I seek help in finding a term common in game development, particularly 3D First Person Shooter games (not at all in 2.5D games such as Doom).

I understand that 3D first person shooter games can be divided into two kinds:

  • Those in which looking down from the character could show the clothes-covered hands area, the belly area, groin area and legs and feet area (and weapon/s if available)
  • Those in which this doesn't occur

What are the terms to describe these defined states in 3D FPS games? I would like to read about it.

This has absolutely nothing to do with software development. Kindly stop asking blatantly off-topic questions. Lundin‭ 25 days ago

@Lundin, you know very well that games are software, so I truly misunderstand why you consider this not about software development. Furthermore, I opine that personal general messages should be sent in person, and with examples. JohnDoea‭ 24 days ago

Your question is about gaming terminology, not software development. If I'm writing a microcontroller program for a dishwasher, then that doesn't mean that it's suddenly ok for me to start asking questions about dishwashers here. Such questions are about the functionality of the specific application I'm making, not about the process of making it. Lundin‭ 23 days ago

@Lundin, in a broad enough definition it is indeed a topic in the software development of the virtual physics / virtual realities of 3D FPS games and might have a standardized term, so I disagree that it's not about software development. That said; I shouldn't ask any more questions about game development here. JohnDoea‭ 23 days ago

And please notify me in person of any "blatantly off-topic questions" because I have asked many questions on the network and the vast majority of them were well received. JohnDoea‭ 23 days ago
