This mod improves the ability to walk, run, swim and jump by taking into account the landscape, any items carried/worn and the weather. It also adds the ability to sprint.

Walking, running and swimming speed and jumping height are now affected by how much you're carrying, the clothing you're wearing and your surroundings. Running through water, climbing mountains and carrying many items will slow you down and drain fatigue. Also weather conditions, like rain and wind, affect your ability to move. This could either speed up or slow down the character depending on wind speed and direction.

Clothing affects your movement speed, where wearing heavy clothing will lower the movement penalty of snowy weather, while wearing heavy clothing when swimming could result in drowning. Drowning is based on both the type of clothing worn and the amount of items carried. Additionally, running backwards is no longer as fast as running forwards.

Sprinting increases running (and swimming) speed at the cost of fatigue. By default the [CAPS LOCK] key is assigned to both sprinting and the "always run" control. When running this key toggles sprinting, while standing still toggles between running and walking.
