About this mod

SKSE plugin that brings up the modern ACT game‘s combos attack AI into Skyrim.

Permissions and credits
All of my future skse plugins will only support 1.5.97 from now on!

Issue Descriptions:

The vanilla skyrim game engine does not have the concept of combos attack at all, except the right to left and left to right swing attack.

Although modern attack animations framework likes MCO - ADXP, Skysa, ABR had brought up so many modern ACT game movesets into skyrim, for npcs they still not have a brain to waving them properly.

Therefore you would experience npc who using those modern attack moveset could launch only one strike during attacking (MCO), or perform randomizer combos attack without considering the actual situation (Skysa).

For issue above, SCAR - Skyrim Combos AI Revolution is exactly the mod that intend to fix the defect.

Mod Introduction:

SCAR introduces a dynamic and highly customizable AI attack system to the game. Through SCAR you can specify individual attack AI setup for each moveset, NPCs would check the range of distance and angle as well as other conditions before every strike, pick up the attack action that meet the criteria, then perform it. 

In short words, You can understand that as "One Moveset, One Attack AI Setup". 
With SCAR there are now technically possible to introduce those Elden Ring / Dark Souls Boss combos attack into Skyrim!
