Questions (i am going to add to this checklist as i get extra good questions)
Q 1: What precisely occurs whenever you slide and the way does it work?
A 1: I will clarify how sliding works close to the 4-click slide for clarification functions.
The 4-click slide begins with 4 actions (4 clicks on the ground). Whenever you challenge 4 [or more] consecutive motion instructions (1 motion command could be processed per game-tick, so 4 actions will take 4 game-ticks to challenge) your character mannequin cannot compensate for these 4 actions inside 4 ticks; it’ll appear to be it takes your character an additional game-tick, so 5 ticks to journey to the 4th sq. you clicked on. The fact nonetheless is that your character is simply DISPLAYED to be a game-tick behind, with a view to make the operating/strolling animation to your vacation spot look extra lifelike. Your character is ACTUALLY at a distinct location, particularly a game-tick forward of the place it may be seen. (this may be confirmed by for instance dropping an merchandise whereas in a slide: the merchandise will seem forward of the place your character is exhibited to be, aka the place your character ACTUALLY is at this particular second: https://youtu.be/SdfJtTc6vok ). The identical applies for whenever you 2h an enemy whereas sliding: it visually appears like you might be 2hing them from the placement your character is exhibited to be at (for instance 4 squares away from enemy, which is not in 2h vary), however you might be in actuality 2h’ing them from the place your character ACTUALLY is at (for instance 2 squares from enemy, which is in 2h vary). When using this recreation mechanic appropriately you possibly can 2h from an a distance that APPEARS to be 4 squares.
THIS IS ALL UNDER THE ASSUMPTION THAT
1) ALL YOUR MOVEMENTS IN THE SLIDE CREATE A LINEAR PATH (the trail between origin level and 1st motion, 1st and 2nd motion, 2nd and third motion, third and 4th motion… is a straight line: diagonal, vertical, or horizontal) AND THAT
2) THERE IS AT LEAST ONE CHANGE IN DIRECTION BY 180° IN THE SLIDE (instance: if all actions are from east to west, it wont work. if there’s a motion from east to west adopted by a motion from west to east, it’ll work). It’s because turning round/altering path by 180° slows your character down, forcing it to maneuver sooner for the following motion. This further velocity is essential for the slide to work. Most velocity requires 2 consecutive 180° turns.
When pairing this mechanic with sure animations, such because the animation of attacking an enemy with a bow, your character will seem to ‘SLIDE’. By this I imply your character’s footsteps are out of sync and it appears as in case you are sliding throughout the ground.
Q 2: Why do the diagonal actions in a slide need to be completely diagonal (Yellow Rule)?
A2 : In case your motion path isnt completely diagonal (instance: from start line: you click on the sq. that’s 2 steps north, 1 step east), this forces your character to both journey 3 steps, OR 2 steps by taking 1 vertical step north and 1 diagonal step north-east. Since you might be solely in a position to run a distance of most 2 squares per game-tick, your character will mechanically select the choice utilizing 2 steps (1 vertical and 1 diagonal step – 6:07 ). Utilizing this path, your character does not decelerate when turning 180°, so you possibly can’t power your character to run sooner for the following motion. No pressured velocity buildup = slide does not work.
Completely diagonal paths at all times consist of two squares in a linear vogue. [Travelling 2 squares diagonally doesn’t take longer than travelling 2 squares horizontally in RuneScape. Fuck you pythogoras]
Q 3 : Why can the 2h’s vary be prolonged to a most of 4 squares and no more?
A 3: When sliding, your character will likely be exhibited to be precisely 1 game-tick (~0.6 seconds) behind in time of the place it really is positioned. Inside 1 game-tick you’ll be able to run a distance of most 2 squares. Therefore, through the slide you improve your 2h’s most vary from a most of two squares distance to the enemy to a most of 4 (2+2) squares. Be aware that sliding does not actually improve the vary, it simply seems to be elevated due to your character’s mannequin being displayed behind in time. On this case it’s being displayed 4 squares away from enemy when in actuality it’s really inside 2 squares of enemy aka in 2h vary.
These 4 squares max vary will also be diagonal: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPxLLcuabNo&function=youtu.be&t=2m4s at 2:04
