Their lmo's have been pretty disapointing from their misplaced handle bars on the hover bikes to the missing flying animation on the mechs. But now their lightspeed bikes are the worse offenders. Not only can other people NOT see the light trails, or the "flare" animated wings on the back, but the freaking wheels don't even spin. Only the owner can see these things. To the rest of us their bikes look like statues moving around. It's comical.
Unfortunately the case with many locomotions is that some have distinct features only owners can see, so it kind of can't be dealt with.
Thank you for bringing the issues of the lightspeeder and the non moving wheels to attention though, it is disappointing to hear others can't see the wheels spin.
LOL @ welcome to Home, I've been using it for over 2 years!
I can understand other users not seeing some of the effects but the wheel spin is inexcusable. I like the design of the lightspeed bikes, the white one is very pretty but no wheel spin means a no sale. Glad I saw someone using them or it would be 4 bucks down the drain.
Not only visuals but sounds as well. No one but the owner can hear the annoying chime from GZs valentine heart bike and the flying broom. Everyone should enjoy the annoying chime.
It seems as a general rule I've noticed is these special animations are only viewable by owner unless they are on the drop down R1 menu, like konami's dragons that shoot fireballs.
Hi Alien Gunner,
I'm sorry to have disappointed you, but there is a memory limitation to what other users can see remotely: that goes for all portable items: LMOs, avatar animations and companions. Which means all animations can't be displayed remotely, the behaviours need to be simplified, and the sounds and particles are only seen locally.
I tried to animate the wheels, remotely but it's a complex animation the Lightspeeder has: the tail flaps open, the wheels turn, and the light trail expands. Those 3 anims happen independently. Unfortunately I couln't find a way to display this behaviour remotely, even with the help of Sony's technical support.
If more people complain about this issue, I'll see if I can bo back and figure out something for an update, if it can be fixed at all. But TBH I already spend a good few days on this and couldn't figure this out back then.
Thank you for your understanding,
