Tool to generate automatocally a poser plugin based on your mods

OSelector is a tool to automatically generate a poser plugin for OSA based on a folder, whether it is your entire data/ folder, or a mod folder. With this plugin, you can easily and quickly play a single animation from any mod, from a simple navigation menu displayed through OSA UI. Whether you want an navigation menu for a mod containing 10 animations or 14000 animations from your entire data/ folder, the menu will be automatically generated  and splitted into differents folders with appropriate name when possible. However, if you want a better menu, you can edit it by :

  • reorganizing folders and entries with a drag&drop functionality and a few other actions
  • editing names of folders and entries
  • editing icons displayed by the menu

Animations that can be played are the ones which are registered using FNIS. The plugin is just an xml file, which is read by OSA, so no esp slot is taken. It also means that any animation mod author can pack his mod with the generated plugin. It will be ignored for those who do not have OSA installed, but those who do can easily and quickly preview their animations.

This plugin use the MyAnimation functionality from OSA:

Description of MyAnimation from OSA:  

MyANIMATION: functions exactly the same as MyEquip except it plays animations.
It's a text data poser mod without the need for rings. You can group your animations into categories however you like.
They can play directly from the list on the player character or on a target. Note that MyAnim is different from the animation engine,
the animation engine has lots of empowered features for animated scene creators where as MyAnim functions like a poser mode
where it simply plays single animations.

Preview of an automatically generated menu after scanning a folder


  • Works on Oldrim and SSE.
  • OSA
  • At least a mod containing animations using FNIS, otherwise there is no use to launch the tool.



  • Download the tool.

You can run the tool anywhere. Also it generates two files in the same folder:

  • a config file named conf.ini
  • a log file named logs.log

If you delete the config file, a new one will be automatically generated with the default settings. You can edit this file to better suit your needs. For more information on this, please refer to the Configuration section

As for the log file, you can delete without worries, as it will be overwritten/generated everytime you launch the tool. If you do not need it you can disable it in the conf.ini file.

Generated plugin

When launching the tool for the first time (or after erasing the conf.ini file), the tool will ask you if you use Mod Organizer. If you do, you have to specify the mods/ folder of Mod Organizer. If you do so, the plugin will be installed in the mods/ folder, which means you just have to refresh the left pane of Mod Organizer and activate the plugin. For the next time, if you generate a plugin with the same name, you don't need to do anything, since the plugin is already activated and the old file will be overwritten.

If you don't use Mod Organizer, you can specify the data/ folder of your installation.  You won't have to do anything. As for using other mod manager, I'm not sure how they store mods. One way is to archive the generated plugin and install it with your mod manager of your choice.


  • Delete your conf.ini file
  • Replace the old .exe with the new .exe.


  • Delete the .exe, the conf.ini and the logs.log files
  • Detele the mod folder generated by the plugin

Basic usage

  • First step is to specify the folder you wish to scan for animations (usually data/ or mods/). It will register every animation using FNIS. It will automatically build a menu for you, with appropriate names and structure so you don't have to edit it during step 2, unless you want to improve it.
  • During second step, the menu will be displayed. It is represented by a tree structure. That's how it will be organized in-game. Next, if you want to improve it, you can edit the tree by changing names, reorganizing folders and entries and changing their icon. To prevent the screen from being cluttered with entries, at generation each page is limited to 25 items (configurable). It means that the tool will organize the tree in such a way that an folder cannot have more than 25 entries. But if you edit it yourself with Drag&Drop this rule is not applied (Meaning you can force a page to have more than 25 entries).
  • The third and final step is the plugin generation, where you just have to click on Generate Plugin and specify the name of your plugin.

If you make no edit to the tree, this process should not take more than two minute, depending on your hardware and the number of animations. For example, I have currently ~14 000 animations installed. With the tool, it took only 18 seconds from opening to the plugin's generation.

Other functionalities

  • You can also edit existing plugin by loading them. After this, you can scan other folders or even load other plugins to add them to the menu and merge them.
  •  Cleanup button is removing folders with 0 child. If a folder has only one child, the child replace the folder.

