Custom Animations/Emotes for Workshop Models


#1

Basically allow Models to have Custom emotes, similar to the system in VRchat. Surely it wouldn’t be too hard to add, Also it would take some pressure off the developers to create new emotes.


#2

I’m pretty sure this is part of the plan in the later phases of Workshop Support. I’ll vote to show support either way.


#3

I checked the Trello and didn’t see anything about it, but i could have missed it.

Hahaha fortnite emotes


#5

fortnite emotes :frowning:


#6

I don’t want Fortnite emotes either, but that’s gotta be allowed for this to happen lol


#7

fortnite emotes :smirk:


#9

to be honest people may do that but it would die down and everyone would start only using sitting and laying emotes often, and maybe some other random ones, just like gmod tower with its sitting laying and sexy dance

So… custom emotes, right? I’d be down to see some custom animations make their way to TU, but I have some concerns. Firstly, how large are file sizes typically for animations? I understand we’ll be downloading models and stuff already but I have no idea how large emotes would be. Secondly, I feel like they would be a lot harder to moderate. A simple animation can be interpreted in a bunch of different ways, so I’m sure we’ll see some ‘questionable’ emotes make their way onto the workshop.

Please tell me this will put this topic back on track.

I don’t think it would drastically increase the file size, and if there are “offensive” emotes. That’s the price you pay for true freedom. Also that’s why we have the parental controls.


#24

Yeah sure there would be some “Offensive” Emotes at first but i think it would die off in a month or two afterwards.


#25

Well that’s why I said that those are just concerns I have. I still feel like I’d maybe like to see Workshop Emotes become a thing someday, but we shouldn’t ignore the possible consequences. Parental controls definitely help, but they only go so far.
