After trying on 3DS Max to animate the rifle bolt I have decided that it may be better to animate it on Unity as I was having a problem with creating the animation. I will be creating a new Unity project to put the rifle files in and will start to animate the rifle on Unity from now on.
For the past two weeks I have not been able to make much more progress due to multiple reasons. However I will be continuing with the animating for the rifle as soon as possible and will update on the blog later in the week. As for my project milestones I am aware I am falling behind massively and will need to work harder to try and make up for lost time.
