|How many legs does a centipede have?|
Yesterday after building 3 bicycles to share with my fellow builders, I decided to tackle the horse ordeal today. When I was through with the adventure the horse successfully walked - another possible gem in my Shadowgate belt. (I secretly hope with it will be the Lapis lazuli stone).
Moreover I hope someone will enjoy plodding along with the cart horses in Oakes Valley and Brantley No. 3 Shaft.

The problem is the legs in motion - the solution is to create 4 legs for each socket that are not all visible as the animal walks. This accomplished by sequencing the legs, much like a 2d animator would, but sequencing requires writing a piece of code that syncs with another piece of code. And there is the bounce, the roll, sounds that applicable to steps taken, and sitting the rider. It is a lesson I want to master with other horse types. - Tedious but oddly gratifying to see the magic at work. A revisionist's wonderland. I dutifully believe in revision. Thank Goodness.
