This mod has provide many of new weapon idle animations, and they are full set (including walk/run/turn). You can choose different style to replace the vanilla, Just try it and I wish you like it. If you like it don't forgot comeback to endorse or donate me to let me keep go on, Thanks.

1.Because male and female skeleton is different, in case male hand is longer little bit than female in default game set, this why vanilla bow draw idle female hand can not touch arrow chord, twist the hand position in bow animation is best solution for female can touch arrow chord when use bow....

I have specific twist the hand position for female character can touch the arrow chord, The xpms or xpmse "extended sliders for ece" option will change the bow size, which mean if you pick this option, female character will no longer match my specific twist bow idles. Also, my specific twist bow idles is only design for default bow weapon, some custom bow size is different, may also not match.

2.Once you install Pcm, If you see "2hm_equip" "bow_drawlight" "bow_drawheavy" "bow_drawn" and "bow_release" (bow is including with sneak) is under [animations] and [animations>female] both folder, all under [animations>female] are specific twist for female character, don't replace each other, and FNIS "Gender Specific Animation" is essential.

3.Some weapon style is request custom skeleton which is change weapon node position allow you draw the 1hm/dag weapon from back like xpms, it is highy recommended.
There also have bow option which is change equip idle to match quiver node position from "Frostfall by Chesko", It is also request xpms or else custom skeleton to support.

nown Issue:

The vanilla 1hm equip idle is 43 frame, only in (or less than) such fame time allow you keep pressing "R" key to try to unequip(withdraw) weapon when your (equip)draw idle animation still not yet finish and don't get any trouble. Unfortunately my Pca 1hm back equip idle is over 43 frame and I can not reduce to 43 frame for compromise it, So if you use my 1hm back equip idle, Please wait the equip(draw) animation finish before you want to unequip(withdraw) the weapon, otherwise you may get loop problems.


Downlaod the main file, install with NMM or Mo, flexibility, simple and quick, p
lz install FNIS and gen "skeleton arm fix" once you install or remove Pca. If you also use my another mod Pretty Staff And Magic Cast Animations,  Pretty cast is contain 1hm and sneak idles that is overlap with pretty combat.

you can found the animation file in path:
X:The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim >Data >meshes >actors >character >animations > xxx.hkx.
just remove it,now the character will return vanilla idle with original game set.
