Mysterious Minor Mid-Air Momentum Manipulation
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

What is happening:
From a stand-still, your pony will move in an unintended direction during a jump.

What should be happening:
The desired trajectory would be nice

Steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Jump from a standstill.
  2. Move (AWSD) in any direction.

Notes: the resulted movement can actually be unpredictable. Sometimes the pony will move according to where they are facing (during mid-air move attempt), sometimes they won't be able to gain movement at all while in air.
This may be due to a kind of input lag. Can't determine if due to slow machine, since FPS remains nominal--but it is noticeably harder to Jump in lower-FPS conditions. It is generally difficult to jump in succession in all situations, though.

Game client version:

Issue persists on v 0.1.3.1 of the macOS build. It does not seem to be affected by player direction, nor the general gradient of the terrain at a macroscopic level. Could be an issue with the player controller.
