    I spent a lot of time in R10 and it was a blast! Much of the time was spent sitting (among many others who were also sitting). I enjoyed the benefits of the polish quoted above, and suggest that we build on that foundation to include:
    • Ability to use applicable emotes while sitting. Right now emotes are disabled when sitting. It would be nice to be able to use most/all emotes (with unique animation?) from the sitting position (e.g. Play Dead lays head down to the shoulder). It would be interesting to know what is planned for sitting emotes. I've searched the Dev Q&A and forums, but can't find much discussion on sitting emotes. There were a couple bugs submitted in previous releases (1,2)
    • Ability to sit in different positions (e.g. slouch, sit up straight, lean back). When many people are gathered at a sitting event it would be nice to have some position variations from person to person. Also it can help convey "body language" particularly if you are able to switch between the siting positions without standing up.

    This caught my eye and made me think that it would be great if your avatar could lean in the direction of the wasd keys. (leaning slightly forward when you hit w).

    It would be great to be able use emotes while sitting, we should at least be able to clap and cheer.

    What sort of emotes we could use while sitting?

    here are a few that come to mind:

    /drink
    /chuckle
    /laugh
    /smile
    /point
    /fistontable
    /eat
    /look [target] (turns the head towards the person targeted)
    /shakefist

    and then you can have various moods that are basically toggled emotes that affect either the head or body. For example
    /happy
    /sad
    /thoughtful
    /injuredarm
    etc

    Ofcourse for sitting the various moods that affect the face will probably be more appropriate, but certain moods that affect the body stance could change the way you sit on chairs/thrones,etc

    Great ideas! Dance emotes could be done from a sitting position (e.g. head nodding, arm movements).

    I was trying to make the sitting positions/emotes not reference (or rely on) a table because you might not be sitting at a table.

    I can see how this thread could actually be more important as it can give ideas to the devs on what animations they could add to the game.
    Hopefully Firelotus or any of the mods, or perhaps even the devs themselves will stumble upon this thread and keep a close eye to it!

    At this point, I don't necessarily want the full animation with the emote, but the chat would do wonders.

    Can I also request a fart emote? I'd like to request a fart emote.

    If this was UO I would say alright, but this being SotA and SotA being 3D, animations could offer a lot, especially to role play. And lets be honest, Role Play is downplayed in every MMO with lack of role play tools/features. Perhaps LB -being a Role Player- could add sitting postures and sitting animations in variety in this game.

    In some cases, sitting on a chair would involve different emotes than sitting on the ground cross-legged.

    I also hope they think about other postures, and emoting from those postures. For example, it might make sense to have a persistent "kneel" posture, where you kneel on the ground until you tell your character to stand again. And from that kneeling position, you could have emotes like a kneeling bow, or a kneeling prayer, and a begging emote, too.

    Plus, also genuflection with one knee on the ground and double genuflection.

    There could be some kind of persistent emotes that reflect your mood while you are standing up or even walking/running.

    Plus, we'll need emotes to function when you're sitting on a horse.
