About this mod

Something to replace idle animations and blocking stances. BBB "enabled"

Permissions and credits
Combat Stance Reanimation v3.0
Tired of the bad vanilla idles? Had enough of your character looking afraid to fight when holding a weapon?
This animation replacer might just be what you need.

These are replacements for all the idles when in combat, it includes complementary animations
-Standing and Turning
-Walking and Running


Core folder contains the main animation pack. Meshes folder inside it must be installed in your game Data folder
Recomended: Delete any previous versions, and delete Specialanims.esp plugin if you have one.

Variations folder is full of optional settings. They usually go installed in  Specialanims folder under _male folder (which is where the rest of the normal animations go in the game folder tree) But I've provided an extra readme with more dateiled instructions

Changes in v3.0:

  • Tweaked everything attempting to achieve a more neutral/unisex state for all animations. "No sissy males, no female gorillas" It's difficult since we have to deal with a game which uses the same skeleton for both genders and gave us wine barrels for clothing which makes males look fat and sissy... But I tried, and I think It's down to reasonable levels now.
  • Made a few optional gender based variations still just in case
  • Lots and lots of variations, which now require Blockhead to be used; among those variations there are ideas ranging from just normal variations, like how a weapon is being held, to more elaborate ones, like holding them in a different weapon type stance (IE a combat staff, or dual blades) or even a new combat type (like floating in a lich-like way with a staff)
