungeon to "help" her out :D after all i dont have to worry about those pesky rops/chains getting in the way now :eek: :cool:

I can't comment on Risia (havent got the client installed), but has anyone noticed that the human male will run with one animation (the original animation) and then when u swing a weapon he changes to the trot, before changing back to the original run animation?
