Hey Fellow Devs!
I’m a solo dev working on an adventure RPG and I have a big emphasis on gather and crafting skills. I would have thought this would be common and expected to find a wealth of ready-to-import assets but I’m struggling to find some quality smooth animations for things like mining, chopping, blacksmithing etc.
I have already given this asset pack a go >> <<, but to be frank, they’re really not up to scratch. There is foot sliding and jumps between what should be seamless anims. And I can’t find any anim packs for blacksmithing!
So I suppose my options are:
- Make the animations myself (not very comfortable with doing so, and have enough on my plate)
- Request a new asset pack (is this even a thing?)
- Hire a dedicated freelance animator (where should I go?)
Could anyone provide some guidance / thoughts / opinions on what you would do?
Appreciate all opinions, and offers to help!
