Summary0004107: Need too much room to drop rag dolls
DescriptionRight now you can't drop them places it looks like you should be able to. I adjusted this for dropping Sykes; perhaps a inversely change would be worth exploring.

Hmm. What's interesting is that the even if the player has plenty of space in front of them, if they are standing beside a wall, they will not be able to drop a ragdoll. Take one step away from the wall and then dropping is possible.

So the problem is not really connected to how much space is in front of the player--the ragdolls will actually turn sideways if there is not enough space to lay flat facing away from the player. The problem is when the player is in a thin area with not enough space to the left and right, like a thin hallway or a doorway. This isn't intuitive to the player, who will only be looking at the space in front of them.

I'm not sure what in the code makes that happen.

I'm going to unassign this from myself, as I've done all I can with the def values.

Rev. 7958: The code will now try to drop the rag doll in multiple directions away from the player instead of just in front of him.

You can specify the range of angles from -cv_pm_shoulderDrop_maxAngle to +cv_pm_shoulderDrop_maxAngle and respective angle increments cv_pm_shoulderDrop_angleIncrement at which this test is performed.

I have put default values of
cv_pm_shoulderDrop_maxAngle = +/- 100 (droping to left and right side)
cv_pm_shoulderDrop_angleIncrement = +/- 15

As a bonus, this also helps with droping inventory items to your hands while standing close to a wall.
