ABOUT
There are a handful of active animators still on the site adding new aniamtions for Skyrim. But all their downloads are "Modder's Rescources" meaning that unless you are a user who knows how to mod a game via scripting and creation kit, you may have to wait till someone else adds the animations via their mod.

 

But not any more.

 

With the release of the SexLab Animation Loader (SLAL) by @orxx, users who are not not familiar or confident with the Skyrim's papyrus script and how to compile then can use this hand little mod tool to add the animations effortlessly, with a tiny little bit of python knowlegde needed. The user sets up a text file with simple python codes which is then converted into a JSON file which Skyrim can then read to add the animations to SexLab.

 

GUIDE
You will find in this download page a PDF file written by @rydin that will look to support anyone new to the world of scripting and coding through a step-by-step guide. It is recommended that you read the guide in full from start to finishlike any other learning task; when learning a new job it doesn't click until you've had all the training. The support thread is a place for all your questions and queries, wither it be from using the packs to understand the scripts and error messages produced by python/FNIS.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE GUIDE IS ONLY CURRENTLY FOR PEOPLE MAKING PACKS FOR THEMSELVES (MODDERS). IT IS NOT FOR PEOPLE INSTALLING THE PACKS (USERS). IF YOU ARE JUST INSTALLING THE PACKS, PLEASE READ THE INSTALL SECTION BELOW.

 

PACKS
You will also find animations packs created by the joint effort of our community. These packs can be download and used with SLAL to add animations into the game if you have no plan to make your own. Take into mind these packs will be the responsiblity of the people who make them. Each person will have a different view to what should be tagged what and how. If you are unhappy with the way the user has packed the animations, I recommend you to read the guide and make your own.

REQUIREMENTS
SexLab Animation Loader - you must have this installed and any of it's requirements or none of the packs will work.

 

INSTALLATION
Installing the packs can not be any easier, however it is still very important that you read the instructions first of all and then check the support pages made by the pack makers for any further instructions. Failure to do so can lead to the packs not working,

 

It is highly recommended that you install with a mod manager such as Mod Organizer or Nexus Mod Manager (NMM).

  • First, install SexLab Animations Loader (SLAL) and all it's requirements under the "Dependencies for Users".
  • Download the desired packs that you wish to load (see the support thread for details on what the packs contain).
  • Install each pack one by one. If you use Mod Organizer, the should be installed as a proirity below SLAL. If you use NMM, they should be installed after SLAL is installed. If you install manually via drag and drop (not recommended) any Meshes, Textures or SLAnims folders and their contents must be installed inside the Data folder. Ensure that all files are there as sometimes the .json files are not added correctly in the process.
  • Run "FNIS For Users" to update your animations lists.
  • Load your game.
  • Visit the SL Anims MCM menu and select the animations you wish to load.
  • Select "Register" to add them to SexLab.


Following these instructions will get the animations in game. If you cannot get them in game, there may be an issue with your setup.

 


SUPPORT & TROUBLESHOOTING
Each pack makers ideally should offer support on the packs they make. Wrong alignment, actors facing the incorrect way, animations not playing, they should all be reported to this thread. Please refrain from PMing myself and the pack makers with your fault; if you post it in the thread you will get a quicker response and that response may help more than just you. You can find all the download pages and support/known bug links on this post.

 

** Take note that the current limit of SexLab 1.59c is 128 animation forhumans and 128 for creatures with 1.60+ being 350 respectively. If you have more than these animations, some will not show as you cannot register over these limits. Also take note that if you use Poser Packs like Shocky or Halo, FNIS has a limit of how many HKX files can be registered (I am unsure of the limit at this time but I will find out) and this can result in HKX files not being reigstered which can break animations. Both of these are issues SLAL cannot resolve.

 

When using these packs, you can easily go over the SexLab and FNIS limits and curropt your saves. The purpose of NSAP when it was first created was to give you choice and SLAL enhances that choice. The prupose of these mods is not so you can have every animation in game, but more that you can choose which animations to have in game. ModOrganizer is particularly good for this as you can then set which packs to activate depending on which game style you wish to play.

 

With the amount of available animations (and idles/poses) well over the limits of SexLab and/or FNIS can provide, you risk damage to your game. The modders, pack makers and myself cannot be responsible for this.
