- Poise (Stagger Resistance)
This mod adopts a new stagger system from 3.0.
The poise is accumulated by poise damage value, and it gets stagger when it exceeds a certain value. Poise value recover to its maximum value when get a stagger. Every time an enemy staggers, poise value of max gradually increases.

It is aimed at preventing too many staggers between players and enemies by barrier of poise.
Depending on the purpose, it does not stagger with normal attacks.
It relates to bash, power attack and bow attack only.

Players staggers by enemy power attacks or bash attacks.
Unlike vanilla, behavior is interrupted.

Attacks by daggers and small animals are hard to stagger due to their low poise damage value.

poise and poise damage depends on weapons, armor, weight(creature only).
Calculate to existing numerical base without a patch.

Heavy armor has high poise value, two handed weapons have high poise damage value. Stagger by bow is also based on poise.

--- Tips ----

Enemy definitely staggers for the first time.
The second time, enemy also stagger with a high probability, because the first poise value is accumulated.
As long as a poise damage does not exceed total poise value at the third time, enemy may not stagger with bash or power attack only once.

- Timed Block
If player is blocking attack at the front for a short time, player don't
stamina/health damage and then attacker staggers and damages stamina.
Player gains the blocking skill. Also, player can also block arrow.
Whether to stagger or not depends on poise value. Player cannot use it when stamina is low.

- Infighting Shield
Expand magical shield when you charge a magic(just after pressing a button)
with the timing of enemy attacking (also arrow) at the front.
You parry the enemy attack, you are not damaged, and then attacker staggers depends on poise.
It consumes 10 magicka on success. Possible range of parrying is limited
than timed block. Bleeding/poison damage is not blocked.

- Speed Bonus
Both enemy and player increase/decrease damage depending on speed and direction.

If player move forward against an enemy, player deal/incoming more damage depending on speed of player.
Conversely, if player moves backwards, player deal/incoming  less damage depending on speed.

Enemy also the same affect. While enemy attack forward, player gets chance of great dealing damage, but also a risk of suffering heavy damage.

Small or floating enemies are out of scope:
Ice wraith, skeever, mud crab, dragon priest etc.


Damage-up at the speed bonus is a multiplier, so you will receive more benefit from the high damage of the two-handed weapon better than dagger.

- Locational Damage
Attack by player bow and crossbow has locational damage.

    Head: Deal additional damage. The amount of additional damage depends on the critical damage and skill of archery.
    Arms: Reduce accuracy rate of bow, lower physical damage and increase cost of destructive magic.
    Foot: Decrease attack and movement speed.

Effect of the shock wave is displayed when succeeds.
This feature is stable and lightweight.

Arms and feet targets around knees and elbows.

- Swing effect
adds a slashing effect to player when swinging a weapon.

- Other features
    + You can block immediately even while attacking.
    + Both players and NPCs consume stamina when blocking attacks.
    + The reach of the bash is shortened.
    + NPC increases speed of weapon switch and pickup.
    + It is safe and lightload because it distributes scripts dynamically only at the start of battle. There is no need to wait for 30 days in skyrim.
    + Can also be used with other combat mod etc, because I don't edit vanilla objects.

- Boss enemies

I set they stronger than others for more exciting.

Need a patch. Read Installation in this description. But incompatible with FNIS Creature.

PCEA - Please use PCEA patch. Backup and overwrite file(, sprintbehavior.hkx, magicbehavior.hkx). If you do not use the patch, player get stuck when sprinting or dodging.

ASIS, ERSO, Enhanced Enemy AI, ACE, High Level Enemies, Combat Evolved, Wildcat, Requiem
Deadly Combat, Duel - Combat Realism
and almost other mods is compatible with this mod. This Mod is placed after from these mods.
If there is same function, turn off either one.

Skyrim Behavior Organizer, The Ultimate Dodge Mod
Edited Behavior file and unsupported FNIS mods is almost incompatible.

Recommended my mod
Ultimate Dragons: Dragon combat overhaul mod was made with the same concept.
TK Dodge: Adds dodge animation for player.
TK HitStop: Player adds a solid feel to weapon strikes and an effect to confirm the hit.

Known / Issue bugs
- Script does not attach to the enemy in combat already.
- If swing effect does not appear, switch or sheathe a weapon.

Trouble Shooting
NPC cannot move after special attack.

Please try following ways.

     1.Install the latest FNIS. 2.If you use mod organizer or Nexus mod manager0.6+,     Make sure below 4 files in Mod Organizer\Overwrite or NMM\Skyrim\overwrite folder or UltimateCombat folder.    meshes\animationdatasinglefile.txt and  animationsetdatasinglefile.txt    meshes\actors\character\behaviors\1hm_behavior.hkx and magicbehavior.hkx. 3.Put directly those files to Skyrim folder\Data.    Example: Skyrim\data\Meshes\actors\character\behaviors\1hm_behavior.hkx, magicbehavior.hkx

Weapons get stuck in hand.
You need to change to another weapon once.
There is no bug occurring after that.

If it still occurs:
This bug does not occur if script works correctly. I guess that your Skyrim script is delayed.
Try to deactivate other mods. Or Turn off swing effect in MCM.
