Semi-XY Sprite Billboarding

Postby [HotPocket] » Sat Jul 06, 2019 1:00 am

My idea of semi-XY sprite billboarding is pretty much putting a maximum amount of pitch that a sprite can face. Because when you look down to see a monster facing straight into the ground with it's legs up in the air, it can look kinda dumb. See the billboard axis example on the ZDoom wiki here if you don't know what I'm saying so far: https://zdoom.org/wiki/File:BillboardAxes.png

I would make a 2D example of how this would work, but paint.net is being a pain right now.
TL;DR, there should be a minimum-maximum slider for the pitching on sprite billboarding going from 0 to 90 if that makes any sense.

Possibly to expand on this, add some sort of +DONOTUSEXYBILLBOARD, essentially to force only certain actors to use just good ol y axis (say corpses, ammo, weapons, etc)

That's already a thing. It also has a far better name than "DONOTUSEXYBILLBOARD".
