City of Titans doesn’t have issues swapping male and female animations

Well this is a boon to the City of Titans project.

The development team behind the superhero MMORPG was fiddling about with some of its character tools and experimented with switching the model from male to female to see what would happen with animations. It turns out that both genders animated just fine, which means that it might be easier than expected to create attacks and abilities for characters without having to animate two sets of motions.

“Since the male and female models are not the same, it was not a given that animations would be able to do this. Also the female’s hair has physics. Somewhat unpolished, but it’s there,” the team said. You can view the animation examples after the break.

I’m encouraged by the continuing improvement I see in the animations. Keep up the good work, MWM.

The dude animations look a little more janky, IMO.

It’s never nearly as hard to also implement female characters as *some* studios would try to have you believe :D There are a great many shortcuts that can make it pretty easy to do. Not that many people believe the AAA companies who try to use those excuses anyway.

Looking good guys but tell Lord and Lady Pugilist to throw in a left every now and again.

Gotta mix it up, keep the opponent off guard.

Maybe an Elvis chop too.
