Mounting up should make you higher up off the ground


#1

I’m not sure if this has been brought up or considered, but the title says it all… I don’t get why the thing I stand on is in my invisible knees… Just an immersion improvement… I know gathering will be harder, so maybe a toggle to raise perspective?


#2

And when you are going into a fight you will instand drop on the floor? Not nice :slight_smile:


#3

It’d only need to be a foot or so, just enough to be noticeable, but nothing that will activate vertigo… Also, toggle option?


#4

Problem with this is the clasic smash the ground problem


#5

Can you elaborate? Do you mean when trying to harvest low to the floor because the game floor is lower than your actual floor?


#6

Harvest, pick up loot, chest, so on.


#7

Just make the grab circle expand from further up? Yeah there are some shortcomings, but that’s why I suggested it be toggleable… I’d personally rather get off the mount to harvest than feel like I’m riding a segway on my knees


#8

Have you tried resetting the view? If the in game floor is too low try crouching when you reset, this should raise the floor.


#9

But I want the floor to be lower, only when on a mount, I get the workaround (jump up and reset view mid jump?:joy:) but I’m asking for it to be an in game feature.


#10

Not really too needed because of the annoying time it would cause mechanically.


#11

It’s an immersion thing… Name another game, vr or pancake, where getting on a mount doesn’t change your height… Most games you can’t even collect stuff while mounted, which I wouldn’t mind being able to do if it added the realism of actually mounting up. You’re so against the idea, don’t toggle it on… But don’t just go against it because you personally wouldn’t like it… That’s why I proposed it be an option, but I guess everyone has to play the same way for some reason?

I agree that it would be more fun to make the mounts feel more like you are riding on something. I did actually make a tweak to them some time ago that adds a bit if a slide mechanic and makes it feel more like a hoverboard. What do you guys think of that?

We’ve been so busy with the expansion that I haven’t been able to put it in game, but we’ll see what happens after this beta. It’s a small tweak that I think would give it a little bit more enjoyment!


#13

I think that’s fantastic! I’m glad to hear you’ve considered it😀 I know you are busy with reborn, so I can wait for reborn for that feature to be implemented. I think even a slight lift will make a noticeable difference, and the slide could be cool but some people may have a bad time with any forced camera movements

I was just saying that it could be mechanically annoying when using the mechanic as in it could be harder to pick up items and chests and such, its minor but if it has no mechanic downsides I support and like it, though with not being able to touch the ground makes me kind of iffy