Usage In-Game

To use the plugin, you must have OSA installed. Then press Enter on your numpad to open OSA UI. Then go to Inspect Self > Interact > Animate > [NAME OF YOUR PLUGIN]. Depending of the number of animations and your PC, it can take some time to load the plugin.

For who is this tool ?

  • Anyone who want to quickly want to make navigation menu for a mod containing animations or for his entire data folder.
  • Anyone who want to make a navigation menu with better names and organization or to tweak an  existing one. Also everyone can share his file, if he did a menu with better names and organization, like Morra's Poser Pack. But the user have to have the animations installed. Or the user can load the shared plugin and remove the animations he does not have.
  • Mod Authors can use the tool to generate a poser plugin for theirs animation mod and  add it to the package. So when a user has OSA and the mod, he can easily cycle through his animations, without using rings.

How many animations ?

The tool should be able to handle a very large amount of animations. Each mod have usually one FNIS file, containing information about animations. Some have more than one FNIS file. However if one file contains more than 8 750 animations (It's a lot, the most I have seen is ~2 750 from Halo's mod), I cannot guarantee that the menu will be well splitted.

I've tested with roughly 14 000 animations from differents mods and everything seemed fine.

Supported Animations

Normally all animations using FNIS should work out of the box. (The xml file is just exposing animation id to OSA engine)
I could test only the following :
  • Basic animation (Pose)
  • Sequence animation (Animation with multiple stages)
  • AnimObj animation (Animation with objects)


Some settings (like the max number of items per page) can be changed by editing the conf.ini file. If you do not see one, launch the tool once. It will automatically generate a new one. More information available on GitHub.


Q: Where can I found an icons list available in OSA?

Download the file : icons_list in the Files section under the miscellaneous section.

Q: Why are some names weird ?

The Tool is supposed to handle all kind of animations using FNIS. But not every modders
follow the same naming guidelines. So to be the most accurate the tool is dependant of
the three following names:

  • Package name (name of the mod)
  • Module name (name of the FNIS file)
  • Animation name (More exactly name of the stage)

These names are used to build the navigation menu. There is some tweak applied to each of them to be more readable and understandable, but this a functionality I want to improve.

Also, some names are very long which overlap with other entries from OSA UI. To prevent this, each string is limited to 25 characters (also configurable)

And last thing, the tree is automatically cleaned up of every folder containing zero child, or only one child (the child replace his parent). For now I haven't found a way to guess which name is better (the child or the parent ?).

Q: Would there be any benefit to using this over the Morra's Poser Pack?

A: Morra's poser pack is a very good poser plugin, with a great number of animations and a very good menu. In fact, this kind of plugin is in some way the end goal of the tool. However, you may find that some mods have been updated. Unless Morra updates his plugin, you will be missing  animations. That were the tool comes in handy, since you can easily scan the mod folder and register all animations from it. If you wish to keep Morra's menu but also adding animations from updated mods, you can do so by following this procedure:

  • Open PoserModule.xml (from Morra's Poser Pack)
  • Delete the third three lines :

<global id="PoserModule"/>
<folderstyle fc="FFFFFF" h="h_bigdot_op" th="1.5" b="" lc="FFFFFF" h="!" sh="sq" sth="3" sb="000000" slc="!"/>
<entrystyle fc="FFFFFF" h="h_bigdot_op" th="1.5" b="" lc="FFFFFF" h="!" sh="ci" sth="3" sb="e86570" slc="FFFFFF"/> 

  • Rename the file "PoserModule.myo"
  • Launch the tool
  • Load the file "PoserModule.myo"
  • Then scan any folder you want, like one of the updated mod
  • When asked, choose __"Append"__, and __"Yes"__ (to ignore already existing
    animations, so you don't have duplicates). New animations will be added, now you can merge the new ones with Morra's Poser pack.
  • If there are empty folders (like a "Set X" without child), click multiple
    times on the __"Cleanup"__ button until there is no more.
  • Once finished, clicked __"Generate Plugin"__
  • Since a new plugin is generated, you should deactivate Morra's Poser Pack

Known Bug

Sometimes after closing and reopening, all menu entries are duplicated (even the one not generated with the tool).

Thanks to CE0 and the OSA Team for this awesome engine/framework
