About this mod

The goal is to generally make Sora's movement more responsive and feel better.
A mod menu has been added to change various values, opened with O.
Animation speeds for starting, stopping, turning, landing, and more have been increased.

An optional file replaces some of Sora's movement abilities.

Permissions and credits
The main file includes animation speed increases, and a second file contains changes to various movement values.
A menu can be opened by pressing the letter O key, to change various movement variables. To close it, simply click on the screen away from the menu and press O again.
The value changes are loaded through Sora's Idle animation, any mod that overwrites this will negate those changes.
Changing animations can be a lot of work, there are hundreds of files being changed!

Place in "\KINGDOM HEARTS III\Content\Paks\~mods\".
Now compatible with the ModLoader using the name ImprovedMovement. This is optional, and the mod still works standalone.

Also available for KH0.2.

- Instant Doubleflight, lets you double jump as soon as you've started jumping.
- Slide/Hop to Guard, causes you to launch slightly upward, allowing you to to Guard or Air Slide almost instantly.
- Weapon Switching Override, allows you to cancel attack animations to change weapons mid-combo. You can specify how long it takes for the animation to be overriden if the game hasn't changed weapons normally yet.

- Known Issues -
None currently! Just be aware that some custom values could potentially cause issues.

- Compatibility -
- Animation speed increases should be compatible with all other mods, as long as they don't change those exact animations.
- ValueEdits are dependent on Sora's Idle Animation, and will not work if overwritten! If you're a modder and want your mod to be compatible, create an Actor named MovementValueActor in /Blueprints/ImprovedMovement/ and refer to it using a Notify to spawn actors. Just don't pak the actor.
- Sora's animation set is in one file, and as such, any mod that relies on that file will be incompatible with the animation ability changes.

- Plans for the future -
While we have figured out how to increase animation speeds, a lot of the movement logic is still set in code, and can't be changed as of now.
Some of the fixes like Slide/Hop to Guard and Weapon Switch Override aren't quite perfect, would be nice to change these.
Combat fixes? I want to make base Sora's combat and Flow Motion abilities more viable, I might include them here as a separate file, or as a different mod entirely.

- Thanks -
