Good news: dead ducks!

The latest post on the official Linden Lab blog is yet another great step by them. First of all, they teamed up with some of Second Life’s well-known designers to bring everyone great new default avatars, and now they’re seeking out animators to help them kill the awful duckwalk that so many of us hate!

The duckwalk is often one of the first things that newbies want to get rid of (I’ve lost count of the cries of, “How do I lose this stupid walk?” that I’ve heard). It might be a while yet before the new default walks are available to everyone, but it’s a welcome step in the right direction.

All we have to hope for now is that the priority on the walks isn’t set so high that they override the (sometimes expensive) animations that many residents have paid for!

  1. I think that is awesome news! I’ve long complained about the newboe waddle as a Mentor, so it’s good to see it is finally being dealt with. Thanks for sharing! :D
