So the question is, do you want to move slower, animate slower, or both? I'm not guaranteeing that we'll fix it the way you want, but I just want to be really explicit about what the problem is first.
I had another look at the video I sent. I'm not real good at describing things, but if you watch my character there, he looks stiff in his walk and kind of shifts side to side in an odd way. Then watch the NPC's with the slower animation, they look much smoother, relaxed, no odd shifts, and overall more natural.

Thank you very much for looking into this. I'm one of those wierd players who constantly walks on stations, during missions, everywhere; only running short distances when there's a reason. This new animation is sort of jarring to the reality I form while playing.

I understand you can offer no promises but I do want to say I truly appreciate your investigation nonetheless.

That was very helpful. I didn't know a toggle for this existed. Thanks! Still, there should be a way to do this from the keybind dialogue. Is "bind" command documentation anywhere to be found?

I noticed the same thing as I walk everywhere too (running just looks so goofy). Did they speed it up or something? It looks weird. Do not like it wherever they did.

I honestly don't know. I only learned of the /bind command by other players. I agree it should be more obvious.

It's definitely faster and doesn't look natural. I'm hoping they can slow the animation down to where it used to be, but I doubt it is a very high priority at the moment.

Yes, I think that I correct... it is a subtle thing but to us folks who walk-by-default it just looks a bit... wrong The walk animation looked better before, no doubt.
