Fix seeing through walls

Sark keeps abusing the exploit that if you enter first person perspective mode that you can see through walls by walking up or swimming up to the wall, clipping through the outer layer of the wall (that you can see) and than seeing through the other sides layer cuz your looking at it from the back.

So basically you can't see the inside layer (opposite side of what your looking at) cuz its pointed the other direction, so you see through the wall cuz the graphic covering the opposite side only points the other way and not inwards.

Could solve this by simply adding the graphic panel from the outside to also point towards the inside so that if your looking at the inside of the wall or platform you would see the opposite side wall and thus not be able to see/clip through the wall since even if they clipped through the front layer they are facing, if you had the other side also have graphic inside of it, than you wouldn't be able to see through the 2nd layer that is the other side of the wall.

To be clear I don't want sark punished, if he wants to stalk me I think thats fine and perfectly acceptable gameplay for a PvP server.

However I do not feel that using a exploit to see through walls is legitimate and should be fixed.

So my suggestion here is purely to fix the exploit, not punish a player for abusing a exploit that hasn't been fixed.

So your saying you know of this exploit of seeing through walls and you DO use it but your trying to claim you didn't in this situation?

Your harming the game more than helping sark by abusing exploits and keeping them from the dev.

What did you honestly want me to do? Your stalking me on pvp, I was supposed to say hi, leave my house and let you kill me?

No, I ignored you and continued to work.

You've been playing the game for how long abusing exploits Sark?

I honestly donno why your so mad at me. You tried to totem drop my carts and build walls to prevent me from getting at my carts.

I got my carts back and now your so mad that you want to harass me and make shit up?

With respect man, if you love this game so much, maybe help point out the problems with it instead of keeping exploits to yourself and abusing them.

Like I'm not stupid, I clicked on you, I could see you running around my house through the wall by seeing your health bar.

Your a liar, you used hide mode to see through my walls by clipping your head through, you ran all around my house in my tribe and I just ignored you cuz I figured you would get bored and go away.

I'll fight you one day, but it'll be when I can beat you.

I can't even leave my house without leaving my tribe zone, its bloody amusing your gona taunt me from outside of my house as if I should just stop what I'm doing and leave my house so you can kill me?

Is that honestly what you think?

I'm not as foolish as you sark, I'm not gona just leave my tribe so you can kill me, your gona have to work harder than that to get a kill on me.

Lets try this again?

I've moved this to Bug section as this is simply a bug / unintentional oversight.

This is due to your toon's head moving forward and off center during combat and hiding animations. The only proper solution to this is to increase the player's collision radius to make sure all animations such as this are enclosed in the toon's radius.

I've done this on the current Test Server build.

Can this issue still be reproduced or it fixed with the increased radius?

This issue is fixed on the test server outside of water, this means using running or hiding to put your head into a wall no longer works.

You CAN however swim your head into a wall, but this is such a rare and remote case that I'm not sure if it needs to be addressed.

I won't be able to fix this at the moment. The fix on the Test Server caused problems with building parts that require a close collision box for the player.
