# 1 My Shoulders Are Funny

What happened with the animations? The female character's shoulders are now unnaturally wide because of the new animations and it looks very awkward.

This is one of my crewmembers. She has the 'gruff' stance - now it's slouch. What is wrong with her shoulders, it's like they've been turned inward with a twist of a wrench or something.

Stern seems to make the character very interested on whatever is on the ceiling, and you can't be stern if you're not looking the other person in the eye. These animations are awful. Awwwwwfuuuuuuul, and nothing messes with my immersion in a game like a character who stands or runs unnaturally, which is another thing I noticed when I sent my character running in combat and she ran with stiff shoulders at the bad guys like a battering ram.

I don't want to be overly harsh, but I hate these. I rarely feel this strongly about anything. Everything else I really love, but this ruins all my characters. What was wrong with the old animations?

Brawler is nice. Swagger is mostly okay. Relaxed is a HUGELY needed improvement. But what happened with the others?

Again with the looking at the ceiling. And what is feminine about this? It's more imperious than gruff.

Bees knees would be quite flimsy so that's good news. Seriously though.

This is an example of the old swagger animation. It's perfect, it's natural, it's just excellent.
