Introduction
Ever noticed that in the Witcher 3 NPC animations have weird speed (too slow or too fast)?
Let me intoduce 
Speed Force!
The mod corrects NPC animation speed, i. e. accelerates too slow anims or decelerates too fast anims. It changes the speed of each NPC animation separately. This is not about changing the speed of the whole NPC animation pack by one value.
I always didn't like that devs have deliberately decelerated enemies' combat animation speed, especially humans. Now they move like they really want to kill you.
The mod changes .w2beh files which don't affect cutscenes where it can ruin lypsync of speakable NPCs and suchlike.
The mod reveals its full potential together with the popular overhaul mods.

Here is the list of some popular overhaul mods are working well with Speed Force:
  • FCR3 - compatible with script merging;
  • ESGO - compatible with script merging;
  • W3Redux - compatible with script merging;
  • LFT - compatible with script merging;
  • Ghost Mode - use the corresponding compatibility from MAIN FILES;
  • W3EE - use the corresponding compatibility from MAIN FILES and set a higher priority;
  • Lazarus Project - use the corresponding compatibility from MAIN FILES and set a higher priority.

Here is the list of some popular mods which also change the speed of NPC animations:
  • Faster Fatties - compatible without script merging, but I don't recommend to use this mod along with Speed Force, because the accelerated animations by both of these mods in total will be insanely fast that it can be seemed silly;
  • True Monsters - the same;
  • Skilled Humans - not compatible.
