    Default Guns and Bows: Travel Time

    This needs to be regularized. Either give them both no travel time, give them both travel time, or give us an option to toggle it.

    Thoughts?

    Can't make bows instant because of the animation.


    I mean, you <i>could</i>, but that would look unbelievably stupid.


    And I don't want the animations to be gotten rid of. Guns are boring, but superior.

    Also I wish charges weren't cleansable so Bows could have a use in a burst-y build.


    5x Charges -> Dead-Eye/Hasted/RFS -> Barbed -> Detonate all hitting in the same timestamp, pretty much.

    If you don't want the animation to be gone, that's fine.

    I was more making a statement of how un-viable that is.

    If this game was based around logic we wouldn't have 10-foot-tall Bahmi running around teleporting holding toothpick daggers because they're better stats.

    I thought time travel was impossible. How exactly are guns and bows doing this?

    Something like:

    I'd imagine.

    It's complicated adding a toggle to change a weapons function.

    Make bows travel time instant, leave sounds like it is. IDGAF about your bow logic in a fantasy gane that has dragons and time travel.

    They did it with helmets and shoulders, I fail to see why this would be impossible with a weapon.

    Toggling an animation is different from toggling a mechanic.


    Specifically for something that completely changes it, rather than being like Planar Reversal which is a check:if kind of thing.

    It's different, so it's impossible? I don't think so.
