Re: Custom dances idea dropped? | 2009-04-22 20:01 | Nethaera
It has not been dropped. Creating additional dances takes a significant amount of animation work and we want to make sure that when we do put them out, that they meet our standards. We still intend to put them in, but we have no current eta on their addition.
