FPS-RPG Project: Offhand Equipment

Up until now I had been equipping my torch in the main hand with no room for another weapon. Now I’ve made the appropriate animations and modifications to the inventory and equipment system to allow items flagged as ‘offhand’ to be equipped in the left hand, along side one-handed weapons in the main hand.

Note that this does not allow for dual wielding of weapons, only for use with off-handable items such as the torch or my newly created shield item.

I probably won’t be having a dual-wielding system in my game as I think it detracts to much from the usefulness of off-hands in so many games. I want to have the player make a decision between which off-hands they would want to use (if any) in certain situations rather than defaulting to the extra DPS of having two weapons.
