These are mods that make you and the inhabitants of Skyrim not move like robots all the time. Note: All of these mods require FNIS to work which you should have already installed into your game already. Many of these mods conflict with eachother since they are animation packs so please don't try to mix match animations of the same weapon with another. IE: Trying to mix
YY Anim Replacer - Zweihander with Enhanced Animation's two hander animations.
(HINT HINT, THE NAME IS ALSO THE LINK TO THE DOWNLOAD PAGE)
R.A.P - Idles currently offers you 16 idles and around 18 minutes of animation to choose from.
But why you ask? Well, these aren't your standard idles, they are much longer and have a lot more detail than other idles.
For comparison the vanilla idles have around 200 frames (about 7-8 seconds) and then they loop and start over. These new idles have anywhere between 1200 and 3000 frames each (40seconds to 2 minutes), allowing for more detail and more unique, less repetitive movement.
Have you ever felt like the animations in Skyrim feel a bit stiff, generic or just plain old and rusty? R.A.P - Movement offers you reworked movement animations that include complete working functionality.
