LocoMotion Matching is a fully-replicated locomotion system that leverages the power of motion matching and uses animations created with Motorica's MoGen tool suite to drive high-quality, smooth character movements for your games!


NOTE: THIS PROJECT REQUIRES THE FREE REPLICATED CHARACTER TRAJECTORY COMPONENT PLUGIN!

Character trajectory does not properly replicate in the base engine at the moment, but my plugin fixes this. This project will not work without it, so make sure it is installed to your engine before opening LocoMotion Matching!
