on the subject of visuals for when you're injured: I think a very slight tunnel vision and a well made creeping darkness on the edges of the screen would work really well. maybe depth of field too?
Also gun firing should be more impactful and immersive than it is in most games. Guns should feel pretty wild and powerful, not like little spammy pewpew machines like in CoD games.
but don't make it like CS where the guns fucking spray everywhere like they're made out of jello and operated by a 12 year old
And an increasing depth of field would be fucking rad aswell.
Maybe increase head bobbing as you get injured, too?
Also a suggestion is add a Gears of War-like reload mechanic, where you reload a bit faster if you hit it on time, and add DoF to the reload animation if you don't hit reload on time.
It could make for some technique
ITT: 3 page discussion on how screen effects will be when wounded
Whereas in games with healthbars and no regenerating health I would micromanage to the point of obsession.
It's a pretty hard thing to pull off well, I think.
I like CoD4's method the best, with the pulsing retinae around the edges of the screen.
If you shoot people in the throat they should make gagging noises when they die. The RNL team did that and it sounded hella badass.
add depth of field to ironsights
If there's an explosion like 40-60m away from you and you're not in cover, make it so you "feel the shockwave". Like by blurring the vision for a really short time.
I'm coding a primitive HUD atm thanks to Lazy GFX artists.
I don't suppose it's possible to make the NPCs throw up when melee'd in the stomach, is it?
Why did I word it like that.
Of ocurse it is.
Well if you were really unfit and you were running around, out of breath, pissing yourself from being shot at, I'm sure you'd feel a tad sick, and would most likely throw up when it the stomach with the butt of a rifle.
Besides, it would look cool.
i personally can't see it happening i'm afraid, not like this anyway.
joke animation, by the way, no chance of this getting into the files.
EDIT: unless of course this vomiting thing catches on
When you punch someone with the butt of your rifle in the stomach, they should fall over with vomit flying across the screen. More immersion
I want to have sex with this mod.
When is it being released?
Oh god what.
AWW MADDA FUCKER
I love the re-bar in the gut animation, never got that one before
I still wince just as much as I did while playing FC2, watching those healing animations
0:34 - oh god does that guy feel no pain or something
1:31, fuckin' shit, they didn't even add an "OW FUCK!" recording for these things?
Ugh I hate the one where he digs the plyers into his skin
