Legacy:Movement Metrics (UT2003)

From Unreal Wiki, The Unreal Engine Documentation Site
Jump to: navigation, search

Distances that the player in UT2003 can jump or dodge. All units are UU.

Many of these have been determined from a mutator written by Wormbo, which displays statistics about the distances heights and speeds gained during gameplay.

Good maps to test on are BR-Anubis (because it has nice open and flat areas), DM-Asbestos (the boost dodge) and on W's very own DM-Cube16-][ ;) (more space than on Anubis and better wall dodge environment)

Jump Stats Mutator (make sure you read the readme and don't blame me if it blows up your computer ;))

Abbreviations[edit]

Jump from the ground
Dodge from the ground
DJ 
Double Jump
WD 
Wall Dodge (90° away from the wall. When dodging 45° away from the wall you can get about 15% better distances when combined with jumping along the wall.)
IJ 
Impact Jump
ID 
Impact Dodge (like Impact Jump, but instead of the jump a dodge is performed)
IWD 
Impact Wall Dodge (a wall dodge boosted by the shield gun)
BD 
"boost dodge" / "boost jump" (a jump and a wall dodge at the same time; only really "boosts" in UT2003)

Without Any Modification[edit]

The following values have been gathered without any speed/jump modifying additions, i.e. default gravity, no adrenaline combos and no physics-altering mutators.

EntropicLqd: Is 2K3 VASTLY different from 2K4? I've put a small map together that relies on a specific jump not being possible. I'm currently clearing a distance of 1184UU with a J, WD, DJ combination.

Wormbo: We may have to start Movement Metrics (UT2004). Differences in the walldodge implementation cause all values for walldodges and boostdodges in UT2003 to be quite a bit larger than in UT2004. The boostdodge has been degraded to a regular walldodge now because it nolonger adds the upward velocity of the jump to the doding velocity.

EntropicLqd: Would seem sensible. I'll have a play this weekend and try and get some provisional figures down. It'll be interesting to see how your mutator values line up with my own testing. We might need a caveat around the player collision allowing the player to actually jump longer distances. My impact jumping is pretty poor though.

GRAF1K: Groundspeed is apparently increased as well. Should the UT2004 metrics page duplicate the metrics unchanged since UT2003 or reference this page?

EntropicLqd: I would prefer all the unchanged (if any) metrics to be duplicated. It keeps all the metrics for each version of ther game in one place which is a bit simpler for the users.

Special trickjumps[edit]

Funky moves for extra distance or in special situations.

Move Height Distance Notes
BD 140 UU 836 UU more common distances are around 750-780 UU
BD, DJ 210 UU 1168 UU more common distances are around 1000-1060 UU

Please suggest others and describe them a bit.


Kerlin: Speed Adrenaline modifies all of these, doesn't it? Ugh. Not to pile on more work or anything. :)

Wormbo: The Speed combo increases speed and jump height, so expect huge leaps in combination with impact jumping or other special combinations. I'll see about that right now, thanks for the reminder. :)


With The Speed Combo[edit]

set ComboSpeed AdrenalineCost 0 gives enough time to test these jumps. :)

For some reason impact jump with the speed combo result in less height that normal impact jumps.

Gui: Thx to Switch for the datas concerning shieldjumps and to Lord Simeon for the duck thing. Also, Qbic has posted some additionnal infos on BuF, but I didn't test them; here they are:

-dodgejump sideways while running forward: 832 (with speed, 1520)-

Comments[edit]

Foxpaw: Some information about the Karma units would be a useful addition. To figure them out you may have to make a script to move two objects in sync, one with regular physics and one with Karma physics. That's just an idea as to how it might be measured, if anyone was willing to do the "grunt work" of figuring out the conversions it would be very useful.
