I don't think in all my time I have used the walk function to actually walk around spacedock like a normal person. Always sprinting. Today I did. And it's kind of nice. I mean, the backgrounds move realistically and you actually feel like you're strolling around the station. You can hold down the walk key, set auto-run, and glance to the side with your mouse camera control.
I've used it multiple times before, I really like it.
BTW I do agree with the female walk animation. They should just let us choose from all the walk animations that have been in this game since release, it just makes sense. The same thing should be done with stances. In stead of replacing them just have XYZ Stance 1, ABC Stance 2, etc. But I digress lol
