# 1 Free to Play Female Run cycle.

Cryptic, here’s another thing that needs desperate attention before the game goes live in F2P. Supposedly our toons have been through, some of the toughest physical training, combat training and survival courses that the federation can throw at them, But can you explain to me why the women of Starfleet run as if there from a bad Japanese anime, with body motions that would make any physical trainer cringe.

Things you may want to look at are, motion capture of athlete’s, or Military personnel, to show you how the humanoid body should work, with and without carrying weaponry, failing this go back to the old run cycle, it may not have been perfect but it is far better than is being used at the moment.

I agree..

10 -billion % - I agree. It SUCKS. I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE it. I carry a rifle all the time - not because I like them, not because I want to use them [ I'd use pistols really ] but because the damn animation is SO terrible.

Please, for the love of ... whatever you want! Just fix the stupid thing.

To be fair, the only angle that the female sprint looks awkward to me is from is from behind. And that's just from how the arms and wrists look during the sprint cycle from that angle.

Don't expect it to change. It's the same run animation Cryptic used for Champions Online. I agree, it looks freakin' awkward, both from Starfleet officers and superheroes. It's not quite as bad as the TAS women's' run animations, but it's not great either.

I think its kinda cute, but yeah, it looks strage. Maybe you could choose somewhere if you like the more feminin new run style or the older, more trained style?

The thing is, Cryptic used to have a better run cycle in place for females in STO. And then they changed it to the current one for some reason. I'd just like the old one back as an option.

I agree. These are supposed to be military women, not anime schoolgirls.

Thats the problem, 100% of all ground action you see your toon from behind...

I'm a Lifer to both CO and STO, and this is -NOT- the run animation used there. Sorry, you're wrong on that one.


And yes, the main issue is that it used to be BETTER than it is now. I want the old one back. Asked for it immediately when the stupid change went in on Live. I've actually not played STO since that change, because of how stupid it makes my characters look.

I'm playing to test the F2P stuff, and still hate it.

-edit-

They had the female walk animation from CO for the 'Vixen' stance in for 2 days, then changed it to this silly walk animation along with the sprint/jog one. I want either the original or the one they had in for those 2 or 3 days before the last animation change.
