About this mod

Allows your character to play 4 cycling idles when not moving. Male and female have separate animation path. NPCs are not affected. Update 1 provides more animations for variety. NOTE: I am not an animator

This mod provides 4 IDLEs for female player character and 4 IDLEs for male player character. The idles are chosen at random.

The idle is only played when you're not moving. Basically, this "replaces" the basic, gender-shared mtidle.kf with more idles.

To that end, this mod supplies you with animations taken from the game's sources.

\Data\meshes\characters\_male\idleanims\femaleidle\femaleidleC.kf (originally ttpcolautumhandbehindtalk)
\Data\meshes\characters\_male\idleanims\femaleidle\femaleidleD.kf (originally sirelaxedc)

\Data\meshes\characters\_male\idleanims\maleidle\maleidleA.kf (originally dialogbodyshiftrightlistena)
\Data\meshes\characters\_male\idleanims\maleidle\maleidleB.kf (originally ttpntrlarmscrossedlistena, duplicate of the one for female)
\Data\meshes\characters\_male\idleanims\maleidle\maleidleC.kf (originally ttpcolautumhandbehindtalk, duplicate of the one for female)
\Data\meshes\characters\_male\idleanims\maleidle\maleidleD.kf (originally sirelaxedc, duplicate of the one for female)

Except for dialogbodyshift animations, all supplied animations are gender-neutral. In practice, currently male and female look the same. You need more idles for actual variety between male and female

Each idle has 25% chance to play. If you have any idle that you want to use, simply overwrite any of the provided idles

You can reset the playing idle by drawing your weapon (any weapon will do), holster your weapon. After a few moments, a random idle will be chosen again.

Just click on "Download With Manager", download the package, and activate the mod.

Known Issues or Bugs
Tweaked Standing Idle's mtidle.kf cannot be used for this mod. There is a problem with crouching.
Note that Tweaked Standing Idle actually modifies the normal mtidle.kf and works perfectly fine together with this mod

The thing works fine in my game. However, I do not play as male, and as such cannot test that path extensively. Hence the 0.8 version

0.8 - open beta release
0.8u1 - Update 1, more animations, corrected "Must return file" tags on parent idles.

I go by username "Raestloz" both in nexus forums and bethsoft forums.
