@saidrona looks great! The only thing that slightly irks me is the very rigid camera, but I assume you wanna smooth out gameplay first?

@jnnnik @jlemberg @saidrona

Thank you for your feedback.
I've experimented with camera smoothing a little. After playing with it for some time, I don't really think it works right with the pace of the game.

So I don't think I'm going to use camera smoothing. I'll probably leave an option to turn it on somewhere in the config file though (no promises).

@fika @saidrona
Thanks for the demonstration! Yeah, getting the camera to feel right is a most finicky task. I wouldn't give up on it entirely, though; the camera slightly lagging behind the short-distance-teleportation looks great, in my opinion!
Another camera thing I really like in general is centering the camera on an arbitrary point between player character and current/nearest target. Also slight screen shake for high damage hits- the options are endless 😍

@saidrona @fika also wow, I just almost hit the mastodon character limit 😀 that's a first

@jlemberg @saidrona
Yeah, I also liked the camera delay after the teleport.

On a bright side camera changing distance works independent of the smoothing, so I'll probably make it an option in the settings screen (no need to go into config files).
