SoFCenter has posted it's twelfth installment of their Designer's Diary. Keith talks about some interesting stuff about SoF's hit detection system (from a request).
Once we've determined what exactly has been hit, we go through some damage-handling code to figure out what limbs to sever, how much blood to send flying into the air, etc. If a bolt-on was hit, though, we figure out if it's something that can stop a bullet (like a helmet) or something that'll just go flying off without stopping the incoming damage (like a hat). And since we know what body part was hit we can also choose which animation we want the target to play…shaking his hand from having his weapon shot off, hopping up and down from a foot hit, or flying backward from a lethal shoulder wound.
Also, PlanetSoF has posted a very interesting and not to mention funny flash movie made by there very own staff: Passive Aggressive. We suggest you check it out. Also be sure to email PassiveAggressive with any suggestions for future movies.
