Sir Brizz posted on the UT Forum that he tried the latest build and indicates that there are significant changes to the movement coming in the next build.
Steve Polge’s Github comments state the following:
“Movement tweaks: New separate brakingfriction, so can increase movement friction, so running direction changes are crisper. Increased sprint delay, and also increased sprint acceleration. Movement speed is now immediately limited to normal ground speed if strafe while sprinting, but also get full normal acceleration. Tweaked a bunch of floor slide properties.”
The post by Brizz comes just a little over a day after he admitted in a forum post that essentially he was so bummed about the movement that had massively lost interest in the game.
Hopefully Epic can get this dialed in and unite the UT community and get everyone excited about playing UT4!
