What is this?
The Advanced Animation Framework (AAF) provides a custom UI, XML configuration and a variety of other tools for modders to play animations from a scalable number of animation packs. Additional behavior controls, relationship features, user interface elements (menus) and statistics tracking are also planned.

AAF has some similar features and technical strategy to CE0's Skyrim mod OSA – Skyrim Ascendancy Engine.



I Need an AAF Theme?
Technically, an AAF Theme is not required (read below for more info). But, using one is highly recommended for most users. A basic theme to start with is available here: Basic Animation Theme.



What is an AAF Theme anyway?
AAF attempts to give a lot of flexibility to mod authors and users. As a result, there are a lot of complex configuration files that are mostly optional. The use of these files just depends on what you are wanting to use AAF for. That system can be a bit too much information to learn about for users that just want to jump in and use AAF quickly.

So, in order to make AAF easier to install and use for those users, the concept of themes was introduced in Beta 38. Themes are simply a grouping of config files into one AAF install. By packaging these files as themes for a type of gameplay, the complexity of the files can be hidden. Users then only need to know that the theme they are installing covers the gameplay features they are looking for.



A Lot More Info
Installation instructions, compatibility info, feature list and more are available at the AAF wiki.
Bugs and feature requests can be posted at the AAF issue tracker.
You can also join us at the AAF discord server.
