About this mod

SKSE plugin that introduced modern action game combat pathing AI into skyrim.

Requirements
Permissions and credits


Issue Descriptions:

The melee combat pathing AI of vanilla skyrim was only designed for the skating attack mechanism, It used a single generic AI data for all types of enemies in game, which caused the lacking of diversity and extending, thus it now fail to match those modern action game moveset that introduced by MCO or any other modern action game framework.

Therefore, Combat Pathing Revolution (refer as CPR) is created to fill in this missing piece of the puzzle.




Mod Features:

CPR introduces a dynamic and highly customizable AI pathing framwork for melee combat, It allows modern action moveset designers to apply specialized pathing AI data for his moveset, to make skyrim npcs moving in combat as those in modern action games. There are four types of AI moving behavior that CPR allow for customize:
  • Advance: decided how AI perform when approaching it combat target.
  • Backoff: decided how AI perform when short distance retreating from it combat target.
  • Circle: decided how AI perform when circling it combat target.
  • Fallback: decided how AI perform when long distance retreating from it combat target.

If you are mod authors/ moveset designers and want to learn more, check this doc, You can also join my discord for discussion.

Relation with MCO, SCAR:
  • MCO: Behavior framework that brought modern action game animations into skyrim.
  • SCAR: AI framework that teached npcs how to utilize the attack animations from MCO or other modern combat framework.
  • CPR: AI framework that teached npcs how to pathing in combat when using those modern action game moveset.

CPR is not doing the same things as "Wait Your Turn".

Incompatible with:
