webb71, I found uninstalling Falskaar helps with some SD problems. I've had sporadic floating trouble as well.
Currently I'm struggling with the absence of zaz animations (e.g., pillory, posts, cage, etc.), alluded to by Xxantoss on page 128, axel9fr's 2nd post on page 129, axel9fr twice more on 131, ganix15 twice on page 135, x9800 on page 135, omnomnom997's 3rd post on 337, and perhaps Winchester just above. Like them, I'm hoping for a solution.
With SD 5.5.1 and previous versions, after earning 10 or so demerits my character was put on zaz apparatuses and flogged while she moaned in pain. With the SD 7-27-13 version, she is sometimes put on an apparatus for a few seconds while her master does an intercourse animation, then the apparatus disappears and she is moved to the intercourse animation with him. The moaning in pain continues, combined with sexual vocalizations from master and slave. Often the animation of my character on the post, pillory, etc., doesn't play at all when it should. Only the intercourse animation with zaz and SL sounds playing at one time. Also, early in my character's enslavement when demerits are low, she should be whipped while in a kneeling position, but often is standing idle.
I tried deleting mods, using an early character that never had SL, SD, or many mods with scripts, changing load order, and using earlier versions of SL. Thinking it might be similar to the unequip hands problem, I tried unequipping everything except the daedric artifact. I've also tried equipping everything except the hands. Next, I thought I'd start a new character with almost no mods, go to the bandit lair Redoran Retreat, then add the SD mods. If the zaz animations work, I'll add mods until I find the culprit.
As many of you aren't having this problem of SL animations overriding SD animations, there must be a solution. For example, CGI has successfully got SL, SD, Submit, and Defeat properly working together. If someone could help me with a solution, I would be grateful. Naturally, if I find the answer I'll let you know.
