Make playing battle engi feel even cooler!
NOTE: GAMEBANANA DID A BAD THE DOWNLOAD MAY BE BROKEN (AS OF 23/07/2018) PLEASE CHECK BACK LATER TO SEE IF THEY FIXED IT
After 8 months of near complete silence I am proud to present to you: Engineer First Person Re-animated!
Every animation has been re-done to look more badass than the stock version!
Animations all work near perfect with Viewmodel 70
Sorry that the video's are done in a game due to a bug in the "Known bugs" section I had to record them in a valve server.
Every animation completely works as of 22/07/2018
Further info on installation and bugs will be at the bottom of the page.
So yeah, it took like 8 months to finally release this pack. I had animated a bunch of classes back when i was on vacation (Sniper, Pyro and demo) but after testing them at home they didn't look good at all and I scrapped them. I slowely worked on the engineer animations while procrastinating and being distracted by games and other stuff.
Along the way I encountered a few issues like jittering on the shotgun due to using the left hand instead of the right. Shown here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=El0WH0q28YI
and some animation bugs and other stuff that i luckily (mostly) fixed. Thanks to Paysus for helping me out with a lot of the issues.
Place the VPK in your tf/custom folder
To make them work in game you will first have to load a solo session by typing "map itemtest" (or whatever map you want to load) in the console. Then select Engineer and there you go they should all be loaded for your valve/community server games.
-"Shotgun reload animation only reloads once and then does every other animation before jumping to the reloading loop" It's a side effect for the jitter fix. Just join any valve/community server and it will be fixed
-"The animations broke after switching servers!" That's a problem with the mod rules for valve servers. You MUST select engineer AT LEAST ONCE every time the map changes, Even for a second is fine.
-"The animations for the short circuit look wrong" Yeah I know, I dislike the short circuit in every way possible, in terms of gameplay and how it's animated. It uses the pistol animation but only uses it from the wrist or something. I just couldn't be bothered to trial and error the inspect animations.
