    Hi TTobey,

    Well it finally got patched in. The run is back to the nice jog, but the tail is lashing from side to side. So it's still not back to how it was.

    Thank you for the female ratonga run fix! The tail is great! Looks very natural! I remember how the old tail was. I didn't have a problem with it, but the new tail is better.

    I'm assuming that's an intentional change, because otherwise the tail was just laying flat and clipping through the legs.

    EDIT: Yeah, I've seen it, it looks a *lot* better now, much more natural than before.

    I loved my ratongas before this change, now I don't like looking at them move. To me, the tail lashing back and forth looks unnatural. It's tolerable at like 5% run speed ....but my run speed is usually 100%+, and it whips way too fast. Just wish this change had been made a year ago. Wouldn't have race changed 5 characters to ratonga and made many more ratonga girls.

    Would be nice if DB would offer race changes to those who are unhappy with their characters now.

    OH MY GOSH TTOBEY THANK YOU! It's absolutely the cutest now! Please never change it! This is the way they were meant to run all along.

    Sorry Nella, you're wrong on this one, they're cute. I'm SO happy. They run just as they always did, now their tails move instead of clipping through their legs awkwardly.

    Thank you again Ttobey!

    If a tail moving is what makes you unhappy with being a ratonga, then you should never have picked a race with a tail. >_> Tails move---they're not static and limp. Especially on a bipedal race.

    And yes, of course it's going to look bad if you have a really high run speed--all of the animations that aren't on a mount look terrible at high runspeed. Just like how horses look like they're doing a weird Baywatch run when you try to walk with them, because their insanely high runspeed triggers the run animation even while walking.

    I know, right??? If they ran with their tail between their legs they'd trip over it. Take a look at your dog or your cat, they don't run like that.


    It looks perfect now. In the 12 years of playing I've always wanted it changed and now finally seeing it makes my girls even cuter than before.

    Hi, there is no WRONG or RIGHT with opinions. I don't like it. If it had always been like that, I wouldn't have made a ratonga. If I had thought it would be changed, I wouldn't have made a ratonga. I have 20 ratongas ...that I don't like now. Tails do stick out when animals run, unless they're running with their tails between their legs ...yes they do that too sometimes, look at your cat or dog when its scared and they don't trip over them.

    You can be happy. You got your way ...without being condescending or nasty to other players.

    Peace out, Nella

    When they run, there's a slight up and down motion. Animals tails do not whip side to side while running.

    I don't even know what the tail is doing anymore. Half the time is code driven and won't let me override it. What I see in our tool isn't what is happening in game.

    There was no condescension, it just seems like you're itching for an argument Nella, that's all. I'm happy with it and it's very cute. Also Ratonga do not run like rats on all fours, their legs are long and this makes a lot more sense, esp if they are wearing a cloak. Either way I enjoy it a lot!

    I have to say i like the movement of the tail now than before, has a better flow with the body movement.

    If anyone goes on Discord, I posted a video of what I am seeing on my end.

    Everyone should just buy a duckmount, always show mounts, and code team should make mounts show everywhere.

    Then everyone can be happy

    Reindeer are for Frostfell, Ducks are for life.

    I looove the ducks. Wish I wasn't so broke, I'd buy one! They're so adorable.

    FWIW I created a new Ratonga female and her run is like the animation you posted. She also walks on the front of her feet, not flat-footed, nor on the heels. She has a 'on the cat walk' type of walk.
  19. ttobey Developer

    I didn't do anything to the walk.

    My mouse is happy and enjoying her wiggly tail. :D
