The more I work on the game, the more I hate the animation that plays when you fly fast to the right or left. its just entirely too flat and uninteresting. I'm going to take a second pass at it when I get the chance, but I'm still struggling with the transition animations. I have a busy week ahead of me. Hopefully next week I'll be able to post my problems to the forums and get some kind of insights into what I'm doing wrong.
