    @kwarisover The animations are all hand done. The off looking hand have been fixed.
    The 1 handed animations are set up with the free arm in a position to use a shield.

    Anyone have any requests for this pack?
    Thanks a lot for the reply, man! That's some great news. I'm very much looking forward to your release because contrary to common belief, swords and axes had not been the primary weapon throughout human history, spear (and later other polearms) is. It's a shame you don't get many responses here, as not many visit the WIP section of Epic forums--we generally only check out what are available on the Marketplace. But here are some requests:

    1. 1H animations with shield in the offhand, which happens to be the most popular combination ever in any culture around the world. You don't even have to animation moves considering the shield, like bash or block, as we have other packs doing that. Perhaps just a few right hand spear attack animations with proper techniques (conservative offensive moves with the shield guarding the spear hand). Don't have to be anything fancy, as 1 hand is way less flexible than wielding with two hands, so there doesn't have to be a lot of different animations. Perhaps just a thrust from above the shield, one below the shield, one from the side of the shield and maybe 1 or 2 attacks aiming at the lower body from any position.

    2. Considering the flexibility of wielding spears with two hands, maybe having some subtle and quick thrusts attacking different parts of the body, like this ones in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZZjtxgUGeU&t=47s I haven't seen your animations in video demonstrations, but judging from the screenshots they look pretty good so far!

    3. A few defensive moves (parry, deflect) with the techniques demonstrated in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LdVYW9r2G3U&t=120s
    I know the attacks are more about poleaxes, but the defensive moves still make sense in context of spears.

    4. Any chance you can make an animation offset when you are idle (you know, with the weapon "sheathed") or marching that looks like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pike_(..._Memmingen.jpg
    While it makes sense that swords can be put into a scabbard, axes and maces can be hung from a belt and shield can be carried on the back. It would make more sense to have large weapons like a spear/pike/poleaxe/halberd/zweihander to be carried this way when relaxed. I don't think you even need to animate the idles and marching, just an animation offset to carry the weapon with their right hand in that position.

    Sorry, man. Those are lots of requests, I know. But even if you can do any one of them it would be great. Best of luck!

    These animations looks very realistic and practical. I've been looking forever for some decent spear animations but so far the ones UE marketplace and Unity Asset Store offer are just absurdly horrid.

    Are your animations motion captured? Some of the hand positions in the 2nd and 3rd screenshots look painful. I have to admit that just by looking at them I started to have wrist pain XD. Hopefully you can fix those. Obviously the hands move up and down along the shaft (no pun intended XD) when you operate a spear with both hands. Also I will definitely appreciate if the one-handed animations could have off-hand position ready as if it is holding a shield, as spear+shield is the most common combo in the history of warfare.

    Keep up the good work! Very impressed and looking forward to your release!

    New update out and backup on the marketplace!




    OLD POST:
    Working on a new Spear Animation pack.
    pack will contain
    - around 10 key poses that will blend into each other
    - many attack animations per fighting pose
    - 8 directional movement for many of the poses
    - aim spaces for key poses
    - 1st person and 3rd person animations
    - all animations will be mirrored

    also plan to ad several spear props, may make a customization spear blueprint

    pack is planned to have large amount of animation files when inclining mirrored versions of animations

    here is some early screenshots, still need to fix a thing or 2 with existing animations
