FAQ, Requests, Compatibility, Troubleshooting, Known Issues:





Movement animations include walk and run in all 8 directions when weapons are sheathed, always facing forward like in vanilla.
If you don't like strafing, 360 Movement Behaviour is compatible.

Triggers when:
Weather Dependant: An actor is outdoors in a blizzard. (See compatibility for weather support.)
Frostfall: If the temperature value is below the "global value" 0
Frostbite, Survival Mode & Frozen North: If you're affected by any cold debuff outdoors
RESTRICTIONS: Vampires, Non-follower Nord NPCs and children are ommitted to prevent seeing the animation set too much. The actor cannot be holding a shield.

Triggers when:
An actor is below 50% health
Survival Mode & RND: If you have the "Starving" status effect
NPC Injured is disabled by default in the MCM due to a health bug in the vanilla game.

Shield Cover:
Triggers when:
A non-guard actor has a shield equipped in rainy weather.
(See compatibility for weather support, as well as for shield positioning (on back) mods.)

Triggers when:
An actor is not wearing clothing, unless in a vanilla player home.
Different animations for male/female. You can swap the anims in the folders if you'd like, the files are unisex.


Fatigued, 2 Stages:
An actor is below 50% stamina, stage 2 below 25% stamina
Survival Mode & RND: If you have an extreme tiredness debuff (Stage 2 animation)
RECTRICTIONS: Stage 2 will not trigger if the actor is holding a shield. (Prevents clipping)
NPC Stage 2 Fatigued is disabled by default in the MCM due to NPC head tracking causing clipping.

Triggers when:
An actor is below 30% magicka,
or has Survival Mode's severe Bone Break Fever, Brain Rot, Rattles or Witbane.

Triggers with:
A 2% chance if the player has the rested, well rested or lovers' comfort bonus
(2% because watching it play every time you stop moving considering how long the buff lasts would not be fun)

Future Plans:

Out of combat idles when weapons are unsheathed See this. (Might still do my own.)
Covering eyes in dust storms or as a vampire when out of shadows.
Out of combat staff cane walking
Integration with Loki's Wade In Water & Sink or Swim, more effort when walking in water
Idle variety (adding 2-3 versions of headache & injured to the 'random pool')
oversight fixes !
